Director Rajkumar Hirani, who has directed films like 3 Idiots, Sanju, Munnabhai series, PK etc., was recently accused of sexual assault by a woman who worked with the director in his recent flick - Sanju. 

Sanju director Rajkumar Hirani responds to sexual assault allegations

However, Rajkumar Hirani, responding through his lawyer Anand Desai, has categorically denied the allegations.

In an email to Huff Post India, a media organisation, the statement from his team read: “At the outset, our client states that the allegations made against him are false, mischievous, scandalous, motivated and defamatory,”

The woman had apparently mailed Vinod Vidhu Chopra, the co-producer of Sanju, about the incident on November 3. An excerpt from her complaint is as follows: 

“I remember forming these words on my lips - “Sir. This is wrong...Because of this power structure. You being the absolute power and me being a mere assistant, a nobody -  I will never be able to express myself to you. My mind, body and heart were grossly violated that night and for the next 6 months

Stay tuned for further updates on the issue.
