Shilpa Shinde files FIR in Waliv against Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai’s producer Sanjay Kohli, accusing him of sexual harassment.
Shinde was booted out of the popular &TV show Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hian, where she played a lead character of Angoori Bhabi.
The producers had alleged that she had quit to join the Kapil Sharma’s programme, scheduled to be launched on Sony TV later this week.
In her complaint, Shinde alleges that Kohli once tried to touch her inappropriately and eve sought sexual favour failing which she will be thrown out of the show.
However, a source close to Kohli has rejected her allegation outright.
“For one year, she (Shilpa) has not mentioned this anywhere. In fact, in November 2016, she even came on the sets of the show with a box of chocolates for Binaifer Kohli (Sanjay’s wife and the show’s producer). Why would you do that to someone when her husband has molested you?,” Hindustan Times quoted the source.
The makers of the &TV show Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain, had approached the Cine and TV Artists’ Association, which summoned her to appear before the body.
But, Shinde didn’t turn up at the date angering the members of the CINTAA, which then slapped life ban against the actor.
