Removal of noted actor Kiran Mane from Marathi TV serial â€˜Mulgi Zali Hoâ€™, by the producer, has evoked contradictory claims.
Mane has claimed freedom of expression and should not affect his contract with the serial producer. He also held a discussion with Nationalist Congress Party Chief Sharad Pawar about action against him.
Meanwhile, Maneâ€™s co-workers in the serial, particularly women workers have alleged misbehavior by Mane during the shooting. They have lodged complaints against Mane with the Womenâ€™s Commission.
Kiran Mane is in the lead role in the serial. His wife Lalita has also filed a complaint against the producer of the serial. She has alleged vindictive action against her husband. Since his removal, he is under depression.
The National Womenâ€™s Commission Suzana Ghai has sought information from State Commissioner Rupali Chakankar in this connection.
