Mahima Chaudhary who is known for her memorable role of Ganga in Pardes made some serious accusations on the director of that film Subhash Ghai. She revealed about the time when was ‘bullied’ by the veteran director.
Now, Subhash Ghai has reacted to the statements made by Mahima Chaudhary. He says he is ‘amused’ by the comments and is still on good terms with Mahima. Let’s take a look at where this all started.
In a report published by Bollywood Hungama, Mahima Chaudhary said, “I was bullied by Mr Subhash Ghai. He even took me to the court and wanted me to cancel my first show. It was quite stressful. He sent a message to all the producers that nobody should work with me!”
Here’s what Subash Ghai has to say about the same, “I am amused by reading this news. Mahima & I are very good friends till date and are still in touch through messages. She is a very nice and mature woman of today. She recently shared on how she gets welcomed at every event with a song from Pardes ‘I Love My India’ even after 23 years. Yes, there was a small conflict in 1997 post the release of Pardes, which became a big blockbuster and for which she even got the Filmfare award for best actor. My company did send her a show-cause notice for flouting a clause in our agreement. Media & industry reacted in a big way and so I withdrew and cancelled her contract with Mukta Arts.”
He also adds, “After 3 years she came to me with her family and apologised for her impulsive reaction. I forgave her and thereafter we became friends again. She is a jovial, good person I trust. She must be right in feeling that she was bullied when asked by someone. Actually, I admire her great gesture when she did a guest appearance in a song in my last film Kanchi in 2015. I guess we do get entertained with the smallest of an old tiff which is normal in the course of life in show-biz.”
If Subash Ghai says he’s amused by the news, what made Mahima Chaudhary reveal those things now? It’s yet to be seen if Mahima has any reaction to the same. Stick to this space for further updates.
