Over the last few days, many instances of sexual harassment have come out in the open and those who have been accused includes big Bollywood names such as Rajat Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath and Varun Grover. They have all been accused of sexually harassing women. While regular updates have been coming in for each one of these cases, that for Rajat Kapoor were from two women; one of which also went on to allege that he asked her for her body measurements.

While Rajat did go on to issue an apology and a lot was said in the tweet, looks like that wasn’t the end of it. Later on, a journalist posted a number of screenshots explaining the entire incident that was shared with her on grounds of being anonymous. What was all the more disgusting is how she (the accuser) considered Rajat to be her idol. She further mentioned that she was merely 19 when he touched her inappropriately while he hugged her.

In his apology, here’s what the actor had stated:

Gradually, the two of them connected on Facebook and Rajat would send her lewd texts and call her a ‘Little B****h’ asking her to call him her master.

With every passing day, the MeToo movement seems to be getting a new face to both, the accused and the accuser. While many celebrities have indeed come out in support, some continue to remain mum about it. All of this comes right after the charges Tanushree Dutta has levelled against Nana Patekar.

In light of these incidents, the screening of Rajat Kapoor’s film has been delisted from the Jio MAMI Film festival.

I am so happy that women are speaking out. I only hope that this movement doesn't get suppressed. Big guns of Bollywood have been indulging in exploiting women - famous director of yester-years (now dead), superstar(s) past and present have lots of skeletons in their closet. Who will speak about them? Who will bell the cat?

Is this a Meetoo movement or #kiki challenge that everyone is following

Oh God! I liked him till this incident!!

He is a creep but he used to call the girl is his little bitch and all the sexual innuendos he threw around, while the girl could've bluntly asked him to STFU, but kept being nice and he persisted. She didn't resist his sexting and even met him , he took that as a green flag. Women should be taught how to maintain boundaries.

Hey you disgusting piece of shit! it was Rajat who shouldn't have done anything of that sort in the first place. Where do you learn such things when you say the girls should maintain their boundaries? I feel sorry for your daughter already, hope you never reproduce!

What a creep. How could you be so horny even after your twenty's. I'm in my mid twenties and I don't even find sex that interesting. It feels normal. It's way too glorified and overrated in my opinion, but I guess you should gain enough self control by the age that this creep is. Blasphemy!

Gosh, I loved this man only until this.. The last time the girl came out it still didn't look that serious enough and could still pass as wooing.. But this is total nuts.. Another creep is outta the bag!!

I remember the film Monsoon Wedding very clearly, his character a child molester namedTej Puri gave me the creeps. In Kapoor & Sons too, he "plays" a man who cannot stop seeing "the other woman" in spite of bringing grief to his wife and sons. It seems as though art imitates life more often than we know it.
