Shweta Basu Prasad, who was arrested for involvement in a sex racket few weeks back, has finally moved on from the incident as the actress has joined Phantom Production House as a script consultant.
It is to be known that Madhu Mantena, Anurag Kashyap, Vikas Bahl and Vikramaditya Motwani are the helmers at Phantom Production House.
Basu Prasad told Mid-Day, “Yes, I am a script consultant at Phantom. I am essentially a curator there, assigned the job of going through potentially promising scripts. It’s a job I like doing as it is helping me to grow as an actor when I read the scripts.”
Basu Prasad, however, says that she will keep working here till she restores her acting career. She also rubbished the reports suggesting that she has been roped in by Hansal Mehta. “I came across a report that I had been signed for a documentary by Mr. Mehta. How can I play a role in a documentary? The person who wrote this obviously has no clue what he was talking about,” laughs Basu Prasad.
Though, she admitted that she met Hansal Mehta to show him her documentary. “I’ve made a documentary entitled Roots on Hindustani classical music. I took it to show it to Mr. Hansal Mehta. His son Jay was also there in his office. They seemed to like my effort. Beyond that there is nothing. Mr Mehta has not offered me a role,” she said.
Adds Hansal Mehta, “Shweta’s documentary on Hindustani classical music which I saw, is proof of her talent. I am most certainly going to work with her. But I haven’t decided on the project.”
