Mumbai: Actor Shiney Ahuja has signed his first film after the infamous rape case tainted his character forever. The actor, who was arrested for allegedly raping his maid, is back in action again in a horror film that also stars beauty queen Sayali Bhagat.
According to sources, the horror film is named ‘Shunya’, and is being directed by Puja Bedi, the niece of Bobby Bedi, who produced ‘Bandit Queen’. So, it seems that the career of the actor has not crashed completely.
A source informed to a news daily, “Shooting for the film begins on May 12 in Lavasa, a small town near Pune.”
The actor will also be seen in a film titled ‘Accident’ opposite Soha Ali Khan. According to reports Shiney Ahuja and Soha Ali Khan separately shot the pending portions of their film even though the scenes required them to shoot together because of Soha’s apprehensions. Other actresses have also expressed their reservation, although in a subtle way, against working with the actor.
Shiney’s trial is still going on and the court has barred him from entering Mumbai.
