The Chennai Police have reportedly registered a case against actor Hrithik Roshan and eight others in connection with a complaint by a stockist R Muralidharan. According to a report in TOI, the latter stated that he was appointed as a stockist to merchandise products under the brand HRX, which was launched by Hrithik in 2014. He also alleged that the actor and others conspired to dupe him of Rs 21 lakh.

He accused the firm of not supplying the products regularly claiming that even the marketing team was dissolved without his knowledge. As a result, the products became stagnated as there were no sales. Muralidharan further stated that when he returned the portion of the stagnated products, the accused didn’t pay him for it.
