Jakarta. The set of a horror film has become a real-life nightmare for its two stars. On Saturday, Dewi Persik filed a complaint against co-star Julia Perez with the police in Matraman, East Jakarta. The two are shooting a horror movie, “Arwah Goyang Kerawang” (“Spirits of the Kerawang Dance”).
“We were shooting scenes for the movie,” Dewi said. “As written in the script, I said, ‘Hey, this is not the place where you can sell your body.’ Afterward, I was instructed to push Julia until she fell. But she held on to my ankle and I fell too.”
Dewi and Julia, also known as Jupe, then reportedly slapped and scratched each other.
“I took the initiative to file a complaint after consulting my father and [Ahmad] Dhani, my manager,” Dewi said. “I filed a report with the police, together with a doctor’s report.”
The two women shot to fame as dangdut singers before branching out into acting.
They both have a reputation for being provocative.
