Mumbai: According to freelance show anchor Deborah Gray, a man who identified himself as Rohit Kumar, claimed that he was calling from Pooja Bhatt’s office. He then asked Gray to send her photographs for Pooja’s next film that included a ‘bold’ role.

After realising something was amiss, Gray got in touch with Mahesh Bhatt, who asked her to lodge an official complaint against Rohit with the police. Says Deborah, “Rohit provided me with a number claiming it was Pooja’s. But the number had a man’s photograph as the profile picture. After realising he was fake, I immediately contacted Pooja and Mahesh. I registered a complaint with Thane’s Kapurbawdi police station.”

Confirming having spoken to Gray, Mahesh Bhatt says, “We need to deal with such matters very aggressively. People can be taken for a ride. We don’t know any Rohit Kumar. Recently, someone posing as me asked a woman to send across her photographs wearing a bikini.”

Currently shooting in Udaipur, Pooja says, “I am rather mortified that people could be so devious and take advantage of unsuspecting actors, who think they have access to me through some self-proclaimed casting director. I have never hired a casting director in my life and never will.”
