An Odia actress, on conditions of anonymity, leveled ‘sexual harassment’ allegations against Ollywood’s leading actor Papu Pom Pom. Kanak News has telecasted an interview with the actress today.
“I came to this industry a year back. In the last one year, after I came to ‘Jhoom Odisha Jhoom’ (a dance reality show), he gave me my first break in ‘Excuse Me’. He keeps calling me; however, I never go to see him alone as I have heard he exploits girls,” said the budding female actor in conditions of anonymity.
“On one occasion, we were travelling in the same car and he tried to touch me. I avoided him and told him that I will get off the vehicle if he continues to do that. He didn’t proceed afterwards,” she added.
While Kanak News was not able to get the reaction of actor Papu Pom Pom over the allegations made by the actress, Odisha Film Development Corporation (OFDC) Chairman and BJD leader Munna Khan assured that action will be taken, if the allegations are proven true.
