Filmmaker Akash Pandey on Thursday filed a complaint against actress and mafia don Abu Salem’s ex-girlfriend Monika Bedi accusing her of harassing him by sending threatening SMSes for the last one month.
In 2011, Akash Pandey directed a film titled ‘Parichay’ featuring Nepali superstar Nikhil Upreti and Monika Bedi. The film was released in Nepal last month turned out to be a hit. As per the contract, Monika Bedi was paid a remuneration of Rs 5 lakh long back and the makers had promised to give an additional Rs 5 lakh to her, if the film releases in India.
Though the film has not yet been released in India, Monika Bedi is now demanding for the additional Rs 5 lakh. As per the contract, she is eligible for that money only after the film hits the screens here. The director tried to convince her, but it didn’t work. Monika started sending SMSes like “You guys have to pay now, otherwise I will see You.”
The makers were terrified with the developments, knowing the fact that Monika has links with the underworld in the past.
When contacted, Monika Bedi denied sending threatening SMSes to the filmmaker and also said that she is not aware of any complaint registered against her.
