Lately, we have come across multiple instances of fraudelent people posing to be casting directors and how multiple actors have been the victim of the same.
Now, casting director Dhananjay Pandey, who has been working with Jay Mehta Productions and has done casting for shows like Jiji Maa, Gathbandhan, Jeet Gayi Toh Piya Morey, Madam Sir and India Wali Maa among others recently got a fake casting director arrested.
In a conversation with Tellychakkar, he said, “Well, I got to know that a group of four men were making calls to actors promising a role in the shows by Jay Mehta Productions and were charging 1 lakh and 50 thousand from actors as fees. When I got to know about these fake casting guys, I decided myself to see if it’s really true. I went to meet them as an actor and they actually lied saying that they handle shows of Jay Mehta Productions and would bag me a role but I have to pay the big amount as fees. I immediately got these fraudsters arrested for fooling actors and charging them. Currently, the police are handling the case. However, they have admitted their crime and revealed that they have been fooling people for more than 10 years now. It is shocking how actors these days get fooled by such impostors.”
Dhananjay shared FIR copy, photos of fake casting directors and fake casting requirement messages circulated in the industry on WhatsApp.
