Another shocking #MeToo story has come up as the filmmaker Luv Ranjan has been accused of se*ual misconduct. An actress has alleged that the director, who is famous for films like Pyar Ka Punchnama and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, had asked her to strip during an audition.
Talking to Mid Day, she said, “The director, Luv Ranjan, and the cinematographer were sitting in a room and calling the girls in one by one. The girl who went in before me came out with an ashen look and seemed uncomfortable. She hurriedly left. Then I went in. The room was properly lit for an audition and there was a proper camera set up, etc. They asked me to give an introduction, which was totally normal, totally legitimate.”
The director told her there was a kissing scene and bikini scene in the movie and asked if she was fine with that, to which she said yes. He said he wanted to see what she would look like in a bikini.
She added on saying, “Luv asked me to strip down to my bra and panties. He said he wanted to see my body so he could check if I needed to lose weight. He said they were not recording anything and the cinematographer would also leave the room, so I needn’t worry. After that, it all gets blurry. My heart was pounding and I rushed out saying I had to leave, and wasn’t comfortable with it. I went home and tried to forget about it.”
She narrated how Luv told her that she needs to draw from her experiences and when she can’t, he need to know her so well, that he can help her. “He asked me about my schooling and family, so I relaxed. Then he asked me if I had a boyfriend, to which I said yes. Then he asked, “Are you a virgin?” I was shocked. He said, “Arrey, we can talk like this, we’re adults.”,” added the actress.
He even asked her if she used condoms and if she masturbates. “By then, I was scared and asked if I could leave. He said I shouldn’t misunderstand him, and called the three guys into the room and asked them, “Do you trust me enough as a director, that if I were to ask you to drop your pants, you would?”
However, when contacted by the tabloid, the filmmaker has denied all such allegations on him!
