Bollywood actor Amir Khan announced his exit from T-Series founder Gulshan Kumar’s biopic after molestation accusations came out against director.
Biopic of Gulshan kumar is directed by Subhash Kapoor. Actor Geetika Tyagi accuse Subhash Kapoor for sexual harassment.
Amir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao release statement on social media.” Aamir Khan Productions we have always had a zero-tolerance policy towards sexual misconduct and predatory behaviour of any kind.” They said they were committed to making the industry a safe place.We believe that this is an opportunity for the film industry to introspect and take concrete steps towards change. For far too long women have faced the brunt of sexual exploitation. It has to stop.” Aamir and Rao also announced that they were distancing themselves from an upcoming project as the said person is accused of sexual misconduct..
Two weeks ago, when traumatic #MeToo stories began emerging, it was brought to our attention that someone we were about to begin work with has been accused of sexual misconduct. Upon enquiry we found that this particular case is sub-judice, and that the legal process is in motion.
We are not an investigative agency, noe are we in any position to pass judgement on anyone – that is for the police and judiciary to do. So without casting any aspersions on anyone involed in this case and without coming to any conclusions about these specfic allegation, We have to decided to step away from this film”
