In an exclusive interview with Hindustan Times, the actress disclosed the appalling conditions that she and other cast members were subjected to during their time on the show. Jennifer stated, “The production team would not wash our clothes, and we had to wear outfits for 20 days. The clothes would even stink badly. There were times when we washed our clothes ourselves, and only some selective people had their clothes washed by the team. We even had to beg for the most basic necessities like water. There were only a few bottles of water available, and we were scolded if we ever asked for more. A packet of biscuits used to be a big deal for us; forget about dinner. In the 9 pm shift, if we asked for biscuits, they wouldn't even provide them.”
She further added, “Throughout the show, I wore my own jewellery, shoes ke paise bhi 2-3 saal pehle se dena shuru karte the and earlier we used to get old ripped shoes which could not be worn. The child artists were never given outfits by the production. They did even care about covid as there were no precautionary measures taken and even the sets were sanitised only once during the pandemic, the make-up artists used to wear safety suits only for the sake of it while our vans were filled with cockroaches while the male leads used to have luxurious vans. We were told that we are just fillers and the production is doing a favour by giving us rooms with ACs.”
Earlier, Asit Kumarr Modi dismissed the allegations made by Jennifer, labelling them as baseless and threatened to take legal action against her for attempting to defame him.
