Rajkumar Hirani has been accused of sexual assault by a woman who worked with the filmmaker on Sanju. After the accusation came to light on Sunday, Hirani issued a statement rubbishing the allegation.
“I was completely shocked when these allegations were brought to my notice about two months back. I had suggested immediately that it is essential to take this matter to any committee or any legal body. The complainant has chosen to go to the media instead. I want to very strongly state that this is a false malicious and mischievous story being spread with the sole intention of destroying my reputation,” Hirani’s statement read.
