Mumbai: T-Series chairman Bhushan Kumar filed a complaint against the anonymous woman who levelled sexual harassment allegations against him.

An unnamed woman had claimed on Twitter that Kumar had called her to a bungalow for a three-film deal and threatened to destroy her career if she refused. “I was new and I was scared, very scared!! The next day i got to know that i was dropped from the film bcoz i had refused to sleep with the ‘boss’,” says the anonymous account.

As part of India’s #MeToo movement, a number of Bollywood celebs have been named by women as sexual predators. T-Series also dropped Subhash Kapoor as the director of its upcoming film, Mogul, earlier this week after an old molestation allegation levelled by actor Girtika Tyagi resurfaced.


Earlier, Kumar responded to the allegations saying, "I am appalled and anguished to know that my name has been dragged in this #MeToo by some anonymous person(s). The allegations against me are bad on the face of it. I have enjoyed an impeccable reputation and have always maintained professionalism. The tweet has been used as a tool to defame me and malign my reputation," Kumar said in a statement to PTI.

He also said, "I have taken this allegation very seriously and lodging a complaint with the cyber cell of the Mumbai Police to track the mysterious people(s) whose twitter handles have disappeared within seconds of uploading the malicious tweet. I'll take all such actions as I will be legally advised."  

Meanwhile, his wife actor-producer Divya Kumar compared the situation to that of Hindu deity Lord Krishna. She had tweeted in his defence, “My husband has got TSeries where it is today purely on basis of extreme hard work. People even stood up against Lord Krishna who’s praiseworthy. Though #MeToo movement is meant to clean up the society, it’s sad that some people have started misusing it.”
