Aamir Khan, who had quit Gulshan Kumar’s biopic Mogul, after sexual harassment charges were levelled against its director Subhash Kapoor, shocked everyone as he took a u-turn and returned to the project, with Subhash at helm. Tanushree Dutta, who is leading the #MeToo movement in India, slammed Aamir for being ‘compassionate’ towards Kapoor.
In an interview, Aamir revealed that he has returned to the project as seeing Kapoor, who hasn’t been pronounced guilty yet, getting deprived of his livelihood was making him feel guilty and giving him sleepless nights. Aamir’s decision hasn’t gone down well with Tanushree. The actress severely criticized the superstar and asked ‘How come nobody in Bollywood has sleepless nights when a woman becomes a victim of abuse and is not able to work due to the trauma and ostracisation?”
She stated that compassion should be universal and not just for ‘creepy men’. The former beauty queen said that this selective compassion is not compassion but ‘convenience and ignorance’. The actress, who had accused Nana Patekar, of sexually harassing her on the sets of Horn Ok Pleasssss, in 2008, wondered why Aamir showed no compassion towards her.
Actress Geetika Tyagi, who had accused Subhash of sexual misconduct, has also expressed disappointment and said that it would have been a ‘fair game’ had Aamir considered both the sides of the story.
"With Masters in Mass Communications, this former beauty queen has an opinion on just about everything under the sun and even beyond that. Her passion for writing and everything that spells films and fashion, are the reasons why she made a career in entertainment journalism"
