The #MeToo movement that was initiated by actress Tanushree Dutta when she accused actor Nana Patekar of sexual misconduct is gaining steam with each passing day. Many men and women are opening up on the subject and shaming the men behind the ghastly act. Names of prominent celebs like Nana Patekar, Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Ganesh Acharya, Alok Nath, Subhash Ghai, Rajat Kapoor and many more have cropped up. Singer Kailash Kher too was accused by multiple women including singer Sona Mohapatra of sexual harassment.

The singer had soon taken to the social media and said that he respects women and ‘his state of happiness’ has been misconstrued.But now in a shocking turn of events, he is threatening parents of the victim who had complained against him. Finally, Ashoke Pandit the President of IFTDA (Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association) took to Twitter to call out Kailash and warned him to stop calling and threatening the parents of the victims who have named and shamed him publicly.

Ashoke Pandit tweeted, “Will request @Kailashkher not to call up parents of those victims who have complained against him and threaten them of sending a legal notice. @ZWattal.”

Sona Mohapatra also slammed Kailash Kher and shared that she will support the victims in every way, even legally and asked them not to be intimidated.

What is your take on Kher threatening the victims rather than apologising for his behaviour?
