A film producer's brother has been arrested by the Mumbai Police for allegedly sexually harassing a female actor. According to a Republic TV report, the 35-year old has been accused of touching the woman inappropriately and seeking sexual favours from her in exchange for acting opportunities. She reportedly claimed that the man had approached her for a project and asked her if she will be comfortable with shooting in Pune. He, however, sought sexual favours in return for helping her get the project. According to a ANI tweet, FIR has been reportedly registered under Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
“Mumbai Police arrested a 35-year-old man, brother of a film producer, on charges of inappropriately touching & seeking sexual favours from a struggling actress in exchange for getting her roles.
