Vicky Kaushal’s father Sham Kaushal apologises on Twitter for sexual misconduct
Tanushree Dutta has given the guts to every woman who has been sexually harassed. It has brought a tsunami in the entire industry. Big names like Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Bhushan Kumar, Mukesh Chhabra and Vicky Kaushal’s father Sham Kaushal are among the accused.
It really came as a shock to us when ‘Sanju’ star Vicky Kaushal’s father, who is an action director, was allegedly involved in a sexual misconduct case with an assistant director during an outdoor shoot of a film. Nameeta Prakash, the victim who has worked as an assistant director in films such as ‘Manorama Six Feet Under’, ‘Ab Tak Chhappan’ and ‘Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.’, alleged that during an outdoor shoot in 2006, Sham Kaushal had asked her to join him in his room to drink vodka and showed her a porn clip. Here’s her full statement.
