Malayalam Actress Neha Saxena Opens Up About Getting Assaulted On The Sets Of A Tamil Film

Malayalam actress Neha Saxena has proved her mettle as a performer with his act in Kasaba and Sakhavinte Priyasakhi. The actress is back in the news after she filed a complaint at a Bengaluru police station. In her complaint, she said that she was physically assaulted on the sets of a Tamil movie, which was directed by a Keralite. She started shooting for the film on August 20 and had to face many warnings from the team.

 
In an interview with The Times of India, Neha said, "The director’s son, a debutant is playing the lead role in the movie. They had approached me, requested to portray the character as a ‘help’ as none other established actor would do the role, opposite any newbie. I was promised a role opposite Prakash Raj/ Nasser M, and as they are also acquainted with me, and the pandemic situation has affected all of us, I agreed to do the film. I took an advance token of Rs. 50, 000 and signed the contract. On the first day of the shoot, I felt the sets were a bit odd, as the people and the certain activities happening there weren’t supposed to be and I felt uncomfortable. Two days later, I spoke with the director and expressed that I am not comfortable working in that atmosphere. The script wasn’t satisfactory, as I had already said no to some ‘unwanted’ intimate scenes and the way my character was getting shaped wasn’t passable. The director started to scare me, told me that the producer has connections with the mafias and they have a torture room in the casino they own, where they can get me tortured, raped, or even shoot me down. I even told him that I am willing to give back the advance.”
