A women who identifies herself to be the former manager of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has claimed that the Hollywood Producer Harvey Weinstein tried to take an advantage of the globally known Bollywood actresses. He has continued to be in news for many of the sexual assault allegations done towards him.
In one of the comment posted with response to a story published on variety.com, Simone Sheffield wrote I use to manage the Indian actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. And while dealing with Harvey, I came to know how hard it had been for him to try on Aishwarya Alone.
Harvey was a pig, he looked and acted like one big bully pig. He has asked me to leave the meetings many number of times, but it was me who declined in a polite manner. As a former Miss World Aishwarya has worked in many international projects like Pride and Prejudice, Mistress of Spices and the last but not the least The Pink Panther 2.
Sheffield also said that when we were leaving Weinstein office he cornered me and said what do I do in order to get her alone. And the answer to his question was to kiss my black ass. When Ash and I returned back to the hotel, I sent Harvey a steel pig filled with some diet coke as a thank you gift for the entire meeting. Yes do have some business done together but he did not hesitate to threaten me.
He told me that I would not be working any more into this business and blah blah blah.. And in return to what I told him cannot be told here. But yes you can make sure that I never ever gave him the opportunity to come and breathe on his clients. Several other women in Hollywood like Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale, Emma Thompson and Cara Delevingne have come and spoken about the experiences that they have had with him.
Sheffield to this has urged the other women in both the Hollywood and Bollywood to speak the truth. She says protect one another, love one another, and yes don’t forget to support one another. According to her Wikipedia page it is believed and said that Sheffield has been the owner of a well-known company in California which is called as the Canyon Entertainment, and has managed Aishwarya and Bipasha Basu.
