The Shakti Kapoor episode has left Bollywood stunned. The screen villain was caught on camera allegedly propositioning a wannabe actress on a TV news channel. In the alleged sting operation, Kapoor has named Subhash Ghai and Yash Chopra as directors who use the casting couch.

Now, an angry Ghai and Chopra have strongly denounced Kapoor's actions and have said the film trade associations would take action against him.
Ghai said, "We haven't decided whether to file a case or ban him from films.

That's a decision that will be taken by the association." It is believed a secret meeting was convened at Pehlaj Nihalani's home last night.

Nihalani is the President of the All India Motion Pictures and Television Producers Association (AMPTPP).

But when contacted, Nihalani denied the meeting took place. "There has been no meeting. The association will not be used to take action against any personal matter.

The people who are affected and have been named in the programme have to sort it out among themselves.

Why should the whole industry get involved in this? If we have any meeting, it will be to decide what steps to take with the media, which is getting stronger every day and creating these explosions."

Does he think Kapoor is guilty? "No, Shakti was framed. It was a well-laid out plan.

An edited version of the video was shown, in bits and parts. Obviously it was a planned conspiracy to defame him. India TV got so much mileage out of it. Today, everyone is watching a channel nobody looked at yesterday."

He added, "Of course, the casting couch exists in the film industry. But it exists everywhere — the fashion and corporate world too has it. Kis kispe action loge? Jo pakde gaye wohi chor hai, baki sab sadhu hai?"

Sources in the film industry say the fraternity will now be more careful about what they are doing and whom they are talking to. Says Nihalani, "Of course they will be more scared and much more careful about whom they talk to and what they say.

This is the second time it has happened after the Madhur Bhandarkar episode last year. In the west, everything is planned; they have their own cameras and they give out their own tapes. Now, we will have to take precautions too."
