Any­one else in my po­si­tion would have com­mit­ted sui­cide: Shilpa Shinde

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Kavita Awaasthi kavita.awaasthi@htlive.com

Here’s what Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai fame ac­tor Shilpa Shinde has to say to any­one who doubts her in­ten­tions for fil­ing an FIR against the show’s pro­ducer San­jay Kohli, ac­cus­ing him of sex­ual ha­rass­ment. “Jitne muh utni baatein! Peo­ple think I’m do­ing all this for money or some­thing else. Ev­ery­one has dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ences. I had a lot of things go­ing on and I am deal­ing with it in my own way. It is not easy to talk about such things... I’ve been through a lot. Had any­one else been in my po­si­tion, the per­son would’ve com­mit­ted sui­cide,” says Shinde.

Speak­ing to HT, ac­tor Kavita Kaushik (in­set) had slammed Shilpa for rais­ing the is­sue only last month, al­most a year af­ter Shilpa claims it hap­pened. “I want to tell her [Kavita], who said I’m set­ting a bad ex­am­ple for other girls who go through this, that she’s right. I shouldn’t have. If you wait, you’re blamed for wait­ing.” She adds that last year when she had quit the pop­u­lar show, she had ac­cused the Kohlis (San­jay and his wife Be­naifer) of men­tal ha­rass­ment. She’s still fight­ing for her un­paid dues amount­ing to `32 lakhs.

Shilpa ar­gues that she was “banned un­of­fi­cially” by the in­dus­try mem­bers, and that the Kohlis have filed a case against her for losses worth `12.5crore. “I had a bit­ter ex­pe­ri­ence. They are flour­ish­ing while I’m the one suf­fer­ing,” adds Shilpa, who re­sorted to stage shows af­ter quit­ting the show.
