Actor Vivek Oberoi's father Suresh Oberoi has complained to the police that he has received underworld threats for recovery of Rs. 5 crore.

“Suresh Oberoi's lawyer gave us a written complaint, saying that a person with whom they are in dispute, is taking the help of the underworld for the recovery of money,” Mumbai Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone IX) Pratap Dighavkar told The Hindu here on Wednesday.

Suresh Oberoi's nephew Anant Oberoi owns a multimedia company in which one Jawahar Ageecha is a partner, the police said. Anant and Jawahar are in a monetary dispute and Mr. Suresh Oberoi had tried to intervene to resolve it.

“Both parties have filed cases against each other and a civil dispute is on,” Mr. Dighavkar said.
