Aspiring actor Kate Sharma had levelled sexual harassment allegations against the director during the recent #MeToo movement on social media 

Mumbai: During the tidal wave of sexual harassment allegations levelled against the tod dogs of Bollywood, on was against filmmaker Subhash Ghai. Model-actor Kate Sharma had filed a molestation case against Ghai in October alleging that the 73-year-old filmmaker tried to "forcibly kiss and hug her when he had called her to his house." 

However, a month later Sharma has withdrawn her complaint claiming she was 'fed up' with the way the movement was being handled. Meanwhile, Ghai's team has shared an official statement with us saying that the entire episode was a 'fake news'. The statement quoted the Mumbai Police report that was written in Marathi that 'no substance was found in the allegations.' Take a dekko: 

In an interview with  Mid-Day, Sharma had said, "People are really making fun of the entire #MeToo campaign. Nothing has happened, nobody has been arrested. If cops are only busy registering FIRs, then what is the use of this entire campaign? Tell me, how many people have been arrested? Cops asked me if I wanted to register an FIR, but I don’t see any reason for moving ahead to get justice as whatever I had to say is in the public domain. We (Ghai and her) were very good friends, but he destroyed everything; I’ve said this publicly and I’m saying it again. I am fed up of everything, hence I have withdrawn my case.”
