Aksar-2 actress Zareen Khan has alleged that the makers of the film wanted her to wear minimal clothes in every frame and she was upset with how as they had crossed the line from sensuous to vulgar.
Zareen said she did not walk away from the film, as she did not believe in such drastic measures.
"They wanted me to wear minimal clothes in every frame. Of course, I will raise questions and put my foot down na? Why was this masala being added? Were they not confident about what they had made till then?...I tried to find a middle solution, but every time there were arguments. Every day, they wanted a change in my clothes; they wanted me to change into something very irrational, something that would make me expose," she added, reported India Today.
Her reaction came after reports that the actress was mistreated by a mob, during the promotions of Aksar 2 in New Delhi, as the filmmakers had not bothered about her security.
On Sunday, the filmmakers reacted and said in a statement: "Zareen Khan and her team approved the entire tour schedule provided to them two days before the departure. She backed out of all her commitments leaving aside the press conference and a sponsor visit. She did not even complete a day of promotions, which troubled the makers to a point where they had to compensate a huge amount of money and were harassed and threatened till the wee hours of the morning. The bit about her almost getting molested, is absolutely untrue, as she left the venue throwing tantrums arguing with the sponsors as she did not want to stay or eat there. She left with four bodyguards and her manager in tow. She sat in the sponsor's car who she had shouted on and had an argument with. The sponsor withheld the key of the car, but the makers arranged for another car and sent her and her team to the hotel safely, after which she left for Mumbai without informing the makers. This is not the first time that Zareen has troubled the filmmakers. She has put them in a fix many a times and made them suffer losses."
Zareen added: "I worked so f***ing hard on Aksar 2 and got ill-treated. I am not saying that I am some sati-savitri but the insertion of content was supposed to be by mutual consent. I can take them to Court. I have the relevant papers. And now, the makers are trying to save their a**es. I hope I never see them again in my life."
Aksar 2 released on November 18 to negative reviews.
