Ex- Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai actor, Shilpa Shinde caused a stir when filed a sexual harassment complaint against Sanjay Kohli, the producer of popular TV show. FIR actor, Kavita Kaushik slammed Shilpa for talking about the incident after a year.
Shilpa, in her defence, said that it is not easy to talk about such things. The actress said, “Jitne muh utni baatein. People feel I am doing all this for the money or something else.”
Shilpa reacted on it saying that if anyone else had been on her position, he would have committed suicide. The actress stated that people think that she did this for money but everybody had different experiences. She added that it was not easy to talk about harassment as people suggest that one should keep quiet on the issue. Hinting at Kavita, Shilpa said that whoever felt that she set a bad example by staying quiet is right as she should not have waited for a year.
Shilpa also added that last year when she had quit the show, she had accused the Kohlis (Sanjay and his wife Benaifer, the producers of the show) of mental harassment. She is still fighting for her unpaid dues amounting to Rs 32 lakhs. While they in turn have slapped Shilpa with a case for losses incurred for Rs 12.5 crores by them.
On this issue, Shilpa said, “What happened to me should never happen to anyone. You (Kohlis) have defamed me, ruined my career and name, put me through hell and now are asking for Rs 12.5 crores. I had a bitter experience and it is unprecedented. No one wants to quit a popular show and I had reached a certain level in my career. I am fighting for a lot of things, including my stuff that I left on the sets.” “They are flourishing while I am the one who is suffering,” she adds.
