Also, the fans will see Riya Sen in the Bollywood space after years. However, the actors starring in this series got caught into the sexual harassment controversy. In an interview, Nishant Malkani shared an incident where Riya Sen casually pulled down his pants during a scene.

As reported in DNA, Nishant said, “I was stunned with all the reports of Riya sexually harassing me. For God’s sake, I would know if I was sexually harassed. And I am man enough to own up to it if it happened. It is ridiculous to even suggest that Riya took advantage of me.” He further added, ” If she pulled my pants down she did it for the scene. I am okay with it. She’s okay with it. Her husband is okay with it. Then who are these people shouting about sexual harassment?” (ALSO READ: Riya Sen’s Sex Scene From Ragini MMS Returns Goes Viral (Watch Video)) Also Read - Riya Sen Says Pressure of 'Being Sexy' Made Her Quit Bollywood as She Was Just 'Wearing Mini Skirts And Running Around Acting Cute'
He also said that the whole issue was just sensationalized in the name of ‘sexual harassment’. He added, ” Sexual harassment is a very serious matter. Please don’t trivialise it by using it for sensational headlines. Man or woman, it is equally important to come forward if you are sexually harassed. And I don’t think my mardaangi would be challenged if I owned up to being harassed.” Now that Malkani has clarified about the whole situation, makers hope that the controversy is put to rest.
