MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate on October 6 in connection with an online betting case.
As per sources in the Enforcement Directorate, Ranbir Kapoor promoted a subsidiary app which is also promoted by Mahadev Book app promoters. The actor took money in cash for the promotion, sources said.
