Rajkumar Hirani accused of sexual assault
Rajkumar Hirani, known for coordinating Sanju, PK, 3 Idiots, and Munna Bhai films, has been blamed for rape.
The unfortunate casualty is a lady who worked with the chief on Sanjay Dutt’s biopic. Hirani purportedly explicitly ambushed her in the period among March and September 2018, as indicated by the report.
The charges were made through an email routed to the maker and a normal teammate of Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Film pundit Anupama Chopra, screenwriter Abhijat Joshi and Vidhu Vinod’s sister Shelly Chopra were likewise set apart in the email dated November 3, 2018, the production reports.
The lady said Hirani first made an explicitly suggestive comment on April 9, 2018, and after that attacked her.
Email by the woman read, “I remember forming these words on my lips – “Sir. This is wrong…Because of this power structure. You being the absolute power and me being a mere assistant, a nobody – I will never be able to express myself to you.”
“My mind, body and heart were grossly violated that night and for the next 6 months. I had no choice but to be polite to him,” the woman told HuffPost India. “It was unbearable but the reason I endured it
“I was worried that if I left midway, it would be impossible to find another job in this industry if he were to speak badly about my work,” the woman said. “Because if Hirani said I wasn’t good, everybody would listen. My future would be in jeopardy.”
The film-maker said, “I was completely shocked when these allegations were brought to my notice about two months back. I had suggested immediately that it is essential to take this matter to any committee or legal body. The complainant has chosen to go to the media instead. I want to very strongly state that this is a false malicious and mischievous story being spread with the sole intention of destroying my reputation.”
