Ac­tress claims mo­lesta­tion by cast­ing agent

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY -

Mum­bai: A 26-year-old ac­tress re­cently filed a mo­lesta­tion case against a cast­ing agent. The ac­cused has not been iden­ti­fied as he is on the run.

The ac­tress has said in her po­lice state­ment that she had gone to the And­heri of­fice of the ac­cused on Septem­ber 19 for an au­di­tion. She then met him at Oshi­wara on Septem­ber 28 where he was in his car.

“He asked me to get into the front seat and started touch­ing my thigh. I pushed his arm away but he kept re­peat­ing the act,” the ac­tress said in her state­ment. “He asked me if I make enough money. I replied in the af­fir­ma­tive. He then said he was at­tracted to me. I told him I did not like his be­hav­iour and left.” Later, the ac­tress sent him a text, say­ing he shouldn’t touch peo­ple against their wish.

On Septem­ber 29, he told her to keep mum about the text or get her rep­u­ta­tion blem­ished. “We have reg­is­tered a case,” said se­nior in­spec­tor SKhanvilkar.
