Karim Morani has been known to be a close friend of Shah Rukh Khan, and has been involved in films such as ‘Happy New Year’ (2014), ‘Chennai Express’ (2013) and ‘Dilwale’ (2015).  He has recently been accused of raping a woman, but he denies the charges against him.  He claims they are ‘absolutely false and bogus’.

According to Mid Day, the producer’s spokesperson said, “The complaint is absolutely false and bogus with the sole intention of tarnishing Mr Morani’s reputation and image. Mr. Morani will be taking appropriate steps in accordance with law to demonstrate that complaint is malafide. He is truthful and innocent and has full faith in the judiciary and is ready and willing to co-operate with the authorities to the fullest extent.”

The women aged around 25 years old, claimed Morani raped her in Hyderabad in a film studio.  She has raised a complaint with the Hayathnagar police.

According to a police officer, the producer has several charges of cheating, wrongful confinement, criminal intimidation and cohabitation caused by a man deceitfully inducing a belief of lawful marriage under the Indian Penal Code.

The woman claims she would get a break for films and met Morani with this intention. She claimed the producer threatened her not to disclose what he did to any one.

Morani has also been accused of other wrongful doings, with the funding of a Tamil television channel.
