Even fame comes at a price... In Rani's case its 15 Lakhs....

A working still from Eon Films "Saazish"
Yes, even fame comes with a price… In this case it’s only Rs. 15 Lakhs for a life. Recently Rani Chatterjee - One of the reigning queens of Bhojpuri Film industry, who has major hits like Sasura Bada Paisawala, Munnibai Nautankiwali and the recent hit Damini, received an SMS from schoolteacher Ajay Pandey on December 11 which said that he would have to kill her if she did not give him more than Rs 15 lakh in three days.

So terrified was this actress, that she filed a complaint with the Kashimira police instantly. The caller claimed to be a tantrik and told her that he was hired by a top Bhojpuri Actor who was smitten by her. Since she did not respond to his overtures, he is seething with anger and has vowed revenge. The tantrik told her that he will have to kill her through chanting mantras. But she can avoid this and buy her life if she upped his bid and paid him more than 15 Lakhs what he was being paid. The Actor in question is the famed Pawan Singh according to some media reports. However, the real reason is yet to be made public by the police who have arrested the accused.

The police started investigating on the case and it lead them to Barrackpore in West Bengal.  When the team reached Barrackpore, the officers were surprised to learn that the owner of the number was not of a tantrik, but government schoolteacher Ajay Pandey.

"I was not even aware of this person until I got the threatening text messages from him," said Rani. “Perhaps, the lure of money led him to strike a deal with me and he told me that he would spare me and kill the actor instead if I paid him an amount higher than Rs 15 lakh. I was scared and decided to approach the Kashimira police."

Rani will be seen soon in "Saawariya I Love You" which is being presented under the banner of Eon Films and has Vinnay Anand, Gourav Ghai and others in the lead.
