The #metoo scandal has taken down with it, several actors, filmmakers and production company executives. One shocking name that emerged was of actor Sushant Singh Rajput who was accused by Sanjana Sanghi, the lead actress in his next film Kizie Aur Manny of inappropriate behaviour.

Sanjana Sanghi accused the 32-year-old actor of behaving badly on the sets saying he made her feel “uncomfortable” with his “overly friendly behaviour” during the shoot in Jodhpur. The deeply embarrassed actor immediately refuted all charges and defended himself. In his defence, he shared screenshots of their SMS conversation and called it a “smear campaign”.

The snapshots contained his conversation with Sanjana from the first day to the last day of the film’s shoot. Sushant further added, “I feel sad to reveal personal information but it seems that there is no other way to state what was, in the midst of this curated and well-timed smear campaign. From the first till the last day of the shoot, this is what happened on the set with Sanjana,” the actor wrote.

 

Soon after, Twitterati pointed at Sushant’s missing blue verification tick on the micro-blogging platform following the claims. However, Sushant clarified, “For all those deliberately using the missing of Twitter ‘blue tick’ to substantiate their false claims, allow me to tell you that it is not there since September 5. Get your facts checked before jumping to conclusions that you so eagerly want to.”

Now Sushant’s Twitter account has gotten back its blue tick and is verified once again after he cleared out and denied all the harassment claims against himself.

The film’s director and popular casting director Mukesh Chhabra also spoke out in support of Sushant. “I totally stand by Sushant. No such incident happened on the sets and let’s not have a Twitter trial and make an innocent person suffer for somebody else’s ulterior motives. I had clarified this on twitter long back and I still maintain it,” Chhabra, who too has been accused by a woman of sexual harassment tweeted.

“I totally stand by @itsSSR – no such incident happened on the sets and let’s not have a Twitter trial and make an innocent person suffer for somebody else’s ulterior motives I had clarified this on twitter long back and I still maintain it.” Mukesh Chhabra tweeted.
