Ganesh Acharya files a complaint against the assistant choreographer
Five days after a 33-year-old assistant choreographer filed an unrecognizable crime against the Bollywood choreographer Ganesh Acharya , who is also the secretary general of the Indian movie and the Association of Television Choreographers (IFTCA), for allegedly expelling her membership, depriving her of work, demanding a commission and forcing her to watch adult videos, Acharya has now filed a NC counter against her. The lady also approached the National Commission for Women a few days ago against Ganesh.
The accusations made by her
Talking about the issue, she said, “I started working as a coordinator for dancers in November 2019. However, because of certain issues in the past, Ganesh Acharya, who is the general secretary of IFTCA, used his position to expel me from the association and also directed other members to stop working with me, because I refused to give him commission. I am sitting at home unemployed since two months. That’s when I approached Sarojji (Khan), who assured me that they would investigate the matter at the Special General Assembly (SGM), which was held on Sunday. While I was sitting in the hall waiting to present my version of the story, Ganesh came out and started screaming. He said: Ye Yeh kya kar rahi hai yahaan par? Isko thappad aur laat maar kar baahar nikaalo. Two women attacked me following their instructions.
She added: In me complain to NCW, I have also stated that Ganesh, who would often be found watching adult videos every time I visited his office, forced me to watch them, too. I reprimanded him and told him that if he ever repeated it or called me, I would file a complain against him with the association and the police.”
Ganesh Acharya refutes her claims
BT spoke to Ganesh Acharya, who said, “She was part of a group of dancers I worked with in 2007. Apart from that, I don't know this girl at all. The accusations of assault in my presence and on my instructions are false, as I had left for a shoot before the altercation between her and the two others took place. ”
Regarding the accusations of expelling her because she didn’t agree to pay him a commission and forcing her to watch adult videos, he said, “The decision to expel a member is taken after everyone’s consent, and she was expelled owing to her crude and unflattering remarks on dance masters. I am against the practice of commission and don’t work with coordinators, so why will I demand commission from her? Disgruntled by the termination of her membership, she sent letters and notices to IFTCA and its members making false and frivolous allegations of not letting her work and harassing her. However, in these alleged complain s, there was no mention of her latest cooked-up story of porn videos being shown to her. Her accusations are false and baseless.”
Ganesh’s lawyer, Ravi Suryawanshi, said, “We have given a written complain to the Oshiwara Police on January 31 against her for defamation and filed an NC for the same. We have also lodged a complain at Amboli police station against her for filing a false complain . Ganesh Acharya will soon be initiating legal proceedings against her and her accomplices.”
