Earlier in the day, the Bollywood producer surrendered before Hyderabad Police after the Supreme Court dismissed his anticipatory bail petition on Friday.
An aspiring actress had lodged a complaint against Morani accusing him of raping and assaulting her in a hotel in Hyderabad.
After the apex court directed him to surrender to police, Morani surrendered at the Hayathnagar police station at 9:00 am.
A case was registered under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 417 (cheating), 376 (rape) 342 (wrongful confinement), 506 (criminal intimidation), 493 (cohabitation caused by a man deceitfully inducing a belief of lawful marriage) and other relevant sections.
Morani, who produced Bollywood movie 'Chennai Express' 'Dilwale,' 'Ra.One' was brought to court later in the day.
The High Court for Telangana and Andhra Pradesh at Hyderabad had on September 5 upheld a Sessions Court's decision cancelling Morani's bail in the rape case.
Morani is also an accused in the 2G scam.
