He also called the movie's cast as being 'complicit' with Khan's behaviour
Mumbai: In light of the #MeToo movement, tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi has also come forward to give his take on the sexual harassment allegations levelled against filmmaker Sajid Khan.
Bhupathi's wife, actor Lara Dutta, was a part of the Housefull cast and reportedly shared her experience on the film set. According to a First Post report, he said, "When we were dating she was shooting for Housefull and we were in London at that time. She would come home and her closest friend was her hair dresser and they both would be complaining about how one of her co-stars was being treated by the director. Rude, vulgar."
Bhupathi also voiced the opinion of many netizens who are blaming people associated with Khan of encouraging his sexual misconduct. The 44-year-old sportsman said, "I told her (Lara) you guys are all complicit, all the four of you who were in the film (and) were listening to what he was saying and not telling him it's not okay. So at some level, you guys are complicit and she agreed."
