The year 2018 saw many good as well as bad things. Besides weddings, the other trending thing in 2018 – especially in Bollywood – was the #MeToo movement.
It all started when Tanushree Dutta said Nana Patekar harassed her on the sets of Horn Ok Pleasss. After that, many women shared their horrifying stories on social media.
And now as 2019 has just started, a shocking news has come into the limelight. According to a report by a leading portal, Mumbai sessions court has given life term to Ravindranath Ghosh, a casting director, for harassing and raping an aspiring model and actress.
Shocking right? So this is what happened….
The actress said that she had met Ghosh in 2011 where he introduced himself as a casting director and a cameraman. He also told her that he was producing a TV series. Then, he referred her name for an audition for a TV show and in return asked for sexual favours.
The victim started to ignore his calls and when she called him back after 2 weeks, he called her at Madh Island in February 2012. He raped her at a lodge and took nude photos of her and blackmailed her to maintain a sexual relationship with him or else he would send those photos to her husband.
All of this continued till March 2012. She changed her job to avoid any contact with Ghosh. In December 2012, he went to her house and asked for Rs 1 lakh for ending their relationship. She told him that she is pregnant and changed her number. Ghosh was unable to contact her and to seek revenge, he sent her nude pictures to her husband. The actress’ husband left her and their newborn baby after receiving those photos from the casting agent.
In December 2013, Ghosh was arrested by the police after she registered a complaint and now the Mumbai session court has given him life imprisonment with a fine of Rs 1.31 lakh.
Serves him right… It is so bad that people in the industry misuse their power in such a way…
All we can say is Guys and Girls Just Be Careful..
