A report on the website of the daily Mid-Day said the alleged incident happened on the sets of Sherni, which stars Vidya Balan and is directed by Amit Masurkar, known for the critically acclaimed Newton (2017) starring Rajkummar Rao.
Sherni had gone on the floor in mid-March but then, like all other projects, had to halt its shoot because of the lockdown imposed to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Shooting for the film was resumed last month.
