Hyderabad: Film actor Hrithik Roshan, the brand ambassador of Cult.Fit Healthcare and the directors of the company have been booked in a case of cheating by the KPHB police of Cyberabad. A complaint was lodged by one of the users of the gym, that the company had advertised about guaranteeing weight loss and daily work out sessions, but has failed to keep their promise.
I. Shashikanth, a resident of Seshadrinagar in Kukatpally lodged a complaint with the KPHB police on June 22, stating that he had enrolled with the Cure.Fit gym during December 2018, by paying Rs 17,490, the discounted rate for a period of one year, to avail the gym’s services.
The company which started its operations in September 2018, had advertised promising unlimited hours of workout classes and weight loss treatments, but did not give proper workout sessions, he alleged. “A total of 1,800 people had enrolled with the Cure.Fit and there was not sufficient carpet area to provide workout sessions. Apart from that, the workout sessions were not available for three days at a stretch, which is denying us good health benefits. Besides the bad behaviour of the people at Kukatpally centre has brought about mental depression,” alleged Mr Shashikanth.
He told the police that when he contacted the directors to complain about the issue, he was denied access from using their application to book the workout slots.
KPHB inspector K. Laxmi Narayana said: “Shashikanth has complained that he was not given proper training as promised by the company in its advertisements and he has alleged cheating by the directors of the company and also its ambassador, actor Hrithik Roshan. A case has been registered under sections 406 and 420 of IPC against the actor and three directors Mukesh Bansal, Ankit Nagori and Shanmugavel Mani Subbaiah. Investigation is underway.”...
