In a shocking turn of events, filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani has been accused of sexual assault by a woman who worked with him on his film Sanju (2017). The woman, who was a crew member of the film, has alleged that the director abused her 'on more than one occasion over a six-month period between March and September 2018'. Hirani, however, has denied all the allegations levelled against him. Many people are taken aback by this development in the #MeToo movement and are still trying to come on terms with it. Amidst all of this, Vinta Nanda, who accused veteran actor, Alok Nath of rape, has reacted to the harassment allegations levelled against Rajkumar Hirani.
Taking to her social media handle, Nanda tweeted, "The latest on #MeToo is so disturbing. Who is it that women can trust? Can't deal with these words anymore " "At the outset, our client states that the allegations made against him are false, mischievous, scandalous, motivated and defamatory."
