Even as Shiney Ahuja's appeal to the Mumbai High Court is pending hearing, his problems seem to be growing. Allegedly, Sayali Bhagat, his co-star in the upcoming movie 'Ghost, has claimed that Shiney misbehaved with her and also made inappropriate advances towards her.
The buzz is that Sayali will soon file a police complaint against Shiney and also his wife Anupam, who has apparently been harrassing her via text messages after the story was first published in a magazine.
The actor, who was jailed after being accused of raping his maid (a charge he denied), was granted bail in April, 2011.
Shiney has also been shocked by an advertisement rolled out by Micromax Mobile this week that makes a reference to the case. The ad, tagged the 'Bai commercial', takes a humorous dig at the actor.
The ad, which is said to have been made especially for the Diwali season, has infuriated Shiney, who is taking legal action against the mobile company.
Conforming this, the actor's publicist Dale Bhagwagar said, "Shiney has sent a legal notice to the mobile company as the advertisement amounts to willful character assassination."
"As we know, Shiney had challenged his conviction and the Mumbai High Court has admitted his appeal, which is currently pending hearing. For the mobile company to air such a commercial influencing public opinion when Shiney's appeal is pending hearing, is equivalent to contempt of Court," he added.
Shiney, is known for films like 'Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi', 'Life In A Metro', 'Woh Lamhe', 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa' and 'Gangster'. He is expected to be back in action with the release of his upcoming movies 'Ek Accident', 'Ghost', 'Chaloo Movie' and 'Har Pall'.
