Starlet to challenge Bhandarkar's bail
A Ganesh Nadar in Mumbai | August 30, 2004 20:55 IST
The starlet-model, who has accused Chandni Bar director Madhur Bhandarkar of rape, on Monday accused him of running a slander campaign against her.
Addressing a press conference in suburban Oshiwara in Mumbai, she said she will oppose Bhandarkar's bail in a high court.
Bhandarkar was granted bail on July 30 by Principal Judge R R Vachha.
The victim could not answer several questions posed by the media. At one point she snapped at a journalist, calling her 'Bhandarkar's agent.'
The starlet-model, who has done bit roles in some of Bhandarkar's movies, said she had sought Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray's help, but all she got was sympathy.
