Dharma’s casting director exposed:
As per the reports, on 11 June Nites Sharma, called an anchor Reshma Mayeka and told her that she had been selected for a particular role. On the call, he said, “I am speaking from Dharma Productions, and we are casting for our next film Mr. Lele. You have been selected, but you have to pay Rs 2,500.” Nitesh Sharma also shared details to convince the actress. She also claims that before Nitesh someone had called from Dharma Productions’ official landline, but because she couldn’t receive it he called her from his number.
After this she said she cannot pay him 2500rs because of the lockdown crisis. So, Nitesh asked her to pay 1500rs as an audition fee instead. However, she said no to that too. Later, he said if you cannot pay then you will need to compromise, you will just need to have ‘sex talk.’ The actress got angry and denied that too. Have a look at the screenshots of the chats below.
