Rajkumar Hirani Accused Under #MeToo, Twitterati Question Bollywood’s Silence

Updated on 31 January, 2019 at 12:07 pm By

#MeToo is the most widespread movement against harassment, which gives assault survivors strength and hope. While the movement began in the US, it has spread to numerous countries across the globe. And all with good reason! It has brought to fore the truth behind the facade of many famous personalities. So, is director Rajkumar Hirani next in the line of predators? It is disappointing to hear of such allegation against some of your favorite celebs. Or worse yet, a celeb that you idealize.

And from the looks of it, Bollywood is currently experiencing similar emotions with Hirani. However, does that mean that Bollywood celebs should completely keep mum on the matter?

 

 

Any and every MeToo allegation thus far has seen celebs make bold statements. In fact, some have even gone as far as saying they will make boycotts. But seems like Bollywood is singing a different tune this time around. For the uninitiated, assistant director for movie Sanju has come out accusing Rajkumar Hirani of assault. Hirani has strongly denied the allegations, calling them fake and mischevious.

Well, Twitterati is clearly taking offense of Bollwyood’s silence on the matter. There are, however, a few celebs who have come out defending Rajkumar Hirani. Actress Dia Mirza for one maintains Hirani is one of the most decent human beings she has ever met. But the actress did reserve judgment on the matter.

Check out the post below reporting:

 

 

Well, a lot is yet to be seen in the matter. There is, however, something worth taking note of. As per reports, the accuser wrote a mail to some Bollywood biggies informing them of the incident. And while the mail is dated November 3, 2018, it is only recently that the matter has come to light.
