#MeToo: Subhash Ghai ‘firmly’ denies allegations of sexual misconduct

New Delhi: Acclaimed filmmaker Subhash Ghai, who was recently accused of harassment by a woman on social media, has firmly denied the claims.

In a statement, the 73-year-old said it is sad that is becoming a fashion to malign anyone known “by bringing stories from the past without truth or half truth. I deny, strictly and firmly, all false allegations like these.”

He stated he has always respected every woman in his life and at work place. Ghai also said that the complainant should go to the court of law and prove her allegations, otherwise he will file a defamation case against the latter.

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, which gained pace in India after Tanushree Dutta accused Nata Patekar of harassing her, accusations are being levelled against many personalities in media and the entertainment industry, including Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath and Rajat Kapoor.
