During the media interaction for Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga both Sonam KAhuja(better known as Sonam Kapoor) and Rajkummar Rao were asked about the sexual-harassment allegation against Raj Kumar Hirani.While Sonam took the moderate wait-and-watch stance on the issue, Rao, went all-out with blazing guns demanding an impartial inquiry into the matter.
Apparently the actor was later told by the media/marketing team to curb his opinion on the issue, “if he knows what’s good for him.”
While Rao remains undeterred , a source in the know says, “The only voices one hears in the Hirani MeToo issue are voices defending him. The voices of dissent are quiet because …well, everybody wants to work with Hirani. Rajkummar was asked to go easy with his opinion.He was told to shut up.”
A whole lot of voices from the film industry have come forward to support Hirani.Others like Sanjay Dutt whose association with Hirani through Munnabhai has deeprooted relevancy, have stayed away from making any comment.
