A veteran Bollywood actress has filed a rape complaint against a businessman in Mumbai. The 66-year-old actress registered the complaint with the Mumbai Police at the Juhu police station. The case was eventually transferred to the Mumbai Police's Crime Branch, which investigates serious crimes. According to news agency ANI, the accused businessman was arrested on Thursday night. He will be produced in court on Friday, March 23 and an investigation is underway.
The actress had earlier approached the cops in January alleging that she was molested and stalked by a Mumbai-based businessman. However, it remains unclear as of now whether the rape complaint filed last night is against the same businessman who was earlier accused of molesting and stalking the ace actress.
On a related note, another veteran actress Daisy Irani, who starred as a child artiste in films like Boot Polish, Jagte Raho and Naya Daur, recently told Mumbai Mirror that she was raped during an outdoor shoot (Hum Panchhi Ek Dal Ke) in Madras by her mother-entrusted ‘guardian’. The actress was merely six-years-old at that time. 60 years later, Daisy Irani can only recall the incident in flashes, but clearly remembers the pain, and the visual of him belting her.
