Cases of sexual assault on Bollywood actresses have seen a spike in the recent few months. A couple of days ago, we informed you of a veteran actress registering a case of rape against a Mumbai-based businessman which led to the man being arrested. 

Today on March 26, another case of sexual assault has come to fore with a budding actress filing a complaint against a film producer of molestation, assault, threat, and robbing the actress.

According to a report published in a leading newspaper, the actress gave Rs 8 lakh to a producer to get the lead role in a film. After the shooting of the film was completed and she started dubbing for it, she realised that the movie was edited in an objectionable manner -- so much so that it looked like a soft porn film.

She also found that her shots and pictures appeared obscene.

The report then adds that the actress complained to the Oshiwara police post which led to the arrest of the producer. The producer was arrested for alleged objectionable editing, molesting, assaulting, threatening and robbing the actress. 

Currently, as per the DCP, further investigations are going on in the matter.
