Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film Dil Bechara premiered last night, and netizens are still awestruck with the actor's appearance in the film. The film, that marks the acting debut of Sanjana Sanghi and directorial debut of casting director Mukesh Chhabra, is being applauded by one and all for its heartwarming plot and Sushant-Sanjana’s acting chops. In October 2018, during the #MeToo wave, Sushant was allegedly accused of sexual misconduct charges by Sanjana Sanghi. Clearing the air, Sanjana had then put out the statement on social media stating that ‘no such incident took place.’
Recently, Kangana Ranaut, who’s currently busy firing people, had recently targeted Sanjana for taking her ‘sweet time’ to clarify Me Too accusations against her Dil Bechara co-star. Kangana had tweeted, “Many blinds claimed that Sushant raped Sanjana, such news abt her harassment wr common in those days, Why Sanjana took her own sweet time to clarify? Why she never spoke so passionately abt her friendship with him when he was alive? @mumbaipolice can investigate.”
During the latest interview, when Sanjana was asked about taking time to clear the Me Too allegations against Sushant, she hit back at Kangana and said, ‘nobody is in authority to decide what’s late and what’s not’. Speaking to Zoom TV, Sanjana said, “I have said more than enough about what happened. Also, I’ve given a clarification which should have been enough. At that time, it wasn’t late, nobody is in authority to decide what’s late and what’s not. You don’t fuel rumours. It is not the responsibility or job to clarify rumours. So, we shouldn’t disregard the #MeToo movement by calling it “Me Too” because Me Too is when there’s an actual issue. But when two people are trying to say there’s no issue, that’s not called the Me Too movement that’s rumour mockery and that shows the power of unethical reporting.”
She further added, “I am a student of journalism, I’ve studied at Delhi University and that’s not the journalism I was taught. So, I don’t see it as the Me Too movement. For me apparently getting late in giving clarification for rumours, but I did it still because it was important for us, Sushant and Me.” (ALSO READ: Sushant Singh Rajput’s Dil Bechara Co-Star Sanjana Sanghi Reveals Why It Took Her Time To Clarify On #MeToo Allegations Leveled Against Actor)
