She explained the incident to the media house and said that she abused that person after his appeal without hesitation. The incident happened a year ago, she said. She got a call from an unknown number, and a person spoke said that they were about to do a web series and wanted her to rope in.
The person told the budget that was way too low for Maanvi. But she asked why they were talking about the budget instead of scripts first. She asked to tell her the script first and let her decide the rest on roping in. But, the person said they were only asking people whether they are ok with the budget for now.
Maanvi said, when the person said about the budget, she replied, "no, it's less." But suddenly, the person said he would triple the budget if she could compromise. Thus left her in an utter shock.
Immediately, she started abusing him. She said that she said she would complain to the police. She said she was shocked to hear those words even after the movements like #MeToo.
