Mohit Malhotra denies Tinaa Dattaa's allegations of inappropriately touching her on Daayan sets. Ekta Kapoor holds meeting with the duo.
Tinaa Dattaa of Daayan fame has accused co-star Mohit Malhotra of inappropriately touching her while performing scenes on the sets. After various speculations and reports, the actress went on record to claim the misconduct and said that she has raised the issue with the production team, and it is now on them to take the appropriate action. Amidst reports suggesting that the show might be pulled off air, media reports suggest that producer Ekta Kapoor held a meeting with the two following the allegations.
A detailed response from the channel is awaited today but we do wait to hear from the production themselves given the sensitivity of the issue. Meanwhile, Mohit has denied the allegations saying that when they perform a particular scene, it is in front of several people, and added that if she felt uncomfortable, she should have told him. "I don't understand where is this coming from. After saying, nothing happened, now she has gone back to giving contrary statements. If she was uncomfortable, why didn't she tell me?" he said.
However, Tinaa has claimed to have warned him a couple of times about the misbehaviour. In a statement to us, she said, "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)"
