Actress Sonal Chauhan harassed at fashion event in Jaipur


Actress Sonal Chauhan, who made her Bollywood debut with ‘Jannat’ opposite Emraan Hashmi, has claimed that she was harassed and mistreated by the organisers of a fashion show, where she was invited to be a showstopper.

Sonal was invited to walk as a showstopper at the finale of Jaipur Couture Show, but there was no arrangement done for the actress and her team, despite the organisers assuring of the same earlier. When she arrived at the venue, there was no sign on any room for her to stay and the actress had to face a lot of the issues related to food, lodging and transport.  

“She will now be more careful about committing for any event,” a source close to the actress said. “Sonal and team were assured proper accommodation by the organiser whom we would not like to name for some reason. He said, ‘Please come, everything has been booked’, but nothing was done. I hope the organiser learns his lesson and does not do this to anyone again,” the source was quoted as saying by IANS.

The source added, “As a tip or warning, anybody going for a project or any work, take confirmation on all the details before going as we have completely lost trust. We had trusted the organiser and not in the faintest of imagination thought that such a thing would happen.”

The source also revealed that the organisers had been talking ill of actress Shamita Shetty and her team, who too was there for the event.

“The organiser even bad-mouthed actress Shamita Shetty and her team, complaining about the food bill. Now if a person has brought in her team, stayed with them the whole day, won’t she take care of them? Why would she let them go hungry? The whole attitude is wrong, I must say,” said the source.

Sonal predominantly works in Telugu films. In Bollywood, she was last seen opposite Neil Nitin Mukesh in ‘3G’.
