After Tanushree Dutta renewed a decade old sexual harassment case against Nana Patekar, a lot of women came out in the open naming and shaming their sexual predators. In the wake of the Me Too Movement, a lot of prominent personalities have come under the scanner for their sexual misconduct. From Vikas Bahl, Sajid Khan, Anu Malik, Kailash Kher, Subhash Kapoor, Subhash Ghai to Jatin Das, a lot of celebs have been accused of sexual harassment.

Few weeks back, director Subhash Ghai was accused by a woman for sexually harassing her, drugging and raping her. However, the director denied any such accusation and also threatened to press charges of defamation against her. In a statement, Subhash Ghai had said that it is very sad that it has become a fashion to malign anyone known and bring some stories from the past with half or no truth to it. Thereafter, model Kate Sharma too had leveled accusation against the director for sexually harassing her and Kate had gone to the DN Nagar Police Station to file a complaint against the director.

After the complaint filed by Kate, today, we have learned that the police found no substance in the allegations made by her against the director. In the closure report, it is stated that ‘the complainant with the intention of breaking into the film industry took advantage of the birthday photographs taken at the office of Subhash Ghai and uploaded them on her Facebook account and made the same available to Tehlka a YouTube channel claiming incorrectly that she was being launched in Subhash Ghai’s next film Aitraz 2. Subhash Ghai was upset over this fake news and stopped communicating with Kate Sharma and Yogesh Sardana which upset the complainant and hence made allegations against Subhash Ghai. Later, Kate gave the reason of her mother’s illness and withdrew her complaint stating that she had no further complaints. Since no substance was found in the allegations made by the complainant the matter has been closed.’

Ghai, in his post, had stated, “I am a great supporter of the Me Too movement and women empowerment but hope that those taking undue advantage of the movement do not end up diluting it for their own short time fame. I feel grief if someone is trying to harm my reputation. Anyway, my lawyers will take care of the matter.”



Love and care mom :(
