Producer Shai Abramov is suspected of impersonating director and photographer Assaf Sudri ("The Motivator") and auditioning actresses with disturbing sexual text.

Abramov's name was first published by Tamar Kaplansky in Haaretz, after the harassment was first published in Israel Today.

According to the suspicion, a number of actresses received an invitation to audition for a new project by Assaf Sudri.

Some of them came to perform the audition in front of Abramov who impersonated Sudri, and it included a blatantly sexual text.



"Actual producer Shai Abramov was a friend of mine that I have known for years," the agitated Sudri told Walla!

culture.

"He produced with me two days of reenactments in 'The Motive' (the docu-series of Sudri and his partner Tali Shemesh - SB), sat with me, drank coffee.

And wanted to make a short film.

He wanted me to be with him, he brought me his script, and I told him I did not connect with him.

I told him 'go take someone else'.

He continued the production, and asked me, as someone who knows the owner of the now-closed Bialik Cafe, to arrange the place for him to audition there.

I arranged the place for him.

I told him bro, I'll make you some chickpeas, but I can not relate to it.



"I see that he is inviting dozens of actresses there," Sudri continued.

"After a week, she calls Tali, an employee of one of the agencies, and says to her - 'Tell me, Assaf is making a short film?'. She knows that I am her partner and that we have three children. She says, 'What are these disgusting texts he sends to actresses ?!' That he told actors' agencies that there is a short film by Assaf Sudri, and that they want to cast actresses. And all the agencies and actresses think it's Assaf Sudri's project, and actresses are starting to come in. At the same time he sends them texts unrelated to his script, disgusting, sexual texts It's all about my name, from which I understand all this.

"About an hour later, the director calls Tali and tells her - 'Tell me, Assaf is okay? What's wrong with him?'. It turned out that his actress was also invited, and also in my name. And it turned out that while Abramov was auditioning at Cafe Bialik, he was hiding behind a black curtain. The camera, and the actress who comes see no one but only the cast, and he's hiding behind a black curtain. They still think they're coming to my audition. There were some two cases where he came out in the middle, and they said 'wait, but it's not collected', which means they understood It only happened at the end of the audition. And from there it exploded. He invited dozens of actresses and models, sent them these texts, and invited them to his home as well. He waited in some cases in his underwear. I filed a complaint with the police over the weekend about fraud and defamation, and Shaham About sexual harassment against him on behalf of several actresses. "



Uri Rashtik, Shaham's activity center, said:" A few days ago, Shaham received complaints about a producer who allegedly impersonated Assaf Sudri and invited actresses to audition for the project in Assaf's name.

An audition that ostensibly included sexual elements.

Shaham hired the services of Adv. Dror Nahum to deal with the issue and in coordination with Assaf Sudri, we will act on both the civil and criminal levels.

We call on all the actresses who were harmed during this audition to contact the Legal Department at Shaham in order to receive additional information and advice. "



On behalf of Shai Abramov, it was stated: "There is no response. An orderly response will come out later from a lawyer."
