Ameesha Patel claims being threatened by Political leader Prakash Chandra

The actress was recently campaigning for the candidate Prakash Chandra in Bihar. She has claimed to have received threats from the leader.

Actress Ameesha Patel claimed that she felt unsafe and fearful while campaigning for Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) candidate Prakash Chandra in Bihar, reported IndiaToday.in. She complained of receiving threats from Chandra and added that she was frightened for herself and the team of people travelling with her. Chandra has rejected the allegations.

Ameesha’s statement was recorded in an interview with India Today TV where she was responding to an audio clip. In the audio clip, Patel is describing her recent visit to Bihar’s Daudnagar. However, the authenticity of the audio clip is yet to be validated.

“I was so scared for my life and for the team of people that were with me that I had no choice but to quietly play along till I safely reached Bombay,” said Ameesha. She claimed that she has been receiving ‘threatening’ calls from Chandra. “Even as I arrived back last evening in Mumbai, he started sending threatening calls and messages and asking me to speak highly of him as I had been honest about my terrible experience with him,” she added.

Ameesha said she felt ‘trapped’ by the leader and that he forced her to say and do things upon his command. She said, “When I reached Mumbai I had to let the world know the truth. I could have been raped and killed. My car was surrounded at all times by his people and they would refuse to let my car move till I didn’t do as he said. He trapped me. And put my life in danger. This was his way of operating.”

However, Chandra maintains that the charges levelled against him are false. Chandra told India Today TV that Ameesha has been paid by the Jan Adhikar Party leader Pappu Yadav to lie about him. He said, “I believe in winning elections on the basis of people’s vote but one of my relatives organized her (Patel’s) rally in Obra. All security arrangements were made for her. The Daudnagar police station in-charge was present in her security detail. None of what she has claimed happened. Does Bihar not have artists? Sonakshi Sinha is also from here. She (Ameesha) met Pappu Yadav at the airport. They made a deal of Rs 15 lakh.”
