Ever since film-maker and the creator of the Munnabhai series Rajkumar Hirani has been accused of sexual harassment, a lot of B-town celebs and especially those who have closely worked with Hirani have come out in the open to defend the director, expressing a sense of shock over the sexual misconduct row. After Dia Mirza, Arshad Warsi, Boney Kapoor and Sharman Joshi, among others, the latest name to come out in the defense of Rajkumar Hirani is Total Dhamaal director Indra Kumar.

In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, Indra Kumar expressed a sense of shock over the allegations levied against Hirani as he said, “I am very shocked, that a gentleman like Rajkumar Hirani has been pulled into the #MeToo movement. I hope that the truth comes out soon. We shouldn't pass judgments at this point.” After Tanushree Dutta renewed a decade-old sexual harassment case against Nana Patekar, a lot of prominent personalities such as Vikas Bahl, Sajid Khan, Subhash Ghai, Anu Malik, Kailash Kher, and Jatin Das among others have come under the scanner for their sexual misconduct and in the latest development, we have film-maker Rajkumari Hirani being accused of sexual harassment. A few days back, Hirani was accused of sexual assault by a woman who worked with him on his 2018 movie Sanju. Although Hirani has issued a statement denying the allegations, the woman, who was an assistant director on the sets of Sanju, has alleged that Hirani sexually abused her more than once between March and September 2018.

In the wake of the allegations against Hirani, his name has been dropped as co-producer from the film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. The film stars Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Hirani in the lead roles. On the work front, Indra Kumar’s last directorial venture was the 2016-film Great Grand Masti, and just a few days back, Indra Kumar wrapped the shooting of his next film titled Total Dhamaal starring Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Ajay Devgn, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi and Esha Gupta among others.

Indra kumar seems creepy himself if you ask me.

All Bollywood biggies must have sat together in last 2-3 days and decided "Ok, it is Hirani now, lets support him, tomorrow any of us can face the same situation as we all have skeletons hidden in our cupboards so then all of us would need each other's help". That's why Boney Kapoor, Javes Akhtar, Indra Kumar, Sharman Joshi (and list goes on...) supported Hirani. But they don't know: This is just the beginning, one by one all will be unmasked.
