ControversiesEdit

Verma was the target of a casting couch sting operation which was aired on India TV in March 2005. He was seen begging Suhaib Ilyasi to remove his footage from the sting operation.[2][3] He disappeared from the Bollywood industry after the sting operation and he has recently resurfaced after 5 years by playing small character roles in television. Verma sued India TV CEO Rajat Sharma, programme manager Suhaib Ilyasi and journalist Ruchi, who was involved in the operation, alleging that the channel wanted to "blackmail and extort money" from him.[4]
