Lajmi alleges misconduct by Rajiv Kashyap
Noted film director Kalpana Lajmi has charged 'Kaanch' movie producer Rajiv Kashyap with sending her obscene SMS and misbehaviour.
Lajmi, who had been shooting for 'Kaanch' here since some time, stalled the shooting and said she would not continue with the movie any further.
"I am not going to work again with Kashyap nor will I direct his film any more," she said here last evening. She said she was being forced to leave the film because of the "misbehaviour of Kashyap". However, Kashyap refuted the allegation and said on the contrary, Kalpana had been indulging in "offensive behaviour" and even threatened to take her to court.
On Kalpana's charge that he had been sending her obscene SMS on cellphone, Kashyap said she had "lost her mental balance" and she needed proper treatment for it. The producer said he will return to Bhopal in September and resume the film's shooting with a new director.
'Kaanch' stars Avika Gor, who rose to fame for her role in popular television serial 'Balika Vadhu,' along with noted singer-actress Ila Arun and Yograj Singh. PTI
