Bhushan Kumar accused of sexual harassment
Earlier in October, an unnamed woman claimed on Twitter that Kumar had called her to a bungalow for a three-film deal and threatened to destroy her career if she refused. “I was new and I was scared, very scared!! The next day i got to know that i was dropped from the film bcoz i had refused to sleep with the ‘boss’, said the anonymous account.
However, Bhushan denies all the allegations, in a statement, he said, “I am appalled and anguished to know that my name has been dragged in this metoo by some anonymous person(s). The allegations against me are bad on the face of it. I have enjoyed an impeccable reputation and have always maintained professionalism. The tweet has been used as a tool to defame me and malign my reputation. I have taken this allegation very seriously and lodging a complaint with the cyber cell of the Mumbai Police to track the mysterious people(s) whose twitter handles have disappeared within seconds of uploading the malicious tweet. I’ll take all such actions as I will be legally advised.”
As part of India’s MeToo movement, a number of celebrities have been called out as sexual predators.
