Q. Threatening

There is a friend who invested some money in my short films in 2016 and when they did not get distributed I put in my hard work and got them on digital platform in revenue share. Since revenue generation is a slow process so he starts threatening me as in if I don't talk to him on phone I got to return the money immediately. And from last one month roughly am Not talking to him in the night on phone . And in 2013 he said he would invest in a film and wasted my 7 months by sending little amount for writing the script and I used to give that money to the director. Every thing he puts on me money is invested in the short film but he thinks that he lended me that money. I never promised him about being a lover or wife and that is his illusion and he makes stories and says "you have to talk to me. It's a relation of 6 years and I have put in money in your short films.." when I don't talk he threatens me and start typing cheap messages . Earlier out of ignorance I used to talk but too much is too much this year I decided come what may I won't talk. At one digital platform his two short films are running. And two more am trying to sell in one time payment. If that happens I will get him the cheque through a common friend but I won't talk to such sick person.
Please guide how to save myself from his threatening and phone calls?
And the deal I gave him some other business deal in 2014 he earned money out of it which he would never tell the correct amount and in that deal I earned some 1 lacs rupees so he keeps putting that also on to me as if I owe him that money. And the gifts I gave him as birthday present as a friend I don't count and believe me I never asked him for any money forcibly and he counts his birthday gift of 10k or 22k and shows I owe him even that. When I talk to him on phone in the night he is okay but when I don't he starts typing cheap messages and threatens me as if I have eaten his money and he knows that the money is invested in short films and the short films he saw and the distribution thing I did not know but just to get him the money for two years 2017 and 2018 I did marketing and got his two shorts on digital platform.
Please guide me how to save myself from his threatening that he would file a case etc.etc. he keeps saying .... So that I keep talking to him in the night on phone and he believes his illusion that "i would be his wife some day ". Please guide.

A. Dear client,
You are advised to immediately lodge a police complaint against said man who is harassing and humiliating you through cheap ways,
If you can share few if such "cheap messages" i can provide more suggestion,
However,
From the available contents I advise you to take services of one prudent lawyer and lodge police complaint against said man.
Don't delay as the delay will increase your harassment and his dare.
Call me for a detailed discussion

A. Ma'am

1. Lodge a complaint in the local Police and file a FIR with immediate effect
2. Send that man a legal notice saying not to harass you or threaten you
3. If even after that he does not cooperate, then,
4. File a case against him so that he gets punished.
Thanks

A. This is a kind of blackmail. In this case he has already committed many criminal offence (starting from cheap messaging) according to the law, so you need to inform him about this through a legal notice. Or else file a direct suit.

A. You can definitely lodge a complaint with the police and depending on what the contents of the messages are, the police will add Indian Penal Code sections and also sections under Information Technology Act to the FIR.

If there is any written contract then the provisions of the contract will have to be honoured by both of you.

Rest if more information in detail is provided either through phone or in person then only precise advise can be given.
