TV actress Tina Dutta, who shot to fame with Colours' popular show Uttaran has accused Mohit Malhotra of touching her inappropriately. Tina and Mohit currently feature in Star Plus' supernatural show Daayan. Reportedly, the actress was seen crying on the sets and has even complained to the producers. Tina said that she has done intimate and romantic scenes before but never faced something like this with anyone. She called Mohit annoying and frustrating.
Talking to Spotboye, Tina said, “He would say that his character demands that he should keep his hand here and there. There was a big showdown on the set. It happened at Klick Nixon Studios, when we're shooting for a hospital scene. Some media people were also there and they saw this. Of course. I made it loud and clear. I have done rape scenes, romantic scenes and intimate scenes before in my career, but never faced something like this with anyone before. He is so annoying. He is so frustrated.”

Tina has been facing issues with Mohit for some time. According to the actress, he refused to change his behaviour even after warning from the makers, “It was going on since a long time. I went public only after it became so much that I couldn’t take it anymore. Nobody gives excuses like him that ‘woh scene mein bahek gaya tha’. He can’t say he got carried away. He was obviously doing it deliberately,'' Tina said.
Later Tina told Pinkvilla that the production house was supportive when she raised her issues related to Mohit and she leaves it to them to sort out the problem. However, when Mohit was approached for comment, he sent out a televised joint statement to the entertainment portal. In the clip, he says, ''She is my good friend and we share a cordial relationship,'' while Tina stands uncomfortably alongside him.
