Zareen Khan in Legal Trouble For Calling Aksar 2 “Vulgar”

At an interview with a tabloid, Zareen Khan makes defamatory remarks against the makers. The actress alleges that she was assured of Aksar 2 being a “clean film” but was asked to “wear minimal clothes in every frame”. She also accused the team of having a lax attitude towards security which almost resulted of her being molested by the mob.  Zareen also stated that her fellow co-stars were present right there and then but did not help her. The director Ananth Mahadevan’s uncertainty and cluelessness after a certain point along with certain angles that blurred the line between sensuous and vulgarity and the longer duration of kisses caused the actress to lash out.

To these accusations, according to a media agency producer Narendra Bajaj said, “I will legally pursue the matter after consultation with my counsel." He further said, “Zareen was kept in the loop and a bound script was given to her and nothing since has changed. As for the clothes, she tried everything in Mumbai before we left for the schedule in Mauritius and all the clothes were approved by her. So, I don't understand her comments."
