The recent names to join the league of alleged sexual misconduct was Sanju director Rajkumar Hirani. He has however denied all the accusations against him, calling them false and malicious. Some of the Bollywood celebrities, on the other hand, have united to stand with Hirani claiming the accusations to be totally incorrect.

A complaint has been filed against Kumar at Oshiwara police station by one of his female associates, reported ABP Live. The girl who chose to remain anonymous has accused Kumar of sexually harassing her under the pretext of offering a job in his company.
