Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai actor Shilpa Shinde has filed an FIR against the show’s producer, Sanjay Kohli, accusing him of sexual harassment The FIR was filed at Walvi Naigaon police station near Mumbai on Thursday.
A copy of the FIR filed by Shilpa Shinde.
In the FIR, Shilpa has alleged that Sanjay often tried to take advantage of her.
The show made headlines last year when Shilpa objected to the exclusivity clause in her contract and accused the makers of mental torture. As a result, she even quit the show abruptly, following which the producers sued Shilpa for Rs 12.5 crore for the losses they had incurred because of her absence. According to sources, the production house owes Shilpa Rs 32 lakh.
In the FIR, Shilpa has alleged that Sanjay often tried to take advantage of her and called her hot and sexy. She said that he even touched her inappropriately once to which she objected with a firm no. Sanjay threatened her that he will throw her out of the show if she spoke to anyone about this. Next day, he again came to her make-up room and told her to get into a physical relationship with him if she wanted to stay on the show. She alleged that her make-up man saw this happening, after which he was fired.
However, sources close to Kohli refute these allegations. “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 forBinaifer Kohli (Sanjay’s wife and the show’s producer). Why would you do that to someone when her husband has molested you?” says the source, adding that Shilpa’s make-up man was fired because he used to misbehave on the sets.
Defending her husband, Binaifer says, “These are obviously false allegations. All I can say is that the matter is subjudice. I have faith in the legal system. I don’t want to give her (Shilpa) unnecessary attention.”
Shilpa was not available for comment.
