Vidhu Vinod Chopra avoids direct reply on the sexual Harassment allegations against Rajkumar Hirani by saying we will talk about when time is right.
During promotional event of his upcoming film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, question was asked about Rajkumar Hirani to this Vidhu Vinod Chopra said, “This stage here is for something else, which is extremely important for us, as important as what you’re talking about. This opportunity we should use to talk about this and that of course, when there is a right time, we will talk about it.”
Both Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra have done many films together. He was even the co-producer of this film as well but his name was dropped from promotional posters when allegations were surfaced.
A co-worker at his production house Rajkumar Hirani Films alleged Mr Hirani that he had abused her during shooting of the film Sanju over a period of six months.
However, the allegations have been denied by the filmmaker in a statement. "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," the filmmaker said in a statement.
