Saumya Tandon denies any communication with Shilpa Shinde.

TV actor Shilpa Shinde, who played Angoori Bhabhi in Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai roughly one year ago, accused the show’s producer, Sanjay Kohli of sexually harassing her.

“Often, he would he pass remarks like, I like you a lot. You are very sexy. You are very hot,” she said. “And while saying such things, he would hug me forcefully and would touch my waist and breasts. I would resist but he would brush aside the incident saying, Oh, it was a mistake. Come on yeh sab toh chalta hai.”

Shinde also said that she had mentioned about such incidents to co-actor Saumya Tandon. “I spoke to Saumya also about this, but she was like, ‘Humari industry mein koi rape nai karta Shilpa’.”

However, Saumya Tandon has denied the allegation that Shinde spoke to her on the matter.

“I strongly stand against any kind of sexual harassment of women at work or any place. Having said that, there was absolutely no communication between Shilpa and me about this,” she told DNA.

“Personally, my interactions with my producer has been very professional and I didn’t face any problem. I can’t comment on Shilpa’s case as I am not aware about it,” she said.

Currently, Shubhangi Atre is playing Angoori Bhabhi on the show.
