Recently, actor vijay raaz was arrested by Gondia police from a hotel for allegedly molesting a woman crew member on the sets of Vidya Balan movie ‘Sherni’. As per reports, he was granted bail on the same day of his arrest.
A crew member of the film revealed about the incident on conditions of anonymity. The crew member told Mid-Day that the incident happened in the full view of 30 people present on the sets. “She was sitting when Vijay yanked her arm to call for her attention. She lost her temper as this is no way to behave with a female colleague at a workplace. That said, we can vouch that Vijay did not molest her. The director [Amit Masurkar] and the producers immediately stepped in to understand the situation and encouraged her to file an official complaint with the studio, Abundantia Entertainment, “ the crew member said.
The crew member added, “On his part, Vijay understood that his action was uncalled for and promptly apologised to her, but she was inconsolable.”
The shoot was suspended for the day and the woman filed the complaint. A source close from the sets and a friend of the complainant revealed that this was the 4th time, Vijay was rude to her on the sets. The source said, “Harassment manifests in many forms, and this is also a kind of harassment. Why would a senior actor take the liberty to touch a woman on a set? I don’t know if he meant to behave badly or not, but he eventually did.”
