In a series of screenshots made public on Twitter, an anonymous woman details of her assault against the director
Mumbai: Filmmaker Subhash Ghai is the latest to get hit by the #MeToo movement storm. In a series of screenshots shared on Twitter, a former employee of the director shared how he drugged and raped her.
“He said he would be my mentor and would guide me in the film industry. I listened to cos I had no Godfather in the film industry and no friends. I was new to Mumbai. But I was hungry to learn and to prove to my parents that being a director was my true calling,” the accuser wrote.

The anonymous woman also wrote, “I’ve never seen him or spoken to him” but “once he was shooting somewhere n I was travelling with some friends along that route n we briefly spurred on the sets. The entire crew knew me. But I was so uncomfortable that I left immediately. These things never go away. But hey it happened to me too.”

Ghai responded to the allegations terming #MeToo as 'a fashion'. He told PTI, "If she claims this way, she should go to the court of law and prove it. Justice will be done or I will go for defamation certainly."
