As per latest reports, Mumbai police is recording the statements of everyone who was present on the sets at the time of the incident. Daisy Shah‘s name has come to the forefront as she was the assistant director of choreographer, Ganesh Acharya when the film was being shot.
We will record statements of everyone present on the sets when the alleged incident took place. Shah has been asked to record her statement at the police station whenever she is comfortable, within a week or two.
I was just an assistant choreographer who knew nothing about what all was happening. I have nothing to say about it. My job over there was only to teach steps. I wasn’t the part of the internal conversation of what was happening and not happening. I was just like a random person who was shooting on that film.
We sincerely hope that the Mumbai police announces a verdict soon enough. This particular incident shouldn’t be brushed under the carpet, like so many other cases in our country.
