Bollywood actress Ameesha Patel was in Bihar recently campaigning for an LJP candidate in the assembly elections. The actress told India Today that she felt unsafe during the Bihar campaign trail, and could have been raped and killed. Ameesha, while speaking to India Today, said that she feared for her life, and that she ‘had to play along’ to save her life and get out. She called the experience a ‘nightmare’ and said that she had gone there as a guest to Prakash Chandra, a candidate of the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) in the Bihar assembly election.
Ameesha Patel, while speaking to India Today, said, “I was so scared for my life and for the team of people that were with me that I had no choice but to quietly play along till I safely reached Bombay.” She also added that Prakash Chandra threatened, and blackmailed her while she was campaigning for him. She accused him of sending threatening calls and messages, asking her to speak highly of him after she arrived in Mumbai. “Even as I arrived back last evening in Mumbai, he started sending threatening calls and messages and asking me to speak highly of him as I had been honest about my terrible experience with him...,” said Ameesha.
She claimed that he made her miss her evening flight, and instead kept her in the village threatening to leave her there if she didn’t agree and go along. “But when I reached Mumbai I had to let the world know the truth. I could have been raped and killed. My car was surrounded at all times by his people and they would refuse to let my car move till I didn’t do as he said. He trapped me. And put my life in danger. This was his way of operating,” said Ameesha.
However, the LJP candidate Prakash Chandra has denied the allegations Ameesha leveled at him. While speaking to India Today, he said that all security arrangements were made for her, and none of what Ameesha claimed had happened.
