Shiney, who made a name for himself in B-town with films like Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi and Gangster, was sentenced to seven years in prison by a Mumbai fast track court for raping his maid in 2009. The actor is currently out on bail after he challenged the sentence in the Bombay High Court.

He is now making a comeback in Bollywood with Bharat Shah's horror film Ghost after a gap of three years.

ShineyOn whether he would be able to score again with film-makers he said, "I don't know if anybody will call me...may be somebody will. I am waiting for the film to release. I would approach people whom I am in touch with like Sudhir Mishra, Anurag Basu and few others and love to work with them," Shiney told PTI.

"From the industry everybody I have worked with who knew me, stood by me like Anurag, Sudhir and now Bharat Shah. I don't know what would have happened if I did not had this film," he said.

Ghost would see Shiney share screen space with actress Sayali Bhagat. The film made by producer-turned director Puja Jatinder Bedi, hits cinema houses today.

There were reports stating that even director Puja and co-actress Sayali made allegations of sexual harassment against Shiney. However, Sayali later clarified that nothing of that sort happened.

"Initially...I couldn't explain or express my reaction. More than my reaction I was just praying to God that does not come in print tomorrow. If it comes in print, I thought I would get up early..my dad goes for walk he is a 60-year-old. If he reads it I don't know how much more he could take. I was very very worried about him," Shiney said.
