MeToo campaign is gaining strength with each passing day and several sexual abuse stories are coming up. The heat is so much that big-budget films are stalled. Aamir Khan has already walked out of Gulshan Kumar’s biopic ‘Mogul’ as the director of the film Abhishek Kapoor faced sexual abuse allegations. Aamir said that he will not work with the director unless he is free from the charges.
In a recent development, Akshay Kumar has stalled the shoot of his ongoing film ‘Housefull-4’. The director Sajid Khan faced sexual abuse allegations from an assistant director Saloni Chopra, journalist Karishma Upadhyaya. Upon knowing the allegations, Akshay Kumar announced through Twitter that he will not attend the shoot unless the director proves his innocence. 70% of the film shoot has been completed and it is interesting to see how the project will move further now.
With two big-budget star hero films facing the impact of #MeToo allegations, Bollywood is in a state of shock. It is interesting to see how many more films will be stalled in the future because of the #MeToo campaign.
