Bend it like Bacchan: Sayali Bhagath: Filing a Complaint Against Amitabh Bachhan
A tell-all email that cast Big B as a villain has petered down to two players: a starlet and a princeling
This was the string of allegations on Monday afternoon. But by Wednesday evening, the star cast of this drama changed quite dramatically. Sayali Bhagat, with a different PR agency behind her this time (Chanel Post run by Vinith Handa), despatched an email debunking Crème talent agency as a bogus unit that she has no truck with, that the email was a vicious conspiracy to malign her.
So, at the heart of this ‘casting couch’ controversy, itself a budding genre of celebrity management for Bollywood’s fringe contingent (and often an entry ticket to the reality shows that lionize tinsel town’s pariahs) are two players now: Sayali Bhagat, a starlet who began her innings with the Emraan Hashmi-starrer, ‘The Train: Some Lines Are Never Meant to be Crossed’; and Anant Narrayan, who claims to be a prince from the erstwhile royal state of Bhareh in the Etawah district of Uttar Pradesh (see pic below).
