From Shraddha Kapoor to Ranbir Kapoor here’s a list of Bollywood celebs named in Mahadev App betting scam

The ED has summoned several Bollywood celebrities, including Kapil Sharma, Huma Qureshi, Hina Khan, and Shraddha Kapoor, in connection with the Mahadev Betting App Case.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned comedian Kapil Sharma, Bollywood female stars Shraddha Kapoor and Huma Qureshi, and TV celebrity Hina Khan in connection with the Mahadev betting app case. They were called a day after the ED summoned actor Ranbir Kapoor, and have been ordered to appear in court on October 6.

According to reports, Uravashi Rautela, Ameesha Patel, Boman Irani, and Guru Randhawa may also be questioned in connection with this scam.


It was originally stated that more than 17 Bollywood celebrities are being investigated in the matter.

Saurabh Chandrakar and Ravi Uppal, the creators of the Mahadev app, are accused of using money obtained through betting to bribe celebrities. According to ED sources, over a dozen A-listers, including Bollywood and Tollywood celebrities and athletes, are being investigated. Ranbir Kapoor is reportedly the highest-paid celebrity among these names, and he promoted the app on social media.

The central agency will eventually summon more than 100 influencers who pushed the app. In addition, more than 14 celebrities who attended a wedding celebration hosted by the app’s promoters in Dubai will be summoned.

Meanwhile, it was then revealed that Ranbir’s team contacted the ED and asked two weeks to appear in front of the agency. The ED has “not confirmed any communication yet” with his team.

A source also said Ranbir has not been summoned as an accused. “Ranbir Kapoor has been summoned to understand the betting business transactions. At this point, he has not been summoned as accused. His questioning is important to know his knowledge about the money sources he received. It will possibly indicate the promoters’ plans and their association,” the source said .

“Ranbir Kapoor may not be part of conspiracy but very important to understand the scam,” the source added.

In addition, Tiger Shroff, Sunny Leone, Atif Aslam, Bharti Singh, Sonakshi Sinha, Pulkit Samrat, and Nushratt Bharuccha performed during the lavish wedding of the company’s promoter Saurabh Chandrakar in the UAE.


What is Mahadev App?

The Mahadev app, according to the ED, is an umbrella syndicate that provides online platforms for illicit betting websites to register new clients, generate user IDs, and launder money through a layered network of benami bank accounts.

The most recent internet gaming laws limit betting.

The company’s owners, Sourabh Chandrakar and Ravi Uppal, are from Bhilai in Chhattisgarh and manage its operations from Dubai. According to the investigation agency, they run four to five similar applications daily and make over 200 crore.

According to the ED, they spend a lot of money in India to advertise betting websites and recruit new users and franchise applications. Last month, assets totaling 417 crore were seized in connection with the Mahadev betting app during searches at 39 addresses in Mumbai, Kolkata, and Bhopal.

The Mahadev app was investigated after Chandrakar’s 200-crore February wedding in the UAE, which was entirely paid in cash.
