Director 'woes' on the sets of Diya Aur Baati Hum
The Director is said to be the captain of the ship and it’s quite natural for him to be on the commanding seat. But, what if he crosses the thin line between being commanding or authoritative and dominating? Well, issues do crop up then.
Something similar seems to have happened on the sets of Star Plus’ Diya Aur Baati Hum (Shashi Sumeet Mittal Productions).
As per a reliable source, director Rohit Raj Goyal is considered to be a very strict director on the sets. As a matter of fact, there have been times when artistes have walked out of the sets pertaining to his rude behaviour.
“In fact, recently a few artistes went ahead and complained to CINTAA about the same,” the source further went on to add.
When we contacted Rohit, he said, “Yes, there are times when I scold the artistes because I want them to perform well. Apart from that, at times it gets difficult to control their mischievous nature on the sets and that’s when I get stricter. I don’t think my artistes have an issue with that.”
On asking about his artistes complaining about him to the CINTAA, he observed, “I have no idea about that as CINTAA hasn’t approached me yet.”
We also went ahead to talk to Sehrish Ali, aka Chavi, who said, “We do a lot of masti on the sets; so there are times when our director gets angry. But, I don’t think any of us have an issue with it. Personally, I have become a better actor because of his scolding and teachings.”
“He is a very nice human being. In fact, we all respect him as he has been a part of the show since its inception,” averred Kanica Maheshwari.
We also called up Dharmesh Tiwari, General Secretary CINTAA, and he remained clueless about ‘the complaint’ part, “I haven’t received any such complaint.”
Anas Rashid and Deepika Singh remained unavailable for comment.
