The Enforcement Directorate (ED) chargesheet states that Kapil Sharma, a Bollywood comedian, was asked by a celebrity coordinator to advertise the Mahadev app, an illegal online betting platform.
The chargesheet claims that the coordinator offered Sharma Rs. 5 crore to promote the app on his social media and during his shows.
Sharma said no, but the coordinator persisted. The coordinator said the app had powerful support and Sharma would be in trouble if he refused.
The chargesheet also says the coordinator threatened to release Sharma’s personal information if he didn’t cooperate.
Eventually, Sharma agreed to promote the app and was paid Rs. 2.5 crore.
The ED has accused Sharma of money laundering in the Mahadev app case.
Sharma denies the allegations and claims he didn’t know the app was illegal.
The Mahadev app case is a major online betting scam in India. The app allegedly made over Rs. 2,000 crore in revenue.
The ED has arrested several people, including actors Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
The chargesheet against Kapil Sharma is a significant development in the case.
It shows the ED is investigating all aspects of the scam, including the involvement of celebrities.
It will be interesting to see how the case progresses.
