New Delhi: Actress Ameesha Patel, who recently campaigned for a Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) candidate for the assembly election in Bihar, has accused the leader of “threatening, blackmailing and misbehaving with her”. An audio clip of Ameesha, in which she has accused Prakash Chandra, the LJP candidate, of these charges, is going viral on the internet. However, the authenticity of the clip couldn’t be independently verified.
Meanwhile, in an interview to India Today TV, the ‘Gadar’ star described the campaign trail in Daudnagar as a “nightmare” and said, “I was so scared for my life and for the team of people that were with me that I had no choice but to quietly play along till I safely reached Bombay.”
Ameesha Patel also claimed that Prakash Chandra “threatened her to speak highly of him” and even made her miss an evening flight to Mumbai.
“Instead he kept me in the village and threatened to leave me there if I didn’t agree and go along,” Ameesh said.
She further added, “But when I reached Mumbai I had to let the world know the truth. I could have been raped and killed. My car was surrounded at all times by his people and they would refuse to let my car move till I didn’t do as he said. He trapped me. And put my life in danger. This was his way of operating.”
Bihar is voting in a three-phased election from October 28 to November 7. The counting will take place on November 10.
