That's when she retailiated and claimed that Sohail Ramani asked her to get off the sets four times. She then said Jatin Bajaj tried to obstruct her car. She said, "It was March 7, my marriage anniversary and Holi when the incident happened. I had informed in advance that I want a half day since my daughter really looks forward to Holi. I was asked to get off the sets four times by Sohail Ramani and the executive producer tried to stop my car by standing behind it and was not allowing me to leave the sets." She called the sets an 'extremely male chauvinistic place'.
Further she also revealed how during her pregnancy she was sacked as her co-star was leaving. She said that even though she was ready to work till 9 months of her pregnancy, she was asked to leave. Talking about the sexual harassment claims, she said that producer Asit Modi has made many advances towards her.

But it is enough now I won't take it anymore."
Asit Modi's reaction on the same is still awaited.
