Tanushree Dutta‘s revelations about Nana Patekar have brought many worms out of the can. While some came in support of the actress, a few bigwigs refrained from speaking out. The controversy has given other women from the fraternity the courage to share their #MeToo stories. Vikas Bahl, Rajat Kapoor, Kailash Kher and Alok Nath among others have come to light.

Arjun Kapoor who is busy promoting ‘Namaste England’ opened up on the misuse of power in the film industry. In an interview with interaction with Zoom TV, Arjun said, “When you take the power for granted, when you take this profession for granted, when you take the opposite sex for granted, you feel they will be suppressed and they will keep quiet – I think Phantom will always be an example for all those people who feel they can get away because you can’t get away.”

Arjun also said that he hasn’t worked with Phantom and has his own reasons.  “I haven’t worked with them in the past which is not relevant anymore because the company doesn’t exist. I think somewhere the company doesn’t exist anymore is because this has been going on behind the scenes for so long,” he said.

He was also shocked by the fact that Phantom Films’ lack of a HR department when they are making films of worth hundreds of crores. He said, “I think they are all educated people in the company – me being an 11th fail knows how important an HR is when you set up a company and you have people working in it.”
