TV actress Kate Sharma who filed a sexual harassment case against filmmaker Subhash Ghai has withdrawn it. The actress said that she is ‘fed up’ of the way her case has been handled. She said that she wants to take care of her ailing mother and that her family has been quite disturbed after she leveled sexual harassment case against the filmmaker.
In a conversation with Mid-Day, she said, “Yes, I have informed the Mumbai police that I want to withdraw my complaint against Subhash Ghai. I want to take care of my family and my ailing mother instead of roaming here and there to get justice for whatever has happened to me.”

She further said, “People are really making fun of the entire #MeToo campaign. Nothing has happened, nobody has been arrested. If cops are only busy registering FIRs, then what is the use of this entire campaign? Tell me, how many people have been arrested? Cops asked me if I wanted to register an FIR, but I don’t see any reason for moving ahead to get justice as whatever I had to say is in the public domain. We (Ghai and her) were very good friends, but he destroyed everything; I’ve said this publicly and I’m saying it again. I am fed up of everything, hence I have withdrawn my case.”
Last month, the 26-year-old girl alleged that “He called me at his house on August 6. 5-6 people were present there, he asked me to give him massage. I massaged him and went to wash my hands, he followed me, called me to his room to talk and tried to kiss me.”
Responding to the complaint, Ghai then tweeted, “I am surely a great supporter of the me too movement and women empowerment but hope that those taking undue advantage of the movement do not end up diluting it for their own short time fame. I feel grief if some one trying to harm my reputation. Any way my lawyers will take care of matter.”
