EXCLUSIVE: Tina Datta REACTS to reports of Daayan costar Mohit Malhotra allegedly touching her inappropriately
Tina Dutta has finally opened up on reports which suggested that Daayan co-star Mohit Malhotra had been inappropriately touching her whilst doing a scene on sets. Read on.
Tinaa Dattaa, who has been a popular name on Television, especially with her stint as Icchki in Uttaran, made headlines today after reports suggested that she was inappropriately touched by Daayan co-star Mohit Malhotra on sets. The actress reportedly was spotted sobbing on sets post the incident while the actor continued to take a stroll without any regrets. The incident of misbehaviour is apparently been happening for some time now BUT this time things went overboard. Many on social media went on to call the reports fake and became advocate of "all is well" between the two.
According to the report in Mid-day, not just Tinaa, even the team feels that Mohit goes a little overboard with scenes that require intimacy. In fact, a source confirmed to us that despite several warnings given, Mohit did not bother to pay heed and continued with his behaviour which made Tinaa feel very uncomfortable. "She finally broke down the other day because of this," the source revealed. Amid speculations and one sided denials, Tinaa has FINALLY decided to react to the reports to put the record straight.
Confirming the reports, Tinaa in a statement told PINKVILLA, "When we shoot a tv show there are lot of problems, big / small / ugly ... I have raised my issues (related to Mohit) with the production team and they have been very supportive. I am thrilled to work with balaji after many years. I leave the issues with them to sort .... thanks. (sic)" This certainly confirms that Tina indeed has been facing some discomfort working with Malhotra on sets.
Earlier, during the day when we reached out to Mohit for a comment, he instead of explaining on the report initially, sent out a yet to be televised joint statement of the two where he is seen speaking for the two, while Tinaa Dattaa stood uncomfortably. Later, he continued to be in denial and maintained that he and Tinaa share a good bond and that such things never happened. "She is my good friend and we share a cordial relationship," he said. When asked about intimate scenes in particular, the actor claimed that there have hardly been any intimate scenes shot between the duo.
Well, we hope the production is able to do justice with the case and truth prevails.
