Web Desk: Bollywood actor Aamir Khan has announced his departure from an upcoming project, saying that he has been informed of ‘sexual misconduct’ on the part of a collaborator, reported Hindustantimes.
The director of Gulshan Kumar biopic Mogul, Subash Kapoor, was accused of molesting a woman.
Aamir Khan and his wife said, “Aamir Khan Productions we have always had a zero-tolerance policy towards sexual misconduct and predatory behavior of any kind.”
“We believe that this is an opportunity for the film industry to introspect and take concrete steps towards change. For far too long women have faced the brunt of sexual exploitation. It has to stop,” they added.
