Ranbir Kapoor and Nargis Fakhri might have had fun shooting for the Junglee Jawaani sequence in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar, but ask actress Ashika Suryavanshi and she will tell you how the very ‘fun’ scene has turned her life into a living hell. Ashika was shocked to see herself on screen in a film that was described as semi-porn in Rockstar. In fact, the actress is now filing a complaint against the makers of Rockstar for tarnishing her reputation.
The film that Ranbir and Nargis watch in ‘Amar Talkies’ in Rockstar is actually a film titled Jungle Love starring Ashika.
“Ashika has become the butt of all jokes in her friend circle. Her phone hasn’t stopped ringing ever since Rockstar released. People have been asking her all sort of lewd questions,” revealed a source.
Angry at the filmmakers for projecting her film as a semi-porn venture, she even approached the makers of Jungle Love, Suresh Jain. “Ashika called up Suresh. He simply told her that since he reserves the rights of the film, he can give it to anyone he wants. He did not see Ashika’s perspective. All said and done, it’s very unfair,” added the source.
When contacted, Ashika said, “This is not fair. Jungle Love was not a sleazy film. It is very embarrassing that the makers of such a big film like Rockstar has stooped so low. Such tactics should be condemned.”
Angry with the filmmakers for tarnishing her image, Ashika has now decided to file a complaint against them. “I am filing a complaint in CINTAA (Cine and TV Artistes Association) against Imtiaz Ali, Ashtavinayak – the producer of Rockstar and the producer of Jungle Love Suresh Jain.”
“Trust me. I am very disturbed. People are laughing at me. Either Imtiaz or Ashtavinayak or Jain should have informed me that they were using my clip in their film. Bataya bhi nahin,” added an extremely disturbed Ashika.
