Ganesh Acharya however has denied both the charges and are conspiracies against him.

Saroj Khan spoke up and said that Acharya misused his position to malign the Cine Dancers Association. During a press conference she said, “I am just saddened that Ganesh wants to divide this association which is not good. He and his father were associated with this association. It is good that we have rejoined the federation because we have to take some steps.”

Acharya said that all the allegations made by veteran choreographer were false.

Tanushree Dutta accused Ganesh of spreading ‘malicious rumors’ about her and damaging her reputation. The Bollywood actress had also filed a case against the choreographer when she was harassed whilst the shoot of Horn OK Pleassss.
