In the month of May, Jennifer Mistry who had left the most popular sitcom ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ filed a complaint against the show’s producer Asit Modi, TMKOC Project Head Sohail Ramani and executive producer Jatin Bajaj as she faced sexual harassment at the set. They have been booked under sections 354 and 509 (Assault or criminal force to a woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Jennifer Mistry's Key Witness Is
And now months after claiming sexual harassment, Jennifer has now shared that the producer has influenced her key witness. In a recent interview, the actress said that Gurucharan Singh Sodhi – an actor who used to play the role of her husband was ready to talk as her witness in the court has now turned down. As Asit Modi suddenly called him into the office to clear all his pending dues.
By claiming the producer’s intentions, Jennifer Mistry said, “He (Gurucharan) knows all the things. Also, I would like to give the background that in May 2023, Gurucharan had himself called me and had assured me that he would be a witness for me in the court. He had categorically told me he would not comment in the media but he will come to the court to support.”
Adding further, “Suddenly, on June 9th when I went to meet him, he told me he was called to office on June 8th all of a sudden and all his outstanding dues which were pending since the last three and a half years were cleared. All the pending dues were cleared which were stuck. I realised then and there now he would not speak in my favour. I did not tell him anything, but he told me that he can be the neutral person between Asit Modi and me who can get us to sit across and discuss,” she said.
After insisting the police and also Sodhi asked her to sit and speak to Asit Modi for solving the matter face to face, she was ready to meet him and she concluded by saying, “Even the cops approached me for a meeting in the police station, initially I was reluctant but I agreed to it, but then there was no revert. In fact, they bought the time and falsely accused me of 10 other baseless things."
