The actress of Sunil Rawal’s only flop film ‘Sayaad 2’, Sharon Shrestha has accused the producer of sexual harassment during shooting of the movie.
Some of Sharon’s accusations:
- Sunil Rawal was very touchy. He used to touch the actresses, touch their hands and tried to hug them.
- He forced them to drink wine in his birthday in Pokhara during the shooting of ‘Saayad 2’.
- Sunil held and carried two ‘Saayad 2’ actresses during the birthday celebration.
- Sunil used to whisper in ear and kiss her in the ear.
- Sunil had proposed her to be his girlfriend. In return, he promised to help her become the air hostess at Simrik Air.
But, after that, Sharon and Sunil Rawal reached in an undisclosed agreement and have agreed not to talk about the issue anymore. In the agreement, neither of the party have told anything about the things they had told in the past.
Does that mean, Sharon was true in all of her statement?
The first look poster of upcoming Rekha Thapa movie, ‘Rudrapriya’ was released recently. In all the posters of the movie, half portion of actress Rekha Thapa is hidden by the hem of her Saree.
The poster of the movie made under Rekha Films banner is different from the posters of previous Rekha Films banner movies. The colour and the presentation style is quite different. There is a possibility that the different looks is becasue of the director, Sudip Bhupal Singh and his concept.
