Jennifer Mistry opens up about Ghanshyam Nayak aka Nattu kaka…
When asked about late actor Ghanshyam Nayak being treated badly on the sets of Asit Kumarr Modi’s show, Jennifer said, “Maine Asit ji ko nahi dekha kabhi. Asit ji ne mere samne toh Nattu Kaka ko kabhi nahi hai and I’m sure woh nahi karte honge. Thoda bohot halka sa datna woh karte honge and woh alag baat hai (I never saw Asit misbehaving with him. At least in front of me Asit never treated Nattu kaka badly and I’m sure he will not. At times, he used to shout but that’s a different thing).”
Jennifer further revealed that it was Sohali (Ramani) who was very rude to him. She shared, “Sohail bohot badtameezi karta tha Nattu kaka ke saath. Unko bohot baar rote dekha hai. Sabne dekha hai rote hue. Every single person ne unko rote hue dekha hai (Sohail was very rude with him. I have seen Nattu kaka cry many times. Not just me, but everyone one sets has seen him cry).”
She went on to reveal that Nattu kaka was once badly crying on sets as he was not given a holiday.
Adding to that, Jennifer revealed she was treated the same way as Nattu ji on the sets of the show. Jennifer told us, “Saal ki ek chutti chahiye hoti thi par woh bhi nahi. Har baar rula kar hi diya hai. Mein chik chik ke gala fad ke royi hu sets pe (I used to only need one off a year but that was also not accepted. Everytime I’ve cried for it. I’ve cried on sets so much).” “It was very hurtful,” added Jennifer.
For the uninitiated, Ghanshyam Nayak passed away on 21st October, 2021 due to cancer.
On the other hand, Jennifer opened up about getting support from her co-stars and actors who sided with the producers. That’s not all, during the conversation, Jennifer also reacted to reports that she was creating controversy to participate in the Salman Khan-hosted reality show Bigg Boss.
