In the wake of ongoing #MeToo movement in India, T-series head honcho Bhushan Kumar was accused of sexual misconduct by an anonymous Twitter user. Soon, he issued a statement refusing all the allegations. Now, his wife Divya Khosla Kumar has come out in her support stating that he is a man full of values and principles. She said that ‘people even stood against Lord Krishna who’s praiseworthy’.
After Bhushan was alleged of sexual misconduct, he said in a statement to PTI, “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.”

The producer has also lodged a complaint with the cyber cell of the Mumbai Police.
From Vikas Bahl to Alok Nath, many big names stand accused of harassment as India’s #MeToo movement picks up steam. The movement has gained momentum and is gaining support in our country with stars like Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan backing out from the films these people was part of.
Aamir released an official statement announcing that he was no longer associated with Mogul, a T-series film, until director Subhash Kapoor, who’s accused of rape by an actress, is found non-guilty. On the other hand, Akshay also requested producers of Housefull 4 to cancel the shooting until Sajid Khan and Nana Patekar, are proven non-guilty in the sexual harassment cases against them.
Hrithik Roshan, whose next film, Super 30, is directed by Vikas Bahl, tweeted, “It is impossible for me to work with any person if he/she is guilty of such grave misconduct. I am away and have access to only sporadic information. I have requested the producers of Super 30 to take stock of the apparent facts and take a harsh stand if need be. this is not to be hushed or brushed under the carpet. All proven offenders must be punished and all exploited people must be empowered and given strength to speak up.”
