Shobha Kapoor is also associated with Balaji Telefilms."

Pathak was quoted by multiple news portal informing, "The court had issued summons to them (Kapoors) and asked them to appear before it in connection with the matter.

But they did not appear before the court following which the warrant was issued against them."
