Bhubaneswar: Police have lodged an FIR against Ollywood actor Pintu Nanda and two of his associates for allegedly demanding sexual favours from a woman in return for being cast in films.

The FIR was lodged after the woman lodged a complaint at Nayapali Police Station here on Wednesday evening.

The complainant told police: “I was scheduled to act with Pintu Nanda in a program at CDA, Cuttack. But it was cancelled and the location was changed to Patia and then to Nayapali. I went to Nayapali. But the shooting could not take place even after waiting for a long time.
