With a number of leading faces embroiled in the #MeToo controversy, Subhash Ghai seems to have been caught up in the movement after being accused of sexual harassment.
The veteran filmmaker is now likely to lose the 5.5 acres of land allotted to him by the Maharashtra Government for the establishment of his acting school, according to The Asian Age.
A source told the publication, “It is one thing for casting directors and young directors to be accused of sexual harassment. But for a formidable veteran like Ghai, who has given Indian cinema so many landmark films and launched actors like Jackie Shroff, Madhuri Dixit and Manisha Koirala, this disgrace is a real low blow. It shows the entertainment industry in an awful light. It no longer makes sense to allot land to him for creative purposes.”
The source added, “I have heard about his casting methods. But I have never witnessed them. Are we to forget all that he has contributed to Hindi cinema? What about other great filmmakers, who, as a routine, ask for and get sexual favours?”
