The ongoing #MeToo movement is growing big day by day in our country as the names of various prominent personalities are being unearthed. From Bollywood to politics to journalism to cricket, various names have come forward. One such name is of director Sajid Khan who was accused by a journalist and a budding actor of sexual misconduct. Like Sajid’s cousin, Farhan Akhtar has been facing the heat on social media where people are blaming him of ignorance of Sajid's actions. Shibani Dandekar reacted to the same.
It all started after Farhan Akhtar issued a statement as Sajid’s name also became part of the tainted list. The actor-director also went on to state that he will always listen to the victim. However, in a war of words on Twitter, people started alleging that Sajid’s family were aware of his behaviour. Though Farhan didn’t answer, his rumoured girlfriend Shibani has come out in support of him and is defending him.
It will be interesting to see what Farhan, himself, has to say over the issue.
Talking about the #MeTo movement, names of well-known people like Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath, Abhijit Bhattacharya, Chetan Bhagat, Kailash Kher, Subhash Ghai, Luv Ranjan and others have come forward, accused sexual misconduct.
