Tanushree Dutta’s allegations against Nana Patekar have opened up a can of worms. Triggering a domino effect, the #MeToo movement finally seems to be mustering a momentum in India with accusations being levelled against some powerful personalities.

A Twitter user shared a post recently where several women have accused the actor and director Rajat Kapoor of sexual misconduct.


A survivor describes an incident where he tried to repeatedly kiss her when she was 20 years old.

Earlier, the Twitter user had written about two separate accounts of sexual harassment.

A journalist has claimed during her telephonic interview with Kapoor, he asked her about her vital statistics and if she’s as sexy as she sounds. She added that she believed, his friend Saurabh Shukla was aware of the incident and that he may have been preying on younger women too.

Another woman opened up about an incident where the actor kept calling her for a film's shoot and asked her if she knew an empty house, where he wanted to shoot alone with her.


The actor went on to apologise on Twitter.
