Subsequently, the office-bearers of the Pune City Congress committee, including Ramesh Bagwe, Mohan Joshi, Datta Bahirat, Sangeeta Tiwari and myself, met senior police officials from the cyber crime cell. A formal complaint in the case was given by Sangeet Tiwari. The police have acted on it and a case has been registered at Shivaji Nagar Police Station,” Pune Congress spokesperson Ramesh Iyer said.

This is not the first time that the 36-year- actor has landed herself in legal trouble. In 2019, Rohatgi was by Rajasthan Police for her alleged comments against former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

More recently, in the month of June, Satellite Police in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, had her on 27 August for threatening and hurling abuse at the chairman of her society on social media. Payal Rohatgi was later released on bail.

Rohatgi made her acting debut in 2002 with the film Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hai? She was later seen on reality TV shows like Khatron Ke Khiladi 2 and Bigg Boss 2.
