Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal reacts to sexual harassment case verdict.

Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal, who played Mrs Roshan Sodhi on the popular TV show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (TMKOC), had accused the show’s producer Asit Modi of sexual harassment.

Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal, who played Mrs Roshan Sodhi on the popular TV show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (TMKOC), has shared the first post on her official Instagram account after “declaring” her victory in a case of sexual harassment against TMKOC producer Asit Kumar Modi. In her post, Jennifer said that Asit Modi has been ordered to clear her outstanding dues and also pay Rs 5 lakh to her as compensation.

Jennifer penned a lengthy note on her social media account, thanking her husband Bobby Bansiwal and lawyer Ammitt Share for their constant support. She also shared a video of her making a hand gesture of victory sign.

“I declare VICTORY in my sexual harassment case… Asit Modi has been proven guilty in the case… Thank you God! I made it happen with the help of my lawyer @ammitt_khare, support of my hubby @bobbybansiwal & my close friends & family & my fans who truly believed that I wasn’t playing woman card or doing cheap publicity or fabricating things… I was just standing firm on faith ALL ALONE & speaking d truth, But it’s not over yet. Just letting Asit Modi pay my amount due (which he hasn’t yet paid even after 40 days of passing the verdict in Feb), (he has withheld my payment for past 1 year ) and a compensation of 5 lacs is NOTHING,” Jennifer wrote.

The actress further revealed that she had to go through extremely difficult times while fighting the case against the producer. “I have have gone through extreme mental trauma, loss of employment & friends, loss of prestige, medical bills, expenses for the case, etc, all this leaving my 10 year old daughter at home… And what about giving verdict for Sohil Ramani & Jatin Bajaj? No punishment at all to all 3 of them, so I am not satisfied completely… Still thankful to the Government of Maharashtra for at least looking into the case unlike the police authorities, but I won’t sit quiet,” she added.

Unhappy with the verdict, Jennifer further said, “They proved Asit Modi guilty of sexual harassment, which I knew from the beginning, what is new in it??? what about the trauma I went through in last 1 year, on the contrary the culprits are roaming freely posing as innocent.The verdict does not even ask Mr Modi, Sohil & Jatin to even apologize to me, as I was clearly abused while working in Tmkoc & the compensation asked to pay is menial, this I say because, Rs 5 lakhs is a petty amount for Mr Modi, by such amount, I think people like Mr Modi will get inspired to committ such crimes, as they can get away with bigger crimes by just paying off petty amounts. I am not accepting the verdict and decide to go further by just not taking my money.

“Also a woman’s self respect cannot be quantified in the manner the verdict & compensation was declared. This Victory of mine might encourage females to come forward if they are being treated in the wrong way but this is the bigger fight for justice,” Jennifer concluded her post by writing ‘Satyamev Jayate’.
