Shilpa Shinde’s ongoing battle against Cine & TV Artistes Association (Cintaa) and producer Binaifer Kohli is getting murkier with each passing day. Shilpa has now approached Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena, the cine wing of Raj Thackeray’s party MNS, to intervene in the matter. The actress had a detailed meeting with the MNS members on Thursday.

Commenting on the development, Shilpa says, “First they got me banned and now even replaced me. Technically, I should be free to work anywhere but I am not allowed to. They are insisting that I pay the damages and only then can I get back to work. I still haven’t even got my remuneration from the production house. They owe me around Rs30 lakh. How can they force me to pay damages They have left me with no option but to seek political intervention.” She adds, “They (the party) were aware about the issue and have given me an assurance that they will not let Cintaa and Benaifer Kohli harass me like this. They also feel whatever is going on is very unfair. They will make sure I get justice.” The actress insists that the political wing is already sorting out matters for her. She claims, “We got calls from Cintaa to settle the matter amicably.” When we contacted actor Sushant Singh, the general secretary for Cintaa, he labelled Shilpa’s comments as baseless and accused her of lying.
