Prime News, State (Bengaluru), October 24:- Actor Sanjjanaa Galrani has once again lashed out at director Ravi Srivastava after he asked her to apologise before Friday for her #MeToo allegation against him. On October 17, the actor had named Ravi for allegedly forcing her to act in scenes that she was not comfortable doing in her debut 2006 film Ganda Hendathi on Facebook. She also alleged that she was told that there will only be one kissing scene before signing the film but was later made to act in multiple such scenes.
A week after, Ravi Srivastava on Friday, accused Sanjjanaa of making the allegation for “publicity”. He claimed that he did not make the movie for the kissing scenes and that there were many veterans including journalist Ravi Belagere in the movie. He also claimed that the actor has reached her current position now because of that film.
“I completely deny all allegations made by Sanjjana. She acted in my movie and shot to fame. Now she is making allegations against me for publicity. I am giving her time till I pm on Friday to apologise. I have proof of what she did and I will release that accordingly. I had also informed her since the beginning that it was a remake of Murder and she had agreed,” Ravi told reporters.
He added, “She spoke about how her father walked away in shame after watching the film. If it was so, why did he not call me up and ask me why I had cast his daughter in such a role and why I made her do those scenes? I did not want to make a sex film. I wanted to make a family film,” he said. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
