Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui have knowingly or unknowingly fallen into a trouble. As per media reports, a complaint has been lodged to CBI over Rs 500 crore online scam and the names of these two stars have been mentioned too. The CBI has initiated a probe into Rs 500 crore cash-for-click scam allegedly run by Ghaziabad-based Webwork Trade Links. SRK and Nawazuddin have been named in the complaint for endorsing its portal Addsbook.com in 2016.
However, both the stars are not named them as accused in the FIR so far. Of course, CBI will investigate the actors for clarifications as the sources to sort the case. Promoters of Webwork Trade Links, Anurag Jain, and Sandesh Verma, have duped over two lac people by assuring them to have profitable payments for every click on advertisements on their website. The complaint also reveals that after some time the websites stopped functioning. The company also refused to respond to their calls, mentions complainant.
Reports also suggest, with the brand ambassadors Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Shah Rukh Khan, people blindly started investing in the company under their influence.
“People have invested heavily as they were influenced by both celebrities. Addsbook is a shadow company of Webwork Trade Links Pvt Ltd. It is an eyewash to lure more people to join the company. After the endorsement of Addsbook Marketing, innocent people invested their hard earned money in the company, hence both the celebrities are equally responsible for the wrongdoings of the company,” Indian Express quoted the complaint.
Now it remains to see how Shah Rukh Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui react to this and if they were already aware of these frauds.
