TV actress Kate Sharma withdraws sexual harassment case against filmmaker Subhash Ghai
The #MeToo movement had taken Bollywood by storm, and several big names like Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath, Rajat Kapoor and Subhash Ghai were accused of sexual harassment. TV actress Kate Sharma, who had accused Ghai of pulling her into a dark room and trying to kiss her, has withdrawn her complaint citing personal reasons.
In an interview to Mid-Day, Kate said, “Yes, I have informed the Mumbai police that I want to withdraw my complaint against Subhash Ghai. I want to take care of my family and my ailing mother instead of roaming here and there to get justice for whatever has happened to me.”

Don’t want anything from anyone , neither wanted to get into traumas and shocks, Entire #metoo campaign became fun and entertainment for India,I don’t want to be a part of fun. It was a courageous step, ending it into people started calling me by the name “me too” In all of this,Most important is my mother and her health , No damn justice I ll get ,if I ll lose her because of all this depressing things.. Focusing on career and family is only the healing. Live and let’s move on. Thankyou everyone.
The actress also said that despite FIRs being filed, no one has been arrested in the wake of the #MeToo movement. She also said that Ghai and her had been friends, but the director destroyed it all with his behaviour.
In his defense, Ghai put out a statement on Twitter saying, “I am surely a great supporter of the me too movement and women empowerment but hope that those taking undue advantage of the movement do not end up diluting it for their own short time fame. I feel grief if some one trying to harm my reputation. Any way my lawyers will take care of matter.”
While we don’t want to pass judgement on the matter, we hope that justice gets served in quick time in matters such as these.
