She alleged that her make-up man saw this happening, after which he was fired.

However, sources close to Kohli refute these allegations. “For one year, she (Shilpa) has not mentioned this anywhere. In fact, in November 2016, she even came on the sets of the show with a box of chocolates forBinaifer Kohli (Sanjay’s wife and the show’s producer). Why would you do that to someone when her husband has molested you?” says the source, adding that Shilpa’s make-up man was fired because he used to misbehave on the sets.
