After the Me Too India movement, it seems people are absolutely not in the mood of accepting unacceptable behaviour. As such, a female dance assistant has filed a complaint against popular choreographer Ganesh Acharya.

A report in The Hindu says that the Amboli Police have confirmed that the complainant has said that she was assaulted by two women on command of Acharya. An officer said, “The complainant was at the spot to attend a meeting of the Indian Film and Television Choreographer Association (IFTCA) on Sunday afternoon. She has said in her complaint that Mr. Acharya first had her membership suspended. When she turned up at the meeting to protest against it, he asked two female members from the IFTCA to assault her and throw her out”.

The complainant sent a formal letter to the Maharashtra State Commission for Women stating that Acharya began cutting her fee after the incident, “He also insisted that I become his assistant, but I refused as I wanted to work independently. Whenever I visited his office, he would be watching pornographic videos and even asked me to do the same, saying I would enjoy watching them. I lost my temper and told him to never contact me again”.
