Javed Akhtar: Rajkumar Hirani is the most decent person I have come across in my 5 decades career
Ever since Rajkumar Hirani’s name made its way to the alleged offenders’ list in the ongoing #MeToo movement, everyone has been shocked. While some celebs like Emraan Hashmi refused to comment on the issue, there were also others like Boney Kapoor who came out in support of Hirani.
Now, veteran lyricist and scriptwriter Javed Akhtar too has come out in support of Rajkumar Hirani. Taking to the micro-blogging site Twitter, Javed posted how in his five-decades long career, he hasn’t come across someone more decent than Hirani. The lyricist even quoted George Bernard Shaw saying, “It is too dangerous to be too good.”
You can check out his post below:
I had come to the film industry in 1965. After so many years if I am asked who are the most decent people you met in this industry over almost 5 decades, perhaps the first name that will come to my mind is RAJU HIRANI. G.B Shaw has said . “ it is too dangerous to be too good”

Earlier expressing his views on the allegations levelled against Rajkumar Hirani, filmmaker Boney Kapoor had told ANI, “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.”
Hirani has been accused of sexual misconduct by the assistant director of ‘Sanju’. The victim alleged that Hirani exploited her over a period of six months and misused his position as a renowned filmmaker.
We hope that a due official inquiry is conducted and the truth comes out soon.
