Scarlett Wilson who featured in the song “Manohari” in ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ (2015), defended herself when she was allegedly subjected to harassment by Umakant Rai on the sets of her upcoming film, ‘Hansa – Ek Sanyog’.
According to Bollywood Life, Wilson who was performing an item song in the film had been on the receiving end of crude gestures from Rai. When Rai attempted to touch her hair this was the last straw for Wilson, she turned around and slapped him.
Crew members confirmed the incident to news reporters and said after Wilson slapped Rai she stormed out of the shoot and Rai was then thrown off the sets. ‘Hansa – Ek Sanyog’ producer, Suresh Sharma has said he will be filing a complaint to the Film Federation of India, and get Rai to apologise. And if that doesn’t work there will be an attempt to revoke Rai’s acting licence. It hasn’t been confirmed as of yet whether a police complaint has been filed.
Wilson who is married to former ‘Bigg Boss’ contestant and actor Pravesh Rana, will next be seen in the Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Gold’.
