dilip kumarA Mumbai court on Tuesday acquitted veteran Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar from alleged involvement in an 18-year-old cheque bouncing case.

Dilip Kumar, 94, was not present in the court when the matter came up for hearing before 14th Court Metropolitan Magistrate B.S. Kharade.

The case dates back to 1998 when the actor was the honorary chairman of an export company, Geekay Exim India Ltd, which subsequently defaulted on repayments.

The company had raised loans of millions of rupees from people across India and later issued cheques for repayment of the outstandings.

Today, the court has reached to a conclusion that the 94-year-old actor and one more director were not the active participants in the trading company. Hence, Kumar is freed from the millstone around his neck.

Ahead of the verdict, actress Saira Banu  took to Twitter and asked fans to pray for her husband’s health and the case.
