After Utsav Chakraborty and Gursimran Khamba, Sacred Games writer and comedian Varun Grover has accused of sexual harassment. The survivor took to social media and narrated the incident, after which, Varun denied all the allegations. Taking it to social media, Grover tweeted, “I completely, totally, categorically deny all the allegations being made. The screenshot in question is untrue, misleading, and defamatory to say the least. Issuing a detailed statement soon.”

He captioned his detailed statement as, “Here's my detailed statement about the completely fabricated, misleading, and defamatory allegations against me. Am absolutely willing to cooperate and clear my name. Let's not allow such agenda-driven tactics to derail this movement please.”

Varun Grover has found support in Anurag Kashyap, Swara Bhasker and Neeraj Ghaywan. Anurag wrote, “This man I have known so closely and so so long that I refuse to believe any allegations about him . #believethevictim and investigate the claims and also be careful to not let vested interests sabotage a long pending genuine movement”

Masaan director Neeraj Ghaywan tweeted, “I know Varun for the large part of my life. I can never believe he would do such a thing. Never. Those allegations reek of vindictive behavior and not a shred of truth in them. Absolutely, 100%, in solidarity with his statement below.”

He further wrote, “It's appalling how such slanderous allegations are trying to sabotage the #MeToo movement in India. Varun is someone who is truly putting his weight and career behind for this movement. It is horribly irresponsible of whoever is behind this to malign him.”

“Of course, my response is emotional and it is totally fair to discount it. This is my truth, what I believe in and I wanted to put it out there. You can wait for the truth to come in due course.”

Swara Bhasker wrote, “It is imperative that anonymous accounts be discouraged. Brave women are sharing their names and stories, enabling other women to speak up. We need thorough, investigative journalism that questions both alleged perpetrators & victims & corroborates stories & fact finds. #MeToo”
