After Ganesh Acharya’s Porn Video Controversy, Another Woman Claims She Was Sexually Abused By Him In The 90s
After SpotboyE broke the news of a 33-year-old woman lodging a complaint against choreographer Ganesh Acharya, accusing him of asking her to watch porn in his office, looks like there’s more trouble for the choreographer.  Yet another woman has come forward and spoken up against Ganesh Acharya, alleging sexual abuse by him in the ‘90s. According to a report in Mid-Day, a senior background dancer approached the National Commission for Women (NCW), and in the letter addressed to the NCW, she stated that Acharya coerced her into having sex with him in 1990.

The woman told Mid-Day that it happened three decades ago and she has been married and has had kids since then, he hasn’t changed one bit. She said, “When I read about the FIR, I knew I had to speak up too. In 1990, I used to go to Sahiba hall in Andheri West where several masters take dance classes. Acharya used to assist Kamal masterji. I was 18 then and working as a non-member dancer." Sharing about what happened with her in detail, she said, “One day, Acharya said it's mandatory to learn Jive for auditions and invited me to his class in Santacruz East. Classes were held on Sundays at 11 am. His assistant Dilip picked me up from Khar subway and dropped me to a room on the first floor of Hotel East and West. I did not suspect anything till that point. There were no other students. Acharya said Dilip has gone to bring the sound system and other students. On the pretext of teaching me Jive, he kissed my neck and cheeks."

She further said that when she resisted, he threw her on the bed and said that he wanted to marry her and make love to her. “. I kept saying no but he kept moving his hands over my body. I was too terrified and told him I am on my period. He finally got off from me and said, 'Kya yaar, mood kharab kar diya (you spoiled my mood).”


She further said that Ganesh Acharya made other students ask her what the problem was, and was willing to waive off the fees. She said she knows another person with whom Acharya tried something similar. When Mid-Day reached out to Ganesh Acharya, he said, "I have explained in a press conference that some people are tarnishing my image because I took a stand against them. They control trade unions in the industry. My stand against them and in the interest of dancers is causing them losses. Everyone involved in these wrongdoings against me will be exposed. They may do many such things against me, but I will not give up."
