After Nana Pateka, Vikas Bahl and a few more, Kapoor and Sons actor, Rajat Kapoor has been accused by not 1 but 3 women for sexual misconduct. According to a report in FirstPost, journalist Sandhya Menon, who has been an active part of India's #MeToo movement, posted screenshots of the messages she had received from two women, complaining about Rajat’s inappropriate behaviour.

Another US-based actor-model has accused Kapoor of harassing her by calling her incessantly after the two met and spoke briefly during a professional meeting.
Here’s what the Firstpost report states:
The report further states that the first alleged incident
took place in 2007 wherein the accuser, a former journalist with a leading
daily, was conducting a telephonic interview with Kapoor. During the
conversation, Kapoor veered the conversation in a completely different
direction and made her uncomfortable by asking her questions of a sexual
nature. He even asked her about her body measurements.
What’s more shocking is that Rajat has somewhere accepted
the allegations and even apologised for it on Twitter. His tweet reads, “I am
sorry from the bottom of my heart- and sad that I was the cause of this hurt to
another human being. If there is one thing more important to me than even my
work, it is to be a good human being. And I have tried to be that person. And
now, I will try harder.
Another one read, “All my life I have tried to be a
decent man, to do the right thing. If however, I have slipped and through my
actions or words caused pain or hurt or trauma to absolutely anybody, please
accept my apology.” Well, we wonder how many more names are hidden in the
darkness of this hideous crime, sitting in fear to be out in the light soon.
