Actor and model Kate Sharma has filed a molestation complaint against Bollywood filmmaker Subhash Ghai at the Versova police station in Mumbai on Saturday. Ms Sharma alleged that the filmmaker tried to forcibly kiss and hug her when he had called her to his house. After the complaint, Mr Ghai tweeted that his “lawyers will take care of it.”
“He called me to his house on August 6. There were about five to six people at his house and in front of everybody, he asked me to give him a massage. It was shocking for me but I respected his seniority and agreed. I massaged him for two to three minutes and then went to the washroom to wash my hands. He followed me there. He then took me to his room saying that he wanted to talk to me about something. He grabbed me and tried to kiss and hug me,” Ms Sharma said in her complaint.
“I told him that I wanted to leave but he threatened me and said that he will not launch me if I do not stay with him for the night,” alleged the Ms Sharma.
Hours after the complaint was filed by Ms Sharma, Mr Ghai tweeted, “I am surely a great supporter of #MeToo movement and women empowerment but hope that those taking undue advantage of the movement do not end up diluting it for their own short time fame. I feel grief if someone is trying to harm my reputation. Any way my lawyers will take care of matter.”
Mr Ghai is one of the biggest names in Bollywood to be called out by women for sexual harassment. He was accused of rape by an anonymous woman on social media last week. In the post, the woman had accused him of spiking her drink and raping her.
The 73-year-old director and producer strongly denied the allegations made against him after his name cropped up in the #MeToo movement. “It is sad that it is becoming a fashion to malign anyone known, bringing some stories from past without any truth or blown up false allegations if at all. I deny strictly and firmly all false allegations like these,” Mr Ghai told news agency PTI.
Apart from Subhash Ghai, India’s #MeToo movement has witnessed celebrities like Alok Nath, Nana Patekar, Kailash Kher, Rajat Kapoor, Sajid Khan and Vikas Bahl, among others, outed as alleged sexual predators.

Speaking to IndiaScoops.com, she said: “Why did Aneesha Singh Sharma wait for Bigg Boss 12 to start, to make allegations against him (Anup Jalota). Having said this, I am not taking any sides. We need to hear his side of the story. We have heard her, we need to hear what he has to say,” Kamya said.

She has also claimed that the Bhajan guru and his student had discussed about revealing the status of their relationship on the first day of the show. According to her interview with IndiaScoops.com, Jasleen was not in favor of spilling the beans on the first day. She wanted to show the world that the two found love on the show, after being locked up in the Bigg Boss house for weeks together. But the makers of the show had other plans. Read the full story here.
Model and aspiring singer Aneesha Singh Sharma has revealed that Bhajan King Anup Jalota and his so-called girl-friend or lady-love singer Jasleen Matharu are faking their relationship for Bigg Boss, after the makers of the show insisted on the two announcing their ‘affair’ right at the start.
In an exclusive interview to IndiaScoops.com, Aneesha revealed that she was present on two occasions when the discussion took place between the Bhajan King and Matharu.
“The makers of the show had a condition that the duo would be introduced as lovers. This was to increase the TRPs of the first few episodes, as the other contestants lacked mass appeal. There were heated arguments between the two, as both of them had differing views on the subject. While discussing the pros and cons of going public over their unconventional relationship, Jasleen was of the view that they should not disclose their relationship initially and only introduce themselves as ‘guru’ and ‘student’,” she told IndiaScoops.com.
According to Aneesha, “after a couple of weeks, they would pretend that they found love, while on the show and got close after been locked up in the Bigg Boss house. It would be a perfect alibi and excuse for their relationship and Jasleen was of the opinion that the duo would not face any negativity or backlash from the conservationists. But the channel was not convinced. Finally it was decided that both of them would throw caution to the winds and openly declare their love for each other on the show,” Aneesha revealed to IndiaScoops.com.
Meanwhile, Aneesha has alleged Jalota threatened to kill her if she went to the cops about their relationship. She has submitted a written complaint through her lawyer to the cops. The police are investigating the matter and have sent letters to Jalota’s residence and even to the Bigg Boss house, asking the Bhajan maestro to join the investigation and appear before the investigating officer in person to record his statement (Read Here).

