The #TimesUp movement has finally arrived in India. It all started with Tanushree Dutta outing Nana Patekar on his inappropriate behaviour on the sets of Horn OK Pleasssss. Just a week later, an ex-employee of Phantom films gave a detailed interview about how director Vikas Bahl had sexually assaulted her. Later, AIB comedian Utsav Chakraborty was outed for his lewd behaviour with many women online. The list of men who have been exposed for their sexual misconduct continues to increase on a daily basis. Other than Alok Nath and Kailash Kher, another B-Town celebrity who has been called out is Rajat Kapoor. Out of the two women who had taken to Twitter to share their story about Rajat Kapoor, one was a journalist who said he had misbehaved with her on the phone and another stated that he had asked to shoot with her in an empty house. Now, just two days after he posted an apology in reply to these two allegations, a new allegation has surfaced against the actor and the woman has accused him of trying to kiss her not once, but eight times.
Senior journalist Sandhya Menon has taken to sharing such stories on her Twitter handle and she posted the latest accusations about Rajat Kapoor as well. The woman recounted the incident where they used to message each other on Facebook and while she used to address him as sir he used to call her his little bitch. While they had met once in Bandra, then apparently the actor had insisted that he drop her home. She recounts the instances when he tried to kiss her hand, touch her cheeks and tried kissing her around eight times.
Take a look.
It’s genuinely harrowing to even read these accounts. So I can only imagine what it was like to be such a situation.
