Actor Rukaiya Jahan Chamak has been banned from working in the entertainment industry for three months by the Directors’ Guild. This suspension will begin on the 1st of September and continue for the next three months.
At a press conference, Kamruzzaman Sagar, general secretary of the Directors’ Guild, announced the decision on the 21st of August.
In a written statement, he stated that as per the decision of the Directors’ Guild executive members, actor Rukaiya Jahan Chamak will not be able to work with any producers for the next three months following the substantiated allegations against her. She is also restricted from engaging in any work in television and digital media during this period. She was instructed to complete any pending work by the end of this month.
Allegations against Chamak: What really happened on set that day?
“Many such unspeakable incidents have occurred where makeup artists and production crew members have been physically assaulted or harassed in a similar manner, which often goes unreported. None of these can be accepted in any way,” said Kamruzzaman Sagar.
Earlier this month, chaos erupted on the sets of the television project “Shoshur Barite Prothom Din”, when female lead Rukaiya Jahan Chamak allegedly harassed her co-artistes verbally at a shooting house in the capital’s Uttara. Apparently, the actress not only verbally accosted her elderly co-star Masum Basher, but there were also claims of her allegedly trying to hit the actor.
