Popular Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan was booked by Hyderabad police in a case of cheating after complainant Shashikanth leveled allegations on fitness chain Cult.Fit on Wednesday. Now, the fitness chain has come out to present their side of the story in an official statement.
The fitness brand has alleged that they were forced to take action against complainant Shashikanth because of his inappropriate and violent behavior with its staff. The brand said in their statement that they are a responsible company, which is conscious about the health and safety of both its customers as well as its staff members.
Here’s what the statement read:
“Cult.fit is a responsible company conscious of the health and safety requirements of both customers as well as it’s staff. The customer in question, Mr. Shashi, has behaved inappropriately and violently with our staff against whom (Mr. Shashi) we were constrained to take action. The current police complaint appears to have been hence filed subsequently against us falsely, while also mischievously dragging our celebrity brand ambassador ,Hrithik Roshan ,wrongly in it. We are cooperating with the authorities as per due process and evaluating remedial action.”
On Wednesday, a case of cheating and criminal breach of trust was filed against actor Hrithik Roshan who is also the brand ambassador of Cult.Fit after one of the gym users named I. Shashikanth from Hyderabad lodged a complaint against the company for not keeping up with their promise of guaranteed weight loss.
On June 22, 2019, he filed a complaint with KPHB police that he joined Cult.Fit Healthcare and paid about Rs 17,490 for all the gym services. A report quoted Shashikhanth as saying, “A total of 1,800 people had enrolled with the Cure.Fit and there was not sufficient carpet area to provide workout sessions. Apart from that, the workout sessions were not available for three days at a stretch, which is denying us good health benefits. Besides the bad behavior of the people at Kukatpally centre has brought about mental depression.”
