Filmmaker Onir, who is known for his films My Brother Nikhil and Bas Ek Pal, has suddenly found himself in a bit of sticky situation. A young actor, Yuvraj Parashar, who recently made his debut in a film based on homosexuality, Dunno Y…Naa Jaane Kyun, went all out to allege that Onir molested him.
This has once again brought to the forefront the whole casting couch syndrome that Bollywood is associated with. The actor claims that he took his film to Onir at his Versova house so that the director could see his work and maybe cast him in a future projects. The actor says that after some time of watching the movie, Onir offered him a few drinks and began getting too close for comfort.
Onir on his end denies these allegations and insists that Yuvraj is a big man while he is five foot nothing and therefore it's impossible that he forced himself on him. He states that things took place clearly on mutual consent.
Onir, who is ready with his next film I am, is very disturbed with the recent turn of events.
