Kailash Kher was accused of sexual harassment by a number of women including a singer, Sona Mohapatra.
Today, he released a statement apologising on these claims that if anything he did had been misconstrued.
His statement read: “For all those who know me and have come across me, will know how much I respect humanity especially women, even more for the ones working in media since their work is difficult.
I was travelling when I heard the news and got extremely disappointed to know what my state of happiness has been taken for. I am neither aware of the acts that have been mentioned nor remember it.
I am almost all the time in my own simple world, but in case anyone has taken something differently about anything, then it is my sincerest apologies.
My devotion to music is what makes me who I am and I am extremely thankful for the love and support.”
The singer had been earlier accused by a number of journalists, after which singer Sona Mohapatra also dictated her ordeal when she went for coffee with Kailash.
Now, the singer has apologized for his actions being misconstrued and has released a statement regarding the same.
A few days ago, producer Vinta Nanda had accused senior actor Alok Nath of raping her and sexually harassing her.
There has been an increase in the number of women who have come out against the Bollywood personalities.
Subsequently, social media users have called it the start of #MeToo Movement in India.
After instances of sexual harassment by Bollywood have come to light, the movement has gained momentum.
It all started with Tanushree Dutta’s claims against Nana Patekar back in 2008, that lead to a lot of media attention.
