In a recent development, the Bombay High Court has extended interim protection from arrest to Nandita Saha and Raadhika Pratap Nanda, partners of Anandita Entertainment LLP, who are accused of defrauding Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi of ₹1.55 crores. Justice SV Kotwal granted protection until February 22, citing that the allegations appeared to be a dispute between business partners rather than a criminal offence. The judge noted that the accusations fell within the clauses of the partnership agreement dated December 1, 2020. The case originated from a complaint filed by Oberoi's company, Oberoi Mega Entertainment LLP.


According to the FIR, Oberoi had entered into a partnership with Sanjay Saha in February 2020, and the dispute arose concerning the formation of Anandita Entertainment LLP. While Oberoi invested ₹27 lakh for a 33.33% share, he alleged being cheated of ₹1.55 crore, with specific allegations against the accused women regarding investments and salary withdrawals. With Sanjay Saha in judicial custody, Nandita and Raadhika sought anticipatory bail, initially denied by the sessions court and later granted interim relief by the Bombay High Court.

The High Court's decision was based on the contention that the partnership agreement covered the allegations against the accused. The applicants argued that decisions were primarily taken by Sanjay Saha, and the agreement outlined provisions for the welfare of partners, covering the accusations levelled against them.

The court, agreeing with this perspective, has scheduled the matter for further hearing on February 22, 2024. The case highlights the intricacies of business partnerships within the entertainment industry, and the legal proceedings will continue to unfold as the accused women navigate the judicial process.
