Actress Rakhi Sawant has reportedly filed an FIR against her Dubai-based boyfriend Adil Durrani at Oshiwara police station in Mumbai after alleging that he assaulted and cheated her. 

According to Sawant, the couple got into a heated argument regarding another actress, Sherlyn Chopra‘s recently surfaced accusation against the actress and her character. Durrani reportedly got tired of the constant attacks on his girlfriend’s character and the spat eventually escalated into a fight.

When the fight reportedly got ugly, Durrani asked her to give back all the money that he had splurged on her. According to Sawant’s report, when she refused to do so, he assaulted her. 

It all apparently started after Sawant supported infamous film producer and director Sajid Khan who entered the latest season of ‘Big Boss,’ which is hosted by Salman Khan. Sajid has faced allegations of sexual harassment by various women in the film industry including Chopra.
