Arlette Grao Files A Police Complaint Against Agency, Models Still Await Their Remuneration

Monday, 26 October 2020

After anonymous Instagram handle Diet Sabya reported that talent management company TFM 360 had failed to clear the dues of its models since 2018, the Ashish N Soni co-owned agency had told mid-day that they had "every intention to pay" its team, and were waiting for bills to clear. Four weeks since this paper reported the news, a major chunk of the company's models are still awaiting their remuneration.




After initially sending a legal notice to the company, prime complainant Arlette Grao has now filed a police complaint on behalf of 29 other aggrieved parties as well at the Bandra police station. In her complaint, she has named TFM co-owner Soni, and senior management associates Rishu Bartaria and Preity Venu. Grao's legal counsel Karan Balraj Mehta tells mid-day, "Thirty models have collectively filed a complaint via Arlette. She hasn't filed a case yet, but is in the process of doing so. TFM lawyers had reached out for a settlement, and had shown interest in clearing the dues. But, nothing came out of it eventually. They merely set up a grievance cell to ask aggrieved parties for details of how much they were owed, but they [agency] made no effort thereafter."
