Three days back (9th March 2015), serial Diya Aur Baati Hum actress Deepika Singh slapped her co-star Anas Rashid on the set. The incident took place in the mid of shooting; where Deepika started yelling at Anas and it took a few minutes for the other actors present there to realise that the matter has become very serious.
The real reason behind Deepika’s decision to slap Anas is not known but reports said that Deepika slapped Anas for touching her improperly during a love sequence.
It is learned that Deepika felt Anas touched her in a wrong way during the shooting but she did not react at that time and completed the shoot without any objection. After the shoot, Deepika raised the issue to her director and other crew member but they ignored her complaint and resumed shooting.
A close source reveals “’Diya Aur Baati Hum ex-director Rohit Raj Goyal who is now a real husband of Deepika Singh moved out of the show and the reason behind his exit was Anas Rashid too. Anas and Rohit did not share a good rapport. There was a time when both of them turned physically violent on the set too. This was really affecting the show’s TRP. Also, Anas warned the makers about it and they left with no option but to replace Rohit with another director.”
Anas allegedly lodged a complaint with Cine and TV artistes association claiming that Deepika has falsely blamed him of molestation on the sets of the show.
