After Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan, a fake casting call is being made for Varun Dhawan's film Mr. Lele. Despite the postponement of this film, the artists are trying to loot the money by fake people calling themselves Dharma Production's casting directors. Actress Reshma Maykar also went for audition to get casting in Dharma Production's film, after which she was asked for money and favors. In an interview with Bhaskar, the actress shared her poor experience.
Reshma Maykar told during the interview, 'I am a professional anchor and wedding planner. I did a cameo in Nikhil Advani's banner film 'Hero'. Some people contacted me after seeing my Instagram profile. Gave the number of Nitesh Sharma. Nitesh said that he sees casting work in Dharma Productions and currently casting of Shashank Khaitan's' Mr. Lele 'is on.'
He further said, 'He wants to offer the role of Naina. In return, I have to deposit twenty five hundred rupees in the account. He also sent a screenshot of another artist. Claimed that he is offering him the role of aunt in the film. I will also be given a better roll. I refused. After that, he took a spam call and defamed him. Speak dirty things. I do not understand where he finally came from Dharma Production's landline number and how he was calling from that number.
Open letter from screenshot
Some screenshots of fake casting callers have also surfaced in which the person is cheating the girl by showing fake documents. In the conversation, the artist was first asked for his profile and later asked to pay Rs 2500 for the audition. When the girl denied it, the man demanded her to have sex talk, after which the girl ended the talk. Later, many fake calls came to the actress as well.
Director Shashank Khaitan gave clarification
As soon as the matter came to light, Shashank Khaitan gave a warning to the people, writing, 'Please be cautious of those who tell themselves about Dharma Production. Mr. Lele is not happening at the moment. We are not casting it '.
