TV actress Shilpa Shinde is talk of the town, because she filed an FIR against Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai's producer Sanjay Kohli for sexual harassment. Yesterday, she also spoke on the issue in detail. She said,"Once Sanjay ji told me that for the promotion of show, we will have to go out, and that we will have a nice time. Also, in the make-up room, he came close to me and photo lete huye and apna haath rakha mujhpe. I could feel that the touch was not right."
She also said that her former co star Saumya Tandon knew about this."I spoke to Saumya about this, but she was like - 'Humari industry mein koi rape nai karta Shilpa'. But I told her that I was feeling very uncomfortable. Later I got to know that Saumya had told Binaifer about the whole thing because two days later Binaifer asked me if I wanted to leave the show. She told me - 'Yeh kya keh rahi ho tum, koi pyaar se baat karta hai, toh tumhe yeh sab lagta hai. Humein do minute lagenge tumhara career spoil karne mein."
Recently, Saumya Tandon who plays Anita on the show Issues a statement to DNA and said,"I strongly stand against any kind of sexual harassment of women at work or any place. Having said that, there was absolutely no communication between Shilpa and me about this. Personally, my interactions with my producer has been very professional and I didn't face any problem. I can't comment on Shilpa's case as I am not aware about it."
