#MeToo fallout: Aamir Khan walks out of film as ‘someone’ associated has been accused of sexual harassment
Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan on Wednesday stepped away from a film, as "someone" associated with it has been accused of sexual misconduct. Aamir and his wife Kiran Rao, who run production company Aamir Khan Productions, issued a statement late on Wednesday.
"Two weeks ago, when traumatic #MeToo stories began emerging, it was brought to our attention that someone we were about to begin work with has been accused of sexual misconduct. Upon enquiry we found that this particular case is sub judice and that the legal process is in motion.
"We are not an investigative agency, nor are we in any position to pass judgment on anyone -- that is for the police and judiciary to do. So, without casting any aspersions on anyone involved in this case, and without coming to any conclusions about these specific allegations, we have decided to step away from this film," read the statement posted by Aamir in Twitter.
Do you know Abhishek Bachchan tied Karan Johar and Shweta Bachchan to a tree and left? Read details inside
We all know Abhishek’s sense of humor is class apart and so is his way of putting the other person in a tough spot. Recently, Junior Bachchan called as a celebrity guest in Karan Johar’s radio show 'Calling Karan' and called the filmmaker a complete megalomaniac.
Abhishek said, "I have a question for you. I have a friend who is about six years elder to me, who is a complete megalomaniac and has all these people around him who are just sycophants and the only thing they do all day is ‘Jay Jaykar’ of Karan Johar. So, I just want to know, how does it feel to be that person and when you were young and tied up to the tree with my sister (Shweta Bachchan Nanda), did you think you would become this megalomaniac when you grow up? Thank you, this is Abhishek by the way."
Karan Johar, evidently aware where the conversation is going, answered, "How I knew AB that you were going exactly there? Firstly, I have some information that I have to correct. I am not six years older than you, I am four years older than you. So, stop trying to increase my age and make yourself feel younger. Secondly, that is far from true. I am nowhere close to being a megalomaniac because you very well know I surround myself with 'no' people more than 'yes' people. That’s the only way to do your job well. And, for you, I knew you have nothing nice to ever say about me, Abhishek. You only say those behind my back, which is actually kind of cool like that. Yes, you have something else to ask?"

After Aamir Khan’s decision to exit Gulshan Kumar biopic, Subhash Kapoor says ‘will prove my innocence in court’
Since #MeToo movement is on a rise in the country, many Bollywood celebrities have come forward in support of women and their traumatizing experiences. While some are extending their support by encouraging them to speak up, others celebrities are trying to take a stand in their own way against people involved in sexual harassment. One such actor is superstar Aamir Khan who was all set to produce Gulshan Kumar Biopic Mogul but decided to exit the project owing to an earlier sexual misconduct allegation against the film’s director Subhash Kapoor.
Subhash Kapoor was accused by actress Geetika Tyagi in 2014 of sexual harassment and when Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao got to know about it, they decided to leave the film. Now, director Subhash Kapoor has also reacted on Aamir Khan’s decision and has said that he will prove himself innocent in the court. Talking to Indian Express, Kapoor said, “I understand and respect Aamir Khan’s and Kiran Rao’s decision. Since matter is subjudice, I intend to prove my innocence in the court of law. But I do want to raise a question – is secretly filming a crying woman without her consent and knowledge and uploading it on social media not harassment or abuse? Or is it fine if she is related to someone who is “accused” of a misconduct. If your answer is latter then for me it’s nothing less than a khaap panchayat mentality.”