It appears to be the season of love. While the whole entertainment industry is going berserk over Priyanka Chopra and international star Nick Jonas’ alleged relationship, there’s another less discussed but blossoming love story.
The talented Lauren Gottlieb, who won hearts with her dancing skills all across the globe, has lost her own heart. Ostensibly, the international dancing sensation, who was a participant in So You Think You Can Dance, has found love!
The 30-year-old artist made her acting debut in India with ABCD. Rumours have it that the Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa contestant has fallen heads over heels in love with a filmmaker named Benjamin.
The relationship seems to be at an embryonic stage.
The actress shared a picture with her alleged boyfriend. The caption validated the conjecture: ‘It is in your love, I have learnt how to truly be free. Soshinie A.’ Singh @ohheyitsbenj @andypatch
When TellyChakkar dug deep for more information, we found a picture on Benjamin’s profile. Although a silhouette, one can easily make out that the picture is of Lauren and Benjamin.
Interestingly, on the same picture, Gottlieb confirmed being in love Benjamin. She commented, ‘I Love you’.
The alleged lovebirds indeed look breathtaking and much in love in their pictures.
Actress Toral Rasputra of Balika Vadhu fame says the television viewers have become smarter and genres like supernatural and mythological have a defined audience.
“As television shows are progressing, the audience is also evolving. Audiences have become smarter and watch exactly what they want to. It may be a supernatural, mythological or historical show, every genre has a defined audience,” said Toral.
“I believe it’s not about the trends but the concepts of the shows that drive their audience. Viewers are more attracted to a concept on which a show is based. My earlier show Balika Vadhu was also a concept-based show, which was completely different from the typical saas-bahu dramas,” she added.
Being an actor, she feels the need to fit into different kinds of roles.
“Currently I am occupied with Mere Sai, but in the near future, I would definitely love to work in a historical show as well. Also, I believe in God and I am a religious person,” she said.
Toral essays the role of Baija in the Sony Entertainment Television show Mere Sai.
Star Plus’ Ishqbaaaz has recently gone back in time that will offer a new twist to the show. The lead couple Anika (Surbhi Chandna) and Shivaay’s (Nakuul Mehta) love-story will be projected with a new beginning, unlike the way they actually met.
Producer Gul Khan loves to experiment, and this clearly depicted in the ongoing track of Ishqbaaaz. But the biggest question is will it work or not? Will it be accepted by the ardent viewers of Ishqbaaaz?
To get our answers we got in touch with our in-house tarot card readers’ brother-sister duo Shreyans Vimal Bhojak and Divya Chintan Dave and here’s what they have predicted the fate of the new beginning.
“Ishqbaaaz has got the Card of The Sun which means that the new rewind concept that has been introduced for the first time in Indian television will create an impact and will be a great success for the show. The storyline will be executed with proper plan and perfection.
Producer Gul Khan has got the Card of Four of Cups that signifies Gul is an intelligent woman with a powerful vision, but for now, avoiding distraction is a bliss for her. While her experiences and openness to new experiments will offer a positive outcome.
Nakuul Mehta has got the Card of The Hanged Man that represents associated delays, postponements and the freezing of time. The best thing you can do is wait. Temporary put –off your plans and don’t try to force things in any way. Just go with the flow and that will lead to success. He is currently experiencing a sense of doubts and anxiety within himself, but his positive faith with peaceful expression will lead him to his goals anyway “just go with the flow.
Surbhi Chandna has got the Card of Knight of Cups, which indicates that she is a versatile actor and will rule in hearts of her fans with her creative performances at every stage. Adding to this she does not hesitate to learn things from others.”
Love works in mysterious ways. But what happens when the mystery is heightened? MTV’s brand new dating reality show Dating in the Dark has been serving some major food for thought along with a fun take on dating. It seems few contestants have got lucky with the show.
Haneet Narang, who was previously seen fighting for love on Splitsvilla Season 10, was back to try his luck where the heart was concerned and actually ended up emerging a winner. Not only did he find a great connection, but also an extremely gorgeous love interest who isn’t even from India! Trying her luck in the matters of the heart was a gorgeous French beauty Esmeralda Laurent who came to India all the way from Russia! Esmeralda, who is no stranger to reality television, having formerly been a contestant on Big Brother Russia, was keen to be on the show to meet new people. Having lived in India for some time now, Esmeralda is a fashion designer and was looking forward to meet someone interesting on the show. The duo now has started living in together in Mumbai. Narang, who is Delhi based munda, is now shifting to Mumbai for his lady love.
When we contacted, he said, “The experience has been amazing participating on the show. I found someone whom I connect and falling in love with him, everyday. To many, it may look unrealistic but fate has its own way to bless and we couldn’t be happier. I found love on a reality show!”
