Bollywood actress Deepti Naval is upset with media for publishing wrong information about an incident at her place. The actress took it to Facebook to express herself and wrote about the incident. She also urged the people to support her.
It all started when she was shooting for an interview with Rajiv Masand and his team in her Versova terrace flat. But her neighbours thought they were shooting a film in her apartment and threatened to call the police, “”Just before the release of ‘Listen Amaya’, Farooque Shaikh and I were doing an interview for Rajiv Masand in my Versova terrace flat. I had been keeping unwell those days and had requested Rajiv’s camera team to come over to my house instead of me having to go to his studio. Rajiv came over with his three camera setup and we were in the middle of this interview, when three members from the society barged into the flat and demanded that we stop this activity – they thought we were making a movie,” she posted on her Facebook page.
“I explained to them that they can sit here and watch we are not making a movie, we are doing an interview, but they threatened to call the police on me. Rajiv, Farooque, my director Avinash Singh and his wife Geeta were all very embarrassed hearing this sort of conversation. We tried to wind up fast.” “Then one neighbour Rajan Khurana was sent up to convey to me that the society has threatened to call the police if we don’t stop this activity right away. I explained again, but to no avail. After that I got a call from the secretary of the society who was very irked and repeated that they will call the police. We cancelled all other interviews after that. I was hugely embarrassed. I apologized to my colleagues and they quietly left,” adds she.
The actress felt humiliated and decided to shift to her Madh Island house and told a Journalist friend that the society treated her so badly and kept threatening her as if she was running a racket here.
Next morning the story about the fiasco was out with the sensational headline, ‘I’m not running a prostitution racket’. She further added that except for the scandalous headline there was nothing wrong with the contents of the article. But other papers picked up the same headline and implied that the society has accused me of running a prostitution racket.
She also added that “I was sitting there at my terrace flat Tuesday evening after Farooque and I had spent a whole day going to various radio stations giving fresh round of interviews before the re-release of the old”Chashme Buddoor” on April 5 – and I was looking around at my beautiful spacious home where I sit and dream, do all my writing work, invite friends, spend quality time with myself – and I was in tears – this sanctuary of mine to be called a prostitution den.”
“In my heart. I apologized to my father who is no more in this world,” she wrote.
It’s really sad to see that how some publications manipulate the information for publicity .
