Mumbai, Nov 24 (IANS) Denying any knowledge of any loan by actress Preity Zinta to his late elder brother for which she has filed a suit, legendary filmmaker Kamal Amrohi's younger son Tajdaar said he could not be held responsible for any such debt.
"Where was she all this while and why now suddenly after two and half years she is asking for money? If at all she had given money to my brother, how am I or my family responsible for returning that money?" he asked.
"I was not the witness when this happened and neither my brother informed me about this... now suddenly how can she target me," Tajdaar told IANS.
Preity has filed a suit in the Bombay High Court against Tajdaar, seeking to recover a principal amount of Rs.2 crore and interest of Rs.80 lakh that she says she lent to late Shandar Amrohi two and a half years back.
The loan was to help Shandar fight a legal battle and was extended on the assurance it would be returned. After his death, when her verbal requests to his family for repaying the money went unheeded, she moved the court, Preity said.
Tajdaar also claimed Preity is in depression and needs medical help.
Contacted for comments, Preity's manager said she was travelling.
