Seven people have been arrested in relation to the assault case on actor Mahie Mill. In a recent video that has gone viral, producer Sakett Saawhney is heard claiming that the cast and crew of ALTBalaji’s upcoming web show, Fixerwere attacked by drunk goons at a factory shoot, in Mumbai, on Wednesday. According to Sakett, the show’s DOP Santosh Tundyal and director Soham Shah were roughened up, while the female members, including Mahie, were manhandled.  

“We had permissions for the shoot and had paid the location manager. We were shooting from 7 am in the morning. At 4.30 pm, some four drunk people came with rods and sticks. They attacked our crew and said we cannot shoot without their permission. There was no room for discussion,” Sakett says in the video. 

Mahie adds, "They started attacking me but I ran out, and sat in the car. They were beating up people like they were animals."

Sakett added that the police vehicle which arrived on spot refused to help the crew. “Instead, they locked the compound door, asked for money and told us to come to court. They did not let us collect our belongings. This is harassment. We have decided to not file a complaint because they will call the other party, give them an NC (Non-Cognisable crime) and they will be let off on bail.”

As per the latest developments, the police have arrested seven suspects in relation to the incident. The cast and crew are expected to meet Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to discuss the event. Mahie Gill is known for her Dev. D and the Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster franchise.
