Last year, after the Me Too movement hit the Indian shores, Geetika Tyagi’s case of sexual harassment filed against filmmaker Subhash Kapoor also came back in the limelight. As Subhas’ name once again surfaced in the Me Too movement, Aamir Khan who was supposed to work in the director’s ‘Mogul’ immediately distanced himself from the project.

Aamir and his wife Kiran Rao, who were also the co-producer of ‘Mogul’ had said that they have a zero-tolerance policy towards sexual misconduct and predatory behaviour. Subhash was dropped from the film and his contract with T-Series was also terminated.

So two days back when Aamir announced that he is back on the project. And Subhash has been reinstated as the director again. So naturally, this came as a huge shock for everyone supporting the ‘Me Too’ movement out there.

In his latest interview with Hindustan Times, Aamir said that everyone is innocent until proved guilty. And since Subhash has not been declared guilty yet he has all the rights to earn a livelihood. Aamir went on to reveal that he even met a few women who have earlier worked with Subhash Kapoor in order to gauge what kind of person he is. And since they all gave positive reviews, he decided to come back on the project.

Now actress Geetika Tyagi, who had filed the molestation case on Subhash Kapoor, has reacted on this latest announcement of Mr. perfectionist. Talking to Huffington Post, Geetika said, “He (Aamir) never reached out to me. Not once. If you are being so sympathetic, apply the same standards to both men and women? When he took a hard stand in October last year, it was encouraging. The entire country looks up to him. So when he takes a position such as this, it’s bound to have a ripple effect on women who’d be discouraged to talk about sexual trauma.”

Talking about the work opportunity that she had lost ever since she filed the case, Geetika said, “What about the opportunities I lost? The trauma I still suffer? Anyway, to each his own. Structures are designed in a way that protects men. Within this structure, I am doing all that I can. And I will continue to do so. Follow the book.”

We wonder what Aamir has to say about this now? Until then stay tuned for more updates on this story.
