New Delhi: TV actor Abhishek Malik who is seen as lead actor in &TV’s show ‘Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi’ has got into trouble. Actor has been accused of assaulting the creative head of ‘Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi’, Tushar Thapliyal.

Actually, few days ago, the complete team sat for a briefing session as the producer Nivedita Basu suggested a major change in the storyline. As per the report in Spotboye.com, “The creative head, Tushar Thapliyal, informed the team that the lead actor, Abhishek Malik’s character will go from a hunky lad to a geeky simpleton. Abhishek wasn’t convinced with the decision and gave a Tushar a piece of his mind. Things went so much out of hand that team members had to interfere and pull the two apart.”

When the portal contacted the Tushar, he said “While I was willing to discuss what can be done, Abhishek took the conversation to another level and began demeaning me on baseless grounds. I spoke to project head, Pankaj Kaushik, to help me in the situation, but before he could do anything, Abhishek came charging towards me. People on set had to pull us apart. I work for respect and have been associated with big names from the industry. I can handle tantrums but assaulting a colleague is not acceptable. I am quitting the show”

On the other hand, Abhishek denied all these allegations and said “Yes, we had an argument. While I was trying to express my disapproval at the change in look, Tushar was rude and said that I have no choice. He was threatening me to which I said that I have my ways of getting back. However, I never touched him. Tushar doesn’t know how to treat actors. He has had an episode with Tasneem Sheikh (she essays the role of Sindura Mittal) in the past. It was put to rest after he apologised.”
