Slumdog Millionaire actor, Madhur Mittal gets accused for sexual assault
Model and Actor, Madhur Mittal, who portrayed the part of Salim in Slumdog Millionaire, has been blamed for explicitly attacking and battering his former girlfriend on February 13 at her Mumbai home. An FIR under segments 354, 354A, 354B, 509, 323 of the IPC was recorded against Mittal on February 23 at the Khar Police station.
A source mentioned that they had common friends, after which he added her(name withheld on request) on Instagram. They got close and the actor asked her out. “They were seeing each other for two months. They parted ways and Madhur couldn’t deal with the breakup. He was shooting in Jaipur. Livid, he landed in Mumbai and entered her Bandra residence on February 13th. Unable to take rejection, he tried to force himself on her. He tried to see her again on the 15th, but the girl’s lawyer Niranjani Shetty asked him to leave the premises, and he complied.”
The actress’ lawyer Niranjani Shetty came in front to say, “The girl was not in a state to talk to me. Her friend reached out to me. She had sustained injuries under the eye, neck and lips. I discovered that she was battered and sexually assaulted. Our concern was her safety, so I sent a letter by post to the police station. I personally went to the Crime Against Women Cell (CAWC). They later called us and the FIR was filed.”
Agitated by all the rumours among his audience, he finally spoke to Bombay Times and told his side of the story. He said, “Getting to learn about things which are untrue is extremely disturbing. There have been WhatsApp messages filled with stories that are assassinating my character. These are being forwarded for weeks in casting directors’ groups denying me work. I’m the only earning member of my family since the age of seven and all these reports in the media are affecting me, my family and my career in more ways than you can imagine.” Madhur further requests, “I urge everyone to not jump to conclusions about me through these one-sided reports in the media. I have faith in the law and the actual truth shall be out soon.”
Madhur Mittal’s most popular characters include Tito from Shaka Laka Boom Boom. He became an overnight sensation as Salim Malik in the Academy-Award winning film Slumdog Millionaire.
