Yet another Bollywood celebrity has come forward to defend Rajkumar Hirani, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by a woman who worked with him in ‘Sanju’. Rajkumar Hirani is not the first Bollywood celebrity who has been accused of sexual harassment cases following Tanushree Dutta’s accusations against Nana Patekar. Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of the film ‘Horn Ok Pleassss’ in 2018.

Following that, #MeToo campaign gained momentum in India and several women have come forward and shared their #MeToo stories on social media. The latest star in the list is Rajkumar Hirani, who has been accused of sexual harassment. The woman has alleged that Hirani had sexually abused her on multiple occasions between March and September 2018.

Denying allegations, ‘3 Idiots’ director has issued a statement. After Sharman Joshi, Arshad Warsi and Dia Mirza, Boney Kapoor, who have closely worked with Rajkumar Hirani said that it is quite shocking to believe this piece of news.

Talking to news agency ANI, Boney Kapoor said, “Rajkumar Hirani is too good a man to do something like this. I don’t believe this allegation. He can never do something like this.”

In an interview, Arshad Warsi had earlier said, “If you talk to me about Raju Hirani as a person, as a person and how he is, I think he is a wonderful person and a thorough gentleman. So, for me, it’s a shocker as it is for everybody else who has heard this news.”

In the wake of these allegations against Rajkumar Hirani, his name has been removed as a co-producer from the film ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ starring Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Hirani in the lead roles. It is to be noted that, Hirani’s last directorial  ‘Sanju’, did outstanding performance at the box office window.
