Mumbai: In a shocking turn of events, Pakistani actress Nadia Khan has accused a famous Hollywood actor for allegedly abusing her daughter physically during an audition in Dubai.
As reported by the Express Tribune, the renowned TV-host has registered a police complaint in this matter, which left Nadia’s 14-year-old bruised and badly shaken.
The actress termed the audition as a “Disney” thing.
The medical report has confirmed that she had suffered multiple bruises.
As quoted by Gulf News, Nadia said, “It happened quickly and in front of me and at least 30-40 other parents. Before my daughter, they were auditioning small children. She was the first teenager in that batch. My daughter was given a two-line script but before she could read it, she was grabbed and pushed so hard she fell on one of the parents. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. She is my daughter. No one has the right to touch my child let alone subject her to public humiliation and physical abuse. She was crying all day.”
The 45-year-old-actress also said that it was not only her daughter abused during the audition, but another teenager boy was slapped multiple times by the same person and labelled the situation as “bizarre”.
The report further says, parents arrived with their children for the audition after learning about the talent hunt from Facebook sponsored posts, inviting children to audition if they wished to meet Disney Channel stars.
However, Disney spokespersons have clarified that such talent hunt auditions are not associated by The Walt Disney Company or Disney Channel in any way.
