Filmmaker Mahmud Hasan Shikder has alleged that popular movie actress Mahiya Mahi embezzled several lakh taka from him.
In a program of a private TV channel, Mahmud said Mahi took from him Tk 25,000 for a costume for shooting of a song of Avatar movie, but she performed in the song wearing an old costume she had worn in another film -- Dhaka Attack.
He said the actress took several lakh taka from him for purchasing costumes but used old dresses during shooting.
Asked why he did not protest the matter when it happened, Mahmud said that had he done so, she could have stopped working for the film.
Avatar, a movie on the negative impacts of drug abuse directed by Mahmud and starred by Mahi, was released on September 13 in 33 cinemas across the country.
Contacted for her version on the allegations, Mahi told Daily Amader Shomoy that the monetary issue was discussed and settled before the beginning of the shooting“I have nothing to do if he raises any complaints now after the release of the film,” she said.
