Bollywood director - Madhur BhandarkarBollywood director Madhur Bhandarkar, accused of rape by an aspiring actress, was Friday granted interim bail till Tuesday.

Principal Sessions Judge R.R. Vachha directed the Mumbai police not to arrest Bhandarkar, director of the critically acclaimed "Chandni Bar", till July 27, when his anticipatory bail plea will be heard.

Police Thursday booked Bhandarkar for rape and threat to life following a complaint by Preeti Jain, a model aspiring to be an actress.

Bhandarkar claimed he had been framed as a role he had spoken to Jain about had not come through.

"I had spoken to Preeti about a role in my upcoming film, but since that did not happen, she's filed a complaint alleging rape," Bhandarkar maintained.

Jain countered that "Bhandarkar cannot get away so easily with what he did.

"I have cell phone bills and other documents to prove my association with Bhandarkar," she added.

Jain, who came to Mumbai five years ago, alleged that Bhandarkar used to send her SMSs regularly, had promised to marry her and to "make me a star".

In her complaint, she alleged that Bhandarkar and she had sex 16 times between 1999 and 2004.

"Bhandarkar had promised of to give me a lead role in his films. However, he didn't offer me a lead role in any of his movies. At times when I refused sex, he raped me," she added in the complaint.

"Bhandarkar has made three films since 1999, namely "Chandni Bar", "Satta" and "Aan" but I did not get any role in any of the movies.

"Bhandarkar's forthcoming movie "Page 3" also does not feature me," Jain said in her complaint.

Jain, who says she was born in Cairo and had lived in Paris, London and Karachi, is set to debut as the leading lady in the relatively unpublicised film "Sab Kuchh", directed by B.R. Ishara.
