Few hours back, we brought you Sonal Vengurlekar's interview where the actress revealed her sexual harassment scandal accusing Raja Bajaj. In her interview she mentioned that she trusted that man to bag her work as he is the father of renowned actress Sheena Bajaj. A while ago, we spoke to Sheena Bajaj to get her take on Sonal's story.
When asked if she is shocked to her what Sonal has said about her dad Raja Bajaj, Sheena said, “ It’s not shocking for me to hear this because I know everything--- and it’s nothing but a blackmailing story. And immediately, Sheena passed on the phone to her mother (Anju Bajaj) who stated that Sonal is lying to the media. "We shall prove it in court that we are innocent," Anju quipped.
Excerpts from the conversation that followed:
Why would Sonal blackmail you guys?
Sonal blackmailed us for money. She demanded Rs 3 lakh and was ready to settle it in Rs 1.5 lakh.
Sonal says that she dragged you'll to the police station?
Not at all. In fact she wasn’t willing to go to the police station and file any kind of complaint. On the contrary, we forced her to go to the police station and take the recourse of the law. Blackmailing is a continuous process, so we didn't want to settle anything out of court
According to you, what happened in this whole incident?
Sonal is even lying about the dates that she is telling the media. They had gone to Khopoli but on March 1. It was just an open plot, it was not a resort or a farm house. Only 2 rooms were there in that property, so what she is saying that he (husband) entered her room and tried to molest her does not arise. Raja wrapped up his shoot and came back to Mumbai, the same day.
Next day, we got a call from the plot's owner saying that he has not completed his work and gone back to Mumbai. He asked us to come back but we told him that whatever work was remaining according to him, we will get some location in Mumbai and shoot it here only. At this point he told us that Sonal was creating a ruckus out there, complaining about Raja's behaviour.
Sonal has done this rubbish in cahoots with the owner. They both did it to extort money from us, but we did not give in.
She came with a friend to your house...
She brought a person named Amol with him on March 7, who did a big tamasha -shouting, abusing, threatening and what not. That friend was also in this whole plan, I guess.
Sonal also told us that the friend slapped your husband...
Ye nayi stories kahan se aarahi hain? Nobody slapped my husband.
Your husband told her to remove clothes and chant...
She is completely lying. This is a new addition from her end. The time when she came to complain, she didn’t even mention this.
What happened at the police station?
We were the first one to enter the police station and not her. We actually wanted to meet a senior PI but he wasn’t available. And then we saw her walking in. FYI, she told me there if I give her Rs 1.5 lakh, she won’t file any complaint. But then my husband said let her do what she wants because he is not scared as he had done no wrong.
I will just request her that whosoever's name she is mentioning in the story, 'please get all of them together and prove whatever you are claiming is true'. Because we know, it will not happen. She is doing all this only to get attention and fame. She is simply riding on the #MeToo campaign with a bunch of lies.
