Sushant Singh Rajput has THIS to say on the #MeToo controversy
#MeToo controversy might have slowed down in recent times, but the movement exposed many of the Bollywood’s biggest stars. It all started with actress Tanushree Dutta levelling allegations against Nana Patekar of sexual harassment on the sets of ‘Horn OK Pleassss’ in 2008. Then, it all unraveled and many names were accused of sexual misconduct at work place.
Now, Sushant Singh Rajput has broken his silence on his name being involved in the controversy. The ‘Kedarnath’ actor in an interview to Mid-Day made his position quite clear. According to reports, Sushant was accused of harassment by his co-star Sanjana Sanghi during the shoot of ‘Kizie Aur Manny’. Though, both denied the reports of any such thing taking place.
Sushant Singh Rajput said, “It was paradoxical because it [the #MeToo movement] was something that I stand for. I happened to be one of the intentional and strategic casualties. Many paid campaigners were used to give it a burst. I felt bad and misunderstood. The more it gets written about, the more it damages my reputation, which I have worked hard to build. The movement is a good thing. It is all about changing mindsets.”
‘Kizie Aur Manny’s director Mukesh Chhabra was also suspended from the project due to sexual harassment allegations. Apparently, Mukesh has returned on the sets to resume shooting.
