We had reported earlier about Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan actor Parth Samthaan, who accused his mentor Vikas Gupta of molestation. Recently, ex-Bigg Boss contestant and the Balika Vadhu actress Pratyusha Banerjee had filed a molestation complaint against (fake) cops, and now, another ex-Bigg Boss contestant has become the victim of molestation!
According to a leading daily, Ratan Rajput, who is shooting for the recently launched socio-mythological TV series Santoshi Maa, was molested on the sets by a unit hand!
An eyewitness was quoted by the leading daily, "Ratan was groped by a lightman during the shoot and she went up to the person in charge of production demanding strict action against him. But they didn't heed her plea. She then put her foot down and refused to shoot until the production house took appropriate action. Eventually, they sacked the lightman and requested Ratan to resume shoot."
According to the source, the issue was not resolved immediately, as the production house didn't bother to take immediate action. It was only after a few days that they fired the lightman. It is also said that Ratan and the production house are asked not to talk about the issue as they feel it would be blown out of proportion.
While Ratan remained mum on the issue, the producer of the show, Rashmi Sharma denied anything of this sort has happened. Rashmi calls it a 'fraud story'!
Well, if they didn't want the issue to be out, how is it out now, and that too immediately after Pratyusha's case (also according to the source, it has to be noted that the incident happened few days back)? Is this a publicity stunt?
