Aspiring Producer Targeted

Sharma, with dreams of making a film titled Love In London starring Kartik Aaryan, reportedly approached Sharma, who claimed to be an agent connecting actors and producers. Between April and May 2023, Sharma convinced Aishwarya of his connections and extracted the hefty sum for facilitating the meeting.
