Shiney Ahuja’s maid told the fast track court that Shiney Ahuja Never Raped her. She also admitted that she made false charges on the instructions of the woman who helped her in getting the job with Ahujas.
This case made national headlines on all newspapers, new channel and it also affected Shiney Ahuja’s acting career.
“With such negative publicity against Shiney still grabbing headlines, the makers of Har Pall are wary of releasing the film. They feel it will get disastrous box office results if they release it now. According to perception, many pundits feel that audiences will reject Shiney’s film as he still hasn’t been pronounced free of the charges of raping his domestic servant. Shiney’s brand name needs to get positive light somehow to resurrect his acting career,” says a top trade source on conditions of anonymity.
“For the makers it is important that Shiney gets a verdict in favor of him. They will quickly release the film by riding on the positive wave. If not, they will then plan how they can still release it as lots of money is at stake. They will have to go ahead and promote the film with or without Shiney. The film is completely ready which means the producers have kept their investment locked and that’s not good,” the source adds.
The girl who works as maid is 20 year old and she appeared at a court on September 3 claiming that she was never raped by Shiney Ahuja.
“On September 3, the victim identified Shiney in the court and said she used to work at his residence as a domestic help. But when asked about the incident she said it never happened and that she was never raped,” public prosecutor Kashinath Dighe said.
Following this, the court declared her hostile. If the court deems fit, she can be punished for perjury, he said. The prosecution will continue presenting other evidence including the statements of 12 other witnesses, forensic reports and other documentary evidence. The next date of hearing has been fixed on September 15.
