Another source has again revealed to Nigeriafilms.com that the same movie producer, Arsenal Bruno is in another mess with another up and coming actress, who this time, was humiliated for not giving in for the sex for movie role gimmicks of the producer.
According to the gist, Bruno gathered top artistes like Annie Macaulay, Tonto Dikeh, Yul Edochie and some budding artistes for a movie shoot in Enugu. He lodged the upcomers at Prince Palace Hotel, Ukporkiti, Enugu, where we learnt this movie producer used as his slaughter house of the naive and desperate wannabe actresses.
Our source revealed to us that Bruno had a problem with one of the girls who refused to open legs for him. As we were told, Bruno asked this Benin City, Edo State-based budding actress named Keshi Thomas to sleep with him before she could get a juicy role in the movie. But as a way of rejecting the offer, Keshi was said to have told Bruno that she was menstruating, which fell into the deaf ears of Bruno as he was said to have insisted on sleeping with Keshi even if she was ‘on’.
When the actress didn’t give in to Bruno insistence, our source revealed that Bruno reduced her role in the movie into a minor. He then later told Keshi that she would be responsible for her hotel and feeding bills while on that set. The source further informed us that Bruno told the hotel manager to throw the actress out of the hotel if she is unable to pay the hotel bills.
When Keshi couldn’t bear the humiliation being meted out on her, she left the movie set.
As at press time, we learnt that every other acts have left the movie set as Bruno could not pay hotel bills of those he lodged at the hotel. Our source later informed us that Bruno even ran away from the movie set and left the director, Bassey Ubong to be detained by the hotel management to clear the bills.
We then learnt that the bill was cleared by one Nollywood big-wig, who is very close to the governor of Enugu state. Yul Edochie, Tonto Dikeh and others have since left the movie set for other movie productions.
