Shakti Kapoor, who has worked in more than 700 films, once caught in a sting operation that made him banned from the industry for sometime. Scroll down to know the full story.
Actress Shraddha Kapoor’s father Shakti Kapoor was flagged once for his bad side when he was accused of asking for sexual favors while offering work in bollywood. Back in 2005, a video aired on India TV exposing the ugly side of bollywood. Shakti Kapoor was caught in a sting operation when he asked to make love to the undercover reporter. In the video, he can be heard saying, “I want to make love to you… and if you want to come into this line (film industry), you have to do what I am telling you to do.”
The reel-life villain went on naming the actresses who came their way to sleep for works in bollywood. Shakti Kapoor named three leading actresses and mentioned that they slept with his friend and filmmaker Subhash Ghai to achieve the greater heights in film industry. His statement resulted in ‘Ban’ of him from the industry by Film and television Producer Guild of India. However, the Association of Indian Motion Pictures and TV Program Producers decided to not ban the actor as these charges were not proved.
Preity Zinta, whose name was one of the three actresses named by him, slammed Shakti for his statement and said, “This comment is made in a very poor taste and he is truly a person who has no respect for anyone and no honour.” The actress had added that she was happy to be part of the industry, she had felt that one dirty fish spoils the whole pond. “He is truly a real life villain and deserves to be banned from our film industry as there is no place for him here.”
Shakti Kapoor later said that the video was tampered. He mentioned that the reporter had met him several times. And she had warned him if he won’t meet her in hotel which she booked, she would commit suicide.
