New Delhi:

'Daayan' actor Mohit Malhotra who was accused of sexual harassment by co-star Tinaa Datta dismissed all claims and counter charged the actress why she didn't tell him that she is uncomfortable.

The actor in an interview with Hindustan Times said,"If she was uncomfortable, why didn’t she tell me? We shoot on a set with 50 people watching us and everything is on camera. Nothing of this sort happened." 

He further added, “I don’t understand, where is this coming from? After saying nothing happened, now she has gone back to giving contrary statements. How can she keep changing her statements? I have been working in the TV industry for 11 years and have shot with many women and no one has ever had any issues with me. It has taken me a long time to reach this stage in my career.”

Tinaa who shot to fame with Uttaran accused co-star Mohit Malhotra of Splitsvilla fame of sexual harassment on Sunday. The actress said that Mohit tried to touch her inappropriately and made her feel uncomfortable while shooting intimate scenes for the show. She even released a statement that said that she has raised her issues (related to Mohit) with the production team and they have been supportive.

Now rumours are ripe that the makers are planning to shut down the show over growing differences between the lead pair and the dwindling TRPs.
