In a shocking revelation, earlier today, Choreographer Ganesh Acharya has been accused by a 33-year-old woman choreographer, of forcing her to watch ‘adult films’ and share a portion of her income with the said artist as a ‘commission’.
The complaint filed with Maharashtra Women’s Commission and Amboli Police Station alleges harassment by Ganesh Acharya since the time he became the General Secretary of the Indian Film and Television Choreographers Association (IFTCA), where the complainant works as a choreographer, too.
This is not the first time, however, that an accusation of such nature has been made against the senior choreographer. Actress Tanushree Dutta, had earlier accused Acharya of spreading “malicious rumours” about her in an attempt to sabotage her reputation. The duo had worked together in the film Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss in 2009.
Senior choreographer Saroj Khan had also, in the past, accused Ganesh Acharya of ‘exploiting’ his dancers.
Talking to a news portal, the choreographer stated that Saroj Khan is conspiring against him. “This is the conspiracy against me to malign my image, there are people like Saroj Khan and her colleagues who are doing corruption in the industry. Their business has flopped as I have entered the association. I will file a defamation case against Saroj Khan and her team who are defaming me and stooping so low to do that, they are doing this because their business has gone in vain they used to earn money sitting at home illegally and I am against it so will put all my efforts to fight against them.” Watch this space for more.
