Meera Chopra from 1920 London (2016) and Section 375 (2019) fame faced a tough time creating her house. The actress was forced to submit an FIR to her interior decorator and is still waiting for justice.
A house purchase using your hard-earned cash is always a dream come true for many. But this dream is real one can design and furnish the house according to one’s preferences. This phase requires some time and is a straightforward procedure for many. However, not all are fortunate.
FIR that has been filed at the Oshiwara Police station, under sections 354 (outraging women’s modesty), 504 (intentional insult to cause an infraction of the peace), 506 (2) (criminal intimidation) and 509 (insulting the modesty of a woman).
In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama, Meera Chopra revealed, “I bought a new home situated in Andheri, Mumbai. I employed the interior design company from Oshiwara, known as Rajinder Dewan, to design the home. I had to travel to Banaras for a shoot that lasted about 15 days. Therefore, we agreed to an agreement, and the cost we set was at Rs. 17 lakhs. He demanded that I pay the amount of Rs. 8 lakhs which means, almost 50% of the amount in advance. He promised me that he’d get the bulk of the work when I’m away. I didn’t know him well, but there was a sense of trust. 50% advance koi deta bhi nahi hai. However, I did so because I believed that he would manage the home.”
Meera Chopra later states that she was stunned when she returned from the shoot “I had provided him with designs and instructed that he should use certain kinds of woodwork and Ply. Because Mumbai is a city that is humid and is humid, you need to select top-quality materials. However, when I returned, I discovered that his chosen material was not up to par. Then, I discovered that the majority of interior decorators use this method of using low-quality materials. I advised him to replace the material. He said no. He’s a lot older than me. He’s close to a half-century old. So I politely said to him, ‘ “Aap, please raise mat too. Nahin toh main aapse kaam nahi kara paungi’. In response, he was very abusive in front of all workers. It’s hard to believe I was escorted out of my home and told me: Tumaise Bola Mat Karo…warn workers kaam nahi”karenge”. Imagine, unhone meri hi ghar se mujhe bahar nikal diya!”
Meera Chopra added, “I came home, and I sent him a message saying, “I will not be able to collaborate with you. Please submit the receipts for the expenses you’ve made up to now and then return the balance’. He didn’t, however, give me any money. He gave me certain handwritten bills. He then vanished.”
She said, “This is why I went to the police station to file an FIR. Ab tak uss FIR pe koi action hua nahi hai. It’s been a while. I’ve been quiet about it. However, as a young woman on her own in Mumbai, I can get help to a certain degree for help. Get assistance. There is no family here. I have friends here. Some people from here by main the extent that they don’t favour making, Sakti hoon. There’s a police department, and they’re supposed to perform their job.”
She also stated, “Now it’s not about money. That’s not to say that I am negating that money is not significant. It’s my first home, and therefore it’s unique. The most shocking thing is that he wasn’t well-known to me. And I was a bit unsure of his identity. ladki ke saath aisa”chale homosexuale.”
Meera Chopra later stated that many individuals have also had trouble with their interior decorators “I had posted about my displeasure on Twitter, and many people have responded that interior designers defraud their clients. Also, I’m trying to spread the word that Agar Kisi Ke Saath Tarah use great ke thee hai then the police need to take action immediately. This is because it frequently happens, particularly in Mumbai. In our city, kisi ke paas time nahi hota hai roz ja ke ghar dekhne ka. And the whole system is based on trust, and the people who take benefit of this.”
She added, ” Agar koi normal ladki se do INR. 8 lakh leke chala jaata, woh toh FIR bhi nahi kar paati. Therefore, I would like to make this known to the world that this kind of behaviour isn’t acceptable.”
Meera Chopra also complained about Rajinder Dewan’s daughter Richa Malhotra “She is about my age. She was a frequent visitor with their father on trips to our home. In all my conversations, I’ve always said that this is desh my sistership nahi hai. Ek aurat dusri aurat ki help nahi karti. There is no regret that her father cheated another girl for thousands of rupees. She has to inform her father that the way he’s acting is not correct. Sadly, people descend to this level because of money, and people are silent. Someone has to speak.
When asked if she had followed up with police officers for inaction regarding her complaint, Meera Chopra said, “I did for almost one month. But then I stopped since I needed to find a new design team. Additionally, the shoots I was doing were in progress. This meant that I was unable to follow up with an incident. The FIR is filed. I trust that the police will be honest and fair.”
She also said, ” Jab Tak police peeche na pado in a way, tab to Kuch nahi Karti. It’s understandable since they have much bigger issues to take care of. However, even though my problem is comparatively minor and not being addressed, it’s occurring hugely because the culprits are aware that there is they will not be able to take any action towards them.”
What frightens Meera Chopra is that police can take action at any time to arrest Rajinder Dewan as he’s not disappearing. “He’s living in Oshiwara,” she revealed.
Did Meera Chopra attempt to meet Rajinder Dewan in his home or his office? She claimed that she stayed clear of making the trip for reasons, “Actually, he’s a “goonda”. He’s extremely violent. I was with him at the station. Even before the officers, he was verbally abusing me. If I tell him something’s not right, he’ll get angry. He’s not open to any form of criticism. People like him should be sanctioned. If someone does this to me, knowing that I’m in the business with some connections, imagine the way they are threatening people like the common human being.”
Meera Chopra also revealed that actress Diljit Dosanjh might be a victim to their unethical behaviour, “He had designed Diljit’s home located in Oberoi Springs. They just told me. They said that 90 percent of the time, kaam haone baad Diljit Ne inko nikaal diya that. The daughter of the actor said she asked the manager of the actor to allow her to record the work of their actors, but the manager denied the request. I felt extremely sorry for the actors. However, now I understand the reason why Diljit’s manager could have denied the two. They could have committed some infraction.”
The house is getting ready thanks to an interior designer who was recently hired. “I’ll be moving to my new home in the next couple of hours,” she said and left.
