Choreographer Ganesh Acharya has been accused of forcing a woman choreographer to watch adult videos and depriving her of work. A 33-year-old woman has filed a complaint against Ganesh Acharya at Maharashtra Women's Commission and Amboli Police Station.

In her complaint, the choreographer said that she was asked to give a commission from her income to Acharya and watch adult videos.

Ganesh Acharya is the General Secretary of the Indian Film and Television Choreographers Association (IFTCA). The complainant is a choreographer at the IFTCA and has alleged that Acharya has been harassing her ever since he became the General Secretary of the association.

The complainant also alleged that since she did not agree to Acharya's terms, he sought revenge from her and got her IFTCA membership suspended. According to the complainant, the choreographer also issued a letter to other choreographers instructing them not to work with her.

Earlier, veteran choreographer Saroj Khan accused Acharya of exploiting his dancers and using his position to malign the Cine Dancers Association (CDA). Acharya, however, fended off the allegations made against by Khan.

Addressing a press conference in Mumbai on January 17, Saroj Khan said, "I am just saddened that Ganesh wants to divide this association which is not good. He and his father were associated with this association. It is good that we have rejoined the federation because we have to take some steps."

This is not the first time that Ganesh Acharya has faced harassment charges. Tanushree Dutta had lashed out at the choreographer for spreading "malicious rumours" about her and ruining her reputation.

Along with Nana Patekar, Tanushree had filed a complaint against Ganesh Acharya as well. He was the choreographer for the 2008 film Horn OK pleassss.
