Udit NarayanUdit Narayan in polygamy scandal

Renowned Bollywood singer Udit Narayan landed in a polygamy scandal when a woman tried to barge into the singer's room in a hotel in Patna, claiming that she was his first wife.

A high-voltage drama was witnessed at the upmarket Maurya Hotel in Patna on Friday when a woman claiming to be the first wife of Narayan made a futile attempt to enter his room.




Ranjana Narayan, who claimed she was married to Narayan in 1984 when he was a little known singer, created a flutter when she defied hotel security guards and tried to force her entry into room number 401 occupied by him, hotel sources said.

The singer left the hotel soon after the incident, they added.

Ranjana, who had obviously leaked the information about her proposed visit to the hotel to TV news channels, repeatedly knocked at the door of the room, which was not opened.

"I have come here to seek justice. He kept me in the dark about his second marriage with Deepa, also a playback singer, for years and now I have come to seek my rightful place," she told reporters.

She carried with scores of still photographs of the singer and herself besides other family members.

When asked why she was raising the matter now several years after the singer's alleged second marriage to Deepa, who has a son from Udit, Ranjana said "Whenever I threatened to go public about our marriage, he silenced me with threat of committing suicide. Now I have no fears and I will take legal recourse."

"Look the man has no courage to come out and speak to me. He is in the room with his second wife," she said continually tapping the door of the room ignoring requests by the hotel's security staff to leave the place.

As Ranjana refused to vacate the place, a posse of policemen arrived on the scene and soon the door opened to let Narayan and Deepa out. They were escorted by the police to the airport where the singer had to board a flight to Mumbai.

"I don't know this woman and I have never met her before. These are attempts to malign me," Narayan said later.

Maintaining this was yet another attempt to blackmail him, Narayan said "I had received threatening calls 4-5 years ago but I did not pay heed to them. I was under the impression that this was common occurrence with artistes."

In Patna to attend the marriage of his niece, he said he would lodge a report with police after consulting his lawyers in Mumbai.

Earlier, when contacted by a news agency on phone at his suite, Narayan had said ''I am sleeping. Call me an hour later.'' However, he left the hotel for the airport within minutes of the call.

The singer refused to take questions from the media at the airport and there was a scuffle between his guards and some crew of the electronic media when they tried to have the soundbites of Deepa Narayan, Narayan's Nepalese wife.

A few microphones of the TV crew were damaged but nobody was hurt.

Ranjana said that she would seek an appointment with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar seeking his intervention to ensure that justice was done to her.

''I want my rightful place as the wife of Udit Narayan and I am confident that Nitishji will see to it that I get it,'' she said adding if nothing positive came out of her meeting with the Chief Minister she would move court.

When contacted, Additional Director General of Police (Headquarters) Abhayanand and Patna Senior Superintendent of Police Kundan Krishnan said the singer had phoned seeking security saying a woman and media persons had blocked the door of his suite and he had to catch a flight.
