The complaint referred to accusations of sexual harassment against Mr Kumar made in a blog post by an anonymous woman who claimed to be a former TVF employee. TVF has denied the allegations.
Advocate Rizwan Siddqiuee, the lawyer, said that a third person can set in motion a criminal case in such matters, so he had approached the police.
"I have filed a complaint against Arunabh Kumar for intentionally indulging in various wilful, criminal, vulgar and contentious acts of sexual harassment against a woman at workplace," he said.
Senior police inspector Shailesh Pasalwad of MIDC police said they had received Siddiquee's application/complaint.
Several women associated with TVF alleged sexual harassment by Mr Kumar after the anonymous blog-post went viral. TVF has denied these charges.
