Shot in the dark: Veteran actor refuses financial help to background dancer
Often spotted at charity events, this veteran actor is easily perceived as the go-to guy for help in times of distress, but turns out, he isn't all that magnanimous. When a '70s background dancer approached him for financial assistance for a medical emergency, he outright refused to offer any help.
An eyewitness says, "The actor was shooting at a suburban studio when an old lady entered the set. She enquired if the actor was available and narrated her ordeal to the production members. She said she had worked with the actor in many films as a background dancer and is now in urgent need of money for her daughter's surgery."
As soon as the actor saw her waiting by his vanity van, he got upset. "She told him that she had gone to his house but could not meet him. Later, when she learned that the actor was shooting at that particular studio, she landed there to seek financial help. However, the actor is known for his strict nature and straight forward attitude. He did not think twice before turning her down. The woman then left the set, teary-eyed," adds the source.
Another source says the actor wasn't sure if it was a genuine request for help and so, he shouldn't be blamed.
