Mumbai, Feb 2 (UNI) A local court today directed Bollywood actress Sridevi to remain present during next hearing on March 7 of a cheque bouncing case, filed against her by proprietors of Photo Film Industries.
Advocate H H Nagi, who is representing Sridevi, moved an exemption application for physical appearance of his client for the next ten days on medical grounds.
Metropolitan Magistrate S R Jagtap at the Kurla court granted permission for the same and directed Mr Nagi that the actress should be present in the court during the next hearing.
Earlier, Sridevi had moved Sessions Court seeking cancellation of a bailable warrant issued by a trial court for non-appearance in the court. However, the sessions court directed her to go before a proper forum.
The proprietors of Photo Film Industries -- Madhu Gupta and Sushil Gupta --had filed a case against the actress alleging that she had issued two cheques of Rs 92 lakh and Rs 8.41 lakh last year which had bounced.
However, Mr Nagi said the Juhu Police had filed the case against his client without any concrete evidence.
