Ashish Patil, who
was working with Yash Raj Films as the Vice President for their brand
partnership and talent management, has been sacked after allegations about him came to the fore in the ongoing #MeToo movement. He was also the Business and
Creative Head for Y-Films.
YRF's Twitter handle shared the news a little while ago. It read, "Yash Raj Film terminates the services of Me Ashish Patil: Vice President - Brand Partnership and Talent Management & Business and Creative Head - Y-Films, with immediate effect (sic)."
Ashish Patil had
been named a few days back. YRF took some time before taking the call. With this
Twitter post, YRF clarifies its stand and goes ahead to terminate his services
Coming to talk of
the #MeToo movement, it has swept across the nation and it's going in full
fervour. People from all walks of life are coming out in the open and speaking
up about having faced sexual harassment, assault or misconduct at their work
place or elsewhere. Ashish Patil is just one of those who have been called
out. Nobody expected that Tanushree Dutta's allegations against Nana
Patekar will snowball into a revolution of sorts.
