Not very long ago, Bollywood actress Mahima Chaudhry, in an interview, had made some shocking allegations on filmmaker Subhash Ghai. Now, the latter has issued a statement and said how contrary to all the claims, Mahima and he are good friends and continue to stay in touch through messages even today. Subhash revealed how the duo had a minor conflict post the release of their film, Pardes; however, things were resolved after three years and they share a healthy bond.
Subhash Ghai’s statement read, “I am amused reading this news. Mahima n I are very good friends till date and are still in touch through messages. She is a very nice and mature woman of today. She recently shared on how she gets welcomed at every event with a song from Pardes ‘I love my India’ even after 23 years. Yes, there was a small conflict in 1997 post the release of Pardes, which became a big blockbuster and for which she even got the Filmfare award for best actor. My company did send her a show-cause notice for flouting a clause in our agreement.”
He added, “Media n industry reacted in a big way and so I withdrew n canceled her contract with Mukta. After 3 years, she came to me with her family n apologised for her impulsive reaction. I forgave her n thereafter we became friends again. She is a jovial good person I trust. She must be right in feeling that she was bullied when asked by someone.”
Subhash concluded saying, “Actually I admire her great gesture when she did a guest appearance in a song in my last film Kanchi in 2015. I guess we do get entertained with the smallest of an old tiff which is normal in course of life in show biz.”
