The actor has responded to allegations that he made his Kizie Aur Manny co-star uncomfortable, with his "over-friendliness"
Mumbai: While unconfirmed reports of actor Sushant Singh Rajput making his co-star Sanjana Sanghi uncomfortable have been doing the rounds for a while, the news gathered speed with the recent #MeToo movement.
According to a DNAAfterHrs report: “Sushant was trying to be ‘extra-friendly’ towards newbie Sanjana Sanghi. On one occasion, she seemed to have got uncomfortable and apparently brought it to the notice of her parents, who reportedly told her to return to the set only if she felt she should. One hears that as of now, shooting has come to a standstill.”
Though Sanghi is yet to confirm the allegations, this did not stop the Twitterati to go into overdrive and accuse the actor of harassing her.
This witch-hunt forced the 32-year-old actor to tweet screenshots writing, “I feel sad to reveal personal information but it seems that there is no other way to state what was, in the midst of this curated and well timed smear campaign. From the first till the last day of the shoot, this is what happened on the Set with Sanjana."

Director of the movie, Mukesh Chabra, also tweeted supporting the actor. Ironically, he himself has been suspended from the movie after being called out by two anonymous aspiring actresses in their #MeToo stories.
I totally stand by @itsSSR - no such incident happened on the sets and let's not have a Twitter trial and make an innocent person suffer for somebody else's ulterior motives I had clarified this on twitter long back and I still maintain it . https://t.co/aIzoEq0Xrj— Mukesh Chhabra CSA (@CastingChhabra) October 18, 2018
