In March this year, television actress Tina Datta who is currently seen in Ekta Kapoor’s super natural show ‘Daayan’ has accused her co-star Mohit Malhotra of inappropriately touching her during filming of intimate scenes.
The actress had also told that Mohit was warned by the makers several times, but he was not ready to change his inappropriate behaviour. Later on, it was revealed that the two had ‘ironed out their differences’.
And now the same news surfaces with another actress making similar accusations against the actor. Priya Bathija, who joined ‘Daayan’ cast just a few months ago, a report claimed, has also apparently raised the same issue faced with co-actor Mohit.

According to reports, Mohit gets too touchy while shooting scenes that demand physicality. It was also said that she had created a huge scene on the set and sat in the vanity van refusing to shoot with him. Post which, Mohit apologised to her saying it is just his over friendliness.
However, Priya denied the news and claimed this to be a false piece of news. While talking to Spotboye, she said, “This is completely untrue. I am not someone who would lock herself in vanity and cry her eyes out. I would have slapped Mohit on his face if he ever misbehaved with me but that isn’t true. In fact, I wasn’t even shooting for the last 10-12 days, I only started shooting a day before and read this news today. I don’t know who is doing this but let me clarify, I know Mohit and his brother from before and we share a cordial relationship. I don’t even interact too much on sets.”
Reacting to the same, Mohit told the portal, “The story is completely false and baseless. I am sure if you speak to Priya she will say the same thing. We did not have any issues and the one which is being stated is completely out of question. I wish people notice our good work rather than count on random, baseless source-led stories”.
Meanwhile, Priya Bathija is reportedly going through a rough patch in her personal life. The actress who ties the knot with DJ Kawaljeet Singh in 2017 has reportedly been living separately for almost a year now and the couple are likely to file for divorce.
