Ranbir Kapoor’s film “Sanju” director Rajkumar Hirani is facing serious allegations of sexual harassment. The woman who accused him is an Assistant Director of the blockbuster movie “Sanju” released in 2018. The woman says that Hirani had sexually abused her several times between 6 months (March to September 2018). This harassment happened during the post production of Sanju. Sanju is a film based on Sanjay Dutt’s life.
According to the report of the Huffington Post, the woman has given information on Sanju’s co-producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, in this case. Shee has also marked Vidhu’s wife Anupama Chopra, Scriptwriter Abhijit Joshi, Vidhu’s sister and director Shelley Chopra. As far as the Rajkumar’s answer is concerned, he has denied all allegations of the woman through his lawyer Anand Desai. Desai told Huffington Post, “All the charges against my client are false, baseless and conspicuous, their purpose is to malign their image.”
On the other hand, in the mail, the woman said, “Rajkumar has made a bold comment on April 9, 2018. After that, he tried to forcefully coerce her in house and office. She remained silent till she could not bear it anymore, because she did not want to lose my job. ”
The woman said, “I was silent because there was fear of being unemployed.” If Hirani says that my work is not good then everyone listens to him. My future gets worse. “
On the other hand, according to a report from Bollywood Life, when Hirani was questioned about this, he shared screenshots and printouts of chat with the women instead of answering it. His lawyer said, “The conversation tells me that the charges against my client are on the basis of which questions are being raised in your mind, these charges are false and baseless.” However, Anupama, wife of Vidhu Vinod Chopra, has confirmed that she has received the mail and the woman has given her side of the story.
Anupama Chopra said, “She has met the victim twice and has assured full help.” They have also suggested to the girl that she needs help at the legal level. In the entire case, the writer of the story written for Rajkumar Hirani’s film said, “It is my responsibility to listen to the words of a woman, I am ready to support her. I will try to do my best. I will do what is rightfully legal. “
