'I am not well, but even then I came to court,' Ahuja told the magistrate when asked if he had anything to say.
Ahuja, who was dressed in a blue t-shirt and jeans, was otherwise silent at the hearing at the magistrate's court in Andheri, northwest Mumbai.
He has been remanded to judicial custody till July 16. Though his wife Anupam was not present in court, his father was there.
His lawyer filed a bail application before the sessions court last week which will come up for hearing on Friday.
