#MeToo India: Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao step away from a film over allegations of sexual misconduct
11 October, 2018, 20:15
Whether the journalist-turned-director will still be helming "Mogul" or not is still not clear but the film will definitely not be backed by Aamir Khan Productions.
After Aamir Khan's official statement, director Subhash Kapoor also released his statement which read, "I understand and respect Aamir khan's and Kiran Rao's decision".
Aamir Khan, who was going to collaborate with Subhash Kapoor for his upcoming production showed his support for the alleged victim and made a decision to quit the film.
Kiran is also the Chairperson of Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival, which has dropped two movies - Rajat Kapoor's Kadakh and AIB's Chintu Ka Birthday - from its line-up in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against the actor-filmmaker and some members of the comedy collective, reported IANS.
For the ones who do not know, Subhash Kapoor was accused by Geetika Tyagi of molestation in 2014.
Mentioning that spread of MeToo movement, he said that as the traumatic stories are emerging, they got to know that someone they were about to work with has been accused of sexual harassment too.
In 2014, a video, which was apparently taken with a hidden camera had Tyagi, Kapoor and his wife in it.
They believe the #MeToo movement, which has led to people openly calling out those who have indulged in sexual harassment, is an opportunity for the film industry to introspect and take concrete steps towards change. "Upon inquiry we found that this particular case is sub-judice, and that the legal process is in motion", the statement read.
"We are not an investigative agency, nor are we in any position to pass judgment on anyone - that is for the police and judiciary to do".
Confirming that Subhash has been sacked from the project, T-Series chief Bhushan Kumar told the same daily, "It is our foremost duty to make our industry safe for everyone, make an industry that creates environment of equality and a better place to work. If your answer is latter then for me it's nothing less then a khaap panchayat mentality". Kapoor hasn't been named in the statement, which was issued late on Wednesday night by Khan and his wife, Kiran Rao.
"With the ongoing proceedings against the director that is brought to our notice, everyone at T-Series has chose to not work with the director", Bhushan said in a statement to PTI.
The next morning, Kim comes at them over it. "And I think you have it in you, it's just you better evolve before you fizzle out". Hopefully she realizes how tiresome she became, and cares just a little bit less about image moving forward.
