The legal action follows a complaint lodged by Mumbai-based social worker Prakash Bankar, who claims that individuals have been defrauded of over Rs 15,000 crore through the Mahadev betting app. The Matunga Police have initiated proceedings under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, the Gambling Act, and the IT Act, with an ongoing investigation into the matter.

Sahil Khan, known for his roles in films such as Style, Xcuse Me, and Alladin, along with his reputation as a fitness master and YouTuber, allegedly organized celebrity parties to promote the Mahadev app and entice more users.

The Enforcement Directorate is simultaneously investigating the case, which has drawn attention to several Bollywood actors following recent crackdowns on various betting and gaming apps by law enforcement agencies.
