Mahhi Vij-Jay Bhanusali file FIR against their cook for threatening to kill their family

Well-known actor couple Mahhi Vij and Jay Bhanushali filed a police complaint on Thursday after their cook allegedly threatened to stab them and their two-year-old daughter Tara. Mahhi took to her Twitter account on Thursday to post a series of tweets describing her experience however later deleted the tweets. She did, in any case, talk about the incident and affirmed it in a subsequent interview.

On Thursday night, Mahhi posted a series of tweets in which she claimed that a cook she and Jay Bhanushali recruited only days ago, and was stealing from them.

Later in the day, Mahhi affirmed the entire incident while talking with ETimes. “It had just been three days and we were alerted that he’s stealing. I had waited to inform Jay. When Jay came, he wanted to settle the bill but the cook demanded to be paid for the entire month. When Jay tried to reason out, he said ‘200 bihari laake khada kar dunga’ (I’ll get 200 people outside your house). He got drunk and started hurling abuses at us. We went to the cops. I don’t care if anything happens to me, but I was scared for my daughter,” she said.

Mahhi and Jay ultimately filed a police complaint according to reports and the cook was arrested but later let out on bail. Apparently unhappy with the man being released, Mahhi said, “When we went to the police station he kept calling me. I have all the recordings. Seeing whatever is happening everywhere, it is very scary. What if he stabs me? If something happens to me, people will protest later. What’s the point then? I am scared for my family’s safety. I heard he will be out on bail. What if he actually gets men after coming out of the jail and targets us?”
