MUMBAI Police has filed an FIR of sexual harassment against Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah producer Asit Modi, executive producer Jatin Bajaj, operation head Sohail Ramani following a complaint from one of the show’s actors.
The FIR has been registered under sections 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
“The accused are the tele-serial producer Asit Modi, executive producer Jatin Bajaj and Operations Head Sohail Ramani. We have filed a FIR and invoked IPC Sec. 354A, 509, etc,” an officer of Powai Police Station told IANS.

In an interaction with ETimes, the actor said, “He has accused me of fighting with other members of the show in an inebriated state. I would indulge in fights that would go out of control and it would happen mostly on outdoor shoots. He also accused me of behaving in an inappropriate manner with the male members of the cast and crew thereby creating a hostile environment on the sets… The allegations are untrue and they took so much time I feel to fabricate things against me. He has replied to his own committee ICC and sent the letter to collector, DCP, and senior inspector (Powai). I will prove each and everything in court because I have all the proofs recordings. I am waiting to hear from the cops but there is no movement in the case all this while.”

“Powai Police recorded the statement of the actor in connection with her sexual harassment allegations against Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s producer Asit Kumarr Modi and two other members of the crew. The Police will also summon Asit Kumarr Modi soon for his statement,” Mumbai Police had earlier said.

However, Asit Modi has denied the allegations and referred to them as ‘baseless’. He had earlier said he will take legal action against the actress. “We will take legal action as she is trying to defame me and the show both. Since we terminated her services, she is making these baseless allegations,” he said.
