Indian producer tried to get close to me: Actress
Narrating the horrid experience, Mehreen said: "I had reached Azerbaijan's capital Baku with Ehsan Ali Zaidi and Raj Gupta in connection with a shooting. As soon as they reached here, the behavior of both of them changed completely. When I refused their demand, they tried to misbehave with me. Working with Ali Zaidi and Raj Gupta has been nothing less than a nightmare for me. I don't even know whether they came here to work or they have some other motive behind it."
"The Indian producer tried to get close to me, but when I flatly refused, his style changed completely. They didn't even give me food. Not only this, my health had deteriorated during the shoot, yet he did not even see me," she added.
