Rakhi Sawant once again found herself embroiled in an ugly spat thanks to her best friend, Manisha Kumari, who accused Sachendra Sharma, the director of Mumbai Can Dance Saalaa that stars Rakhi Sawant, for molestation and casting couch.
Manisha Kumari, recently grabbed all the eyeballs when she slapped Sachendra Sharma on stage during the music launch of Mumbai Can Dance Saalaa.
Manisha Kumari accused Sachendra Sharma for promising her a role in his movie if she was willing to compromise. She went on stage to accuse the director and slapped him when Rakhi Sawant and Sachendra Sharma were busy launching the music of their film.
Sachendra Sharma responded by beating up Manisha on stage which created a chaos at the event.
“About a month ago, Sachendra Sharma told me that he would give me an item song if I slept with him. I declined his advances. Last night, when I went there to support Rakhi, I came across him again. He touched me inappropriately and said I should have not declined his offer.” stated Manish Kumari post the spat.
Meanwhile, Rakhi Sawant, who has done an item song in the movie, has come forward in support of her best friend and has alleged that the director misbehaved with her after being slapped.
“She is my best friend. You all were present there and you all know what happened. We have come to the police station as she has been molested on stage.” stated Rakhi Sawant.
