Recently, SpotboyE exclusively told you that a fake casting director, who is introducing himself as ‘Aditi from Balaji’s casting department’, had been approaching a TV actor. Earlier it was Namish Taneja who shared his ordeal with us and revealed that the imposter even asked actor to commit suicide. He had even shared the screenshots of his chat with the fake casting agent who had told him, ‘People like you should die and Sushant should come back.’ Soon after Ekta Kapoor’s, Balaji learnt about the fraudulent activity they filed a police complaint with the authorities at Amboli Police Station in Mumbai.
After Namish Taneja, another TV actor Anuj Sachdeva who was about to become a victim of this imposter. Taking to Insta, Anuj shared the screengrab of his chat with the same imposter who now posed as Shah Rukh Khan’s production Red Chillies’ casting director. But it seems like Anuj has been aware of this fake casting agent as he didn’t fall for it easily. Calling him out in the WhatsApp chat, Anuj revealed his real name is Piyush. Read their chats below:
After learning about the fake casting agent, Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Production had released a statement. It read, “We, at Balaji Telefilms Ltd, would like to state that the said person who has sent this message is a fraudulent individual, who is posing to be our casting agent and sending extremely poor in taste communication to aspiring actors. We are neither associated with her in any capacity nor do we know this person. As soon as we were intimated about this matter, yesterday, we filed a police complaint with the authorities at Amboli Police Station against the said individual. We request you not to entertain such imposters.”
Speaking in detail about the same scenario Namish Taneja told SpotboyE, “I was getting WhatsApp messages, SMS and calls from this number when I messaged her what exactly she (I assumed she was a girl after I saw her display picture on Whatsapp) wanted, she told me that she is casting for Balaji Telefilms and wanted to cast me for Naagin 5, I requested her to send the details. Though she failed to provide the details in a professional way, still I gave her the benefit of the doubt, but while chatting I realised something is corny.” (ALSO READ: EXCLUSIVE: 'Namish Taneja, You Should Commit Suicide, Sushant Should Come Back': Fake Casting Agent For Naagin 5 ABUSES Vidya Star - Screen Shots Inside)
