According to a source, ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ actress Deepika Singh has slapped her co-star Anas Rashid after he misbehaved with her during the shoot on Monday evening in Mumbai.
“She was furious with the way he misbehaved with her and slapped him. The director tried to intervene and got hurt,” says the source. “Anas was unapologetic about his behaviour, which irritated the actress. She does not tolerate any kind of misbehaviour from any man,” the source added.
Anas and Deepika have been working on the show for over four years now, but don’t talk to each other. Popularly known as Sandhya Rathi, the character from the serial, Deepika told her friends that if the actor misbehaves again she’ll walk out of the show. While Deepika refused to comment on the incident, she messaged, “I am very upset and would not like to comment on it.”
While Neelu Vaghela, who plays Bhabho in the show, said, “I really don’t know about it as I was in the makeup room.”
Anas has sent a letter to Cine And TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA) that he has concerns as he feels that Deepika is capable of making another allegation. CINTAA spokesperson Gajendra Chauhan said, “I am out of town will look into after I get back.”
