Nausheen Shah has claimed she was swindled out of Rs. 3.5 Crore (£98,000) by renowned director Nabeel Lutfi.

According to Nausheen Shah, she entrusted Nabeel with the significant amount of money for cryptocurrency investment.

She claimed that she was swayed by his persuasion regarding its potential.

Additionally, she loaned him an additional Rs. 1.5 million (£4,200) for an upcoming film project, without any written agreement.

Nausheen later discovered that Nabeel and his wife had scammed several other celebrities.

According to the actress, they stole Rs. 60 million (£168,000 before going on the run.

Expressing her dismay over the situation, she emphasised the importance of exercising caution when dealing with financial matters.

Nausheen cautioned against entrusting funds without proper documentation, a lesson learned through her own oversight.

She urged individuals to refrain from engaging in financial transactions with Lutfi.

The revelation has sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry.

Nausheen revealed that authorities have tried to take action.

FIRs have been filed against Nabeel and his wife, who are currently on the run with their phones switched off.

Despite the setback, Nausheen Shah remains undeterred, continuing to captivate audiences with her talent and resilience.

A user said: “Her bravery in confronting the issue with such grace reflects her commitment to integrity and justice within the entertainment industry.”

One wrote: “This is very serious. People get scammed in crypto all the time these days.”

Another said: “I hope they get caught.”

One wrote: “How embarrassing. A renowned director stealing money from celebrities. What did he think was going to happen?”

However, many others pointed out Nausheen’s error of judgement, labelling her as “dumb”.

One remarked: “At least she is admitting that she was dumb enough to make the mistake of not documenting it.”
