The #MeToo movement has created a havoc in India after many journalists and media personalities have come open and shared their MeToo stories.
It all started with Tanushree Dutta accusing Nana Patekar of sexual misconduct and claimed that the actor touched her inappropriately.
From several stand-up comedians to singers and actors the list goes on and on.
Now there are new additions to the list as filmmaker Sajid Khan and Subhash Ghai are also accused of sexual misconduct and harassment by women.
Sajid Khan has been accused of sexual harassment by his assistant director named Saloni Chopra as she narrated horrific incidents which started from her 2011 job interview with him.
She revealed that during her interview for the assistant director but the director's assistant. Saloni added that Khan would call her at odd hours and asked about clothes she is wearing etc. He also asked me to send bikini pictures of herself so he could see how do I look if I ever became an actress.
Saloni shared her ordeal on microblogging site Twitter, where many other men and women have already shared their #MeToo stories.
Not only Saloni Chopra but few other women have also raised their voice against Sajid Khan.
Filmmaker Subhash Ghai has also been accused of sexual misconduct by a woman. However, Subhash Ghai has denied the claims and told news agency PTI: "It is sad that it is becoming a fashion to malign anyone known, bringing some stories from past without any truth or blown up false allegations if all. I deny strictly and firmly all false allegations like these." In a separate interview to ANI, he reiterated his previous words and added he's always been respectful towards women: "I've always respected every woman in my life and at the workplace."
Subhash Ghai was implicated in the #MeToo allegations after Twitter user Mahima Kukreja, who initially accused AIB's former member Utsav Chakraborty of having sent her pictures of his genitalia, re-shared an account originally narrated to her by a woman, who wished to be unnamed. In her tweet, Ms Kukreja referred to the alleged survivor as "a very credible media/lit personality." The accumulated screenshots shared by Ms Kukreja recounts that Mr Ghai allegedly steered the survivor to his hotel suite after sharing drinks in his car, following which she was allegedly raped and violated.
Sajid Khan is currently shooting Housefull 4 which has Nana Patekar in it too.
