Tinaa Dattaa of Daayan fame went on record to accuse co-star Mohit Malhotra of inappropriately touching her while performing scenes on the sets of the mentioned show. The actress said that she has raised the issue with the production team, and it is now on them to take the appropriate action.
She released a statement on Saturday to the media saying,
“When we shoot a TV show, there are lot of problems, big / small / ugly … I have raised my issues (related to Mohit) with the production team and they have been supportive.”
Talking to Spotboye, Tinaa had said about Mohit
“He would say that his character demands that he should keep his hand here and there. There was a big showdown on the set. It happened at Klick Nixon Studios, when were shooting for a hospital scene. Some media people were also there and they saw this. Of course. I made it loud and clear. I have done rape scenes, romantic scenes and intimate scenes before in my career, but never faced something like this with anyone before. He is so annoying. He is so frustrated.”
It has been also reported that the producer of the show Ekta Kapoor held a meeting with the two following the allegations.
Meanwhile, Mohit Malhotra has denied the allegations.
“If she was uncomfortable, why didn’t she tell me? We shoot on a set with 50 people watching us and everything is on camera. Nothing of this sort happened.”
He further added,
“I don’t understand where is this coming from. After saying nothing happened, now she has gone back to giving contrary statements. How can she keep changing her statements? I have been working in the TV industry since 11 years and have shot with many women and no one has ever had any issues with me. It has taken me a long time to reach this stage in my career.”
It was also reported that post the meeting with the production house, both the actors “gave a statement to a news channel stating all is well”.
