Jharkhand official removed from office for acting in item song

The song depicted various VIPs dancing alongside a scantily-clad woman.

The Jharkhand government on Wednesday removed the Deputy Development Commissioner of Giridih district after he was seen acting in an item song in a locally-produced film.

Dinesh Prasad was asked to report to the Department of Personnel in Ranchi after he acted in a song sequence in an under-production Hindi film Chilkari — Ek Dard. The movie is loosely based on the 2011 massacre of 20 people, including former chief minister Babulal Marandi’s son, by members of the CPI(Maoist) at Chilkari.09


The song depicted various VIPs dancing along with a woman in skimpy clothes. While the roles of the likes of local MLA and DGP were portrayed by professional actors — from nearby villages, Ranchi and West Bengal —Prasad acted as a corrupt DDC. “He participated in the filming as he is enthusiastic about the craft,” said producer of the film Brajmohan Turi, who hails from Giridih. “His part was shot on Monday and someone leaked the information. Thankfully, shooting has continued without interruption,” said Turi.
