Besides pandemic which brought all the projects(big to small) to an unexpected halt, Bollywood has been fighting back the nepotism and drug cartel that surfaced with the suspicious death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
While the CBI and NCB investigations are still on, the social media wars targeting star kids and celebrities like Kangana Ranaut making groundbreaking revelations made the issue murkier. Certain actors like Rakul moved High Court over the media trail as the majority of the actors chose to remain tightlipped.
Amidst which, another issue surfaced on social media leaving the Bollywood split into two. Demanding justice for her, a faded actress approached Prime Minister Narendra Modi accusing director Anurag Kashyap of indecent behaviour when she went to meet him for work.
National Commission for Women (NCW) chairperson Rekha Sharma as well took cognisance of the actor’s tweet and asked her to send a detailed complaint to the commission, assuring her that they will launch an investigation.
The filmmaker denied all the allegations of sexual assault levelled against him and called it an attempt to silence him. In a series of tweets the ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’ fame director also said that whether it is with his ex-wives, any of his lovers or the women he works with, he neither indulges in nor tolerates such kind of behaviour in public or otherwise.
Meanwhile, social media flooded with posts from celebrities supporting Anurag. Tapsee Pannu, Radhika Apte are amongst the actors who came in Anurag’s support while Kangana took no qualms in breathing fire on well-claimed directors harassing struggling outsiders.
