It has been weeks that the #MeToo movement had taken a back seat in the country. The wave had slowly eased down and there were fewer #MeToo stories coming out. And it came as a shock when a woman accused the filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani of se*ual harassment. Hirani has already denied all such allegations on him. And now he is getting support from the people of the industry.

Actress Dia Mirza, who has worked with him recently in the film Sanju, said in a statement, “I am deeply distressed by this news. As someone who has known and respect Raju Sir for 15 years, I can only hope that a due official enquiry is conducted. He is one of the most decent human beings I have ever worked with and I think it would be grossly unjust on my part to speak on this as I do not know the details. ” she has said in wake of the sexual misconduct row against Hirani.”
The actor Sharman Joshi, who has been a part of Hirani’s 3 Idiots, also extended his support to the filmmaker. In his tweet, he shared his statement which says, “Raju Sir, is a man of immense integrity, character honour, compassion and truthfulness, all the virtues one would imagine are non existent in people today, someone I am absolutely inspired by and have learnt from and because of whom I believe I have gone onto being a better person, all I want to say Sir is that this too shall pass and I can imagine how demeaning how it might be to even stand up for yourself in a situation such as this.”
