Walia, who resides in Malad in Mumbai, said that she has been getting obscene videos and lewd phone calls for a week now. The 53-year-old actor said that she had warned the caller on the phone but he increased the frequency of obscene calls. She approached the police when she could not take the harassment anymore. She was getting the calls from various numbers. Speaking to media, inspector Shirish Gaikwad said the numbers are no longer in operation.

According to Hindustan Times, fashion Shaina NC has also been receiving similar lewd phone calls and messages since last December and has also filed an FIR with the cyber crime cell.
