Rajkummar Rao: I fully stand by the decision of revoking Rajkumar Hirani’s credit from ‘ELKDTAL’
It came as a shock to us when director Rajkumar Hirani was accused of sexual misconduct. While reacting to the allegations, Rajkummar Rao has said in an interview to HuffPost India that fair investigations need to be conducted on the allegations of sexual misconduct against the director.
Rajkummar also supports the decision that the team of ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ revoked Rajkumar Hirani’s credit as the director of the film. Raj said, “It was absolutely shocking when I read the article. The ‘Ek Ladki Ko…’ team took the decision to revoke his credit from the film and I fully respect and stand by that decision.”
“Whenever such an allegation comes out, there has to be an investigation where both parties put their points across. It’s only then we can conclusively pass an informed judgement,” added Raj.
For the unversed, Mr. Hirani has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman on the sets of ‘Sanju’. As per the accusations, the woman was assaulted between March 2018 and September 2018, when she was working for ‘Sanju’. At that time, her father was battling a terminal illness and then he passed away. Three other friends of the woman also confirmed with her testimony against Rajkumar Hirani.
Meanwhile, Hirani has denied all the allegations against him. His lawyer (Anand Desai) told Huff Post India, “At the outset, our client states that the allegations made against him are false, mischievous, scandalous, motivated and defamatory.”
