Exclusive: #MeToo accused Rajkumar Hirani under self-imposed house-arrest? Read on for details

Rajkumar Hirani seems to be reeling under the allegations of sexual misconduct that were made against him early this year. Following the complaint made against him by a female member of the technical team of Sanju, the filmmaker’s name was unceremoniously dropped from the credits as the co-producer of Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s recent release, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. While the makers did not confirm at any point that Hirani’s ouster days before the release was due to the #MeToo allegations, they did not deny it either. But besides, losing out on the project, the allegations seem to be taking a heavier toll on Hirani. Even as several like Dia Mirza and Sharman Joshi have stepped up in the filmmaker’s support, the nature of the complaint seems to be weighing heavy on Hirani who has apparently withdrawn from an active social life.

We have learnt that the filmmaker has not stepped out of the house since the allegations have come about. In fact, a neighbour who resides in the same vicinity as Hirani reveals that the filmmaker who used to be a regular with his morning walks has not been seen in a long while now. But that’s not all. Those who did get a glimpse of Hirani have shared that he has lost several kilos and looked visibly harrowed. Our source shared, “Hirani has undoubtedly lost a lot of weight. Since the allegations surfaced, no one has seen him leave the premise. It’s almost like he is under self-imposed house-arrest.”

While the exact nature and the status of the complaint is unclear, we do know that such allegations – not only against Hirani, but also against others – are being taken seriously by the industry. The allegations have led to the ouster of Sajid Khan and Subhash Kapoor from big-budget projects. Sajid was dropped as the director from Housefull 4, while Subhash had to quit Mogul. The accusation against Vikas Bahl had also led to the breaking up of his production house, Phantom Films, that he had co-founded with Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena. The Federation of Western India Cine Employees issued a six-month ban on Alok Nath, who was accused of rape by director Vinta Nanda. What do you have to say about this?

The actors have recently shot for a video that will have them discussing the genesis of Gandhigiri in the film Lage Raho Munna Bhai.

It may have been over a decade to the release of Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), but the concept of Gandhigiri continues to dominate public sentiment. So, when the special segment was getting planned on Gandhi Jayanti, the team decided to turn to the cast of the comedy which is none other than Sanjay Dutt, Vidya Balan, Arshad Warsi, Boman Irani and Dilip Prabhavalkar.

After 13 years the Lage Raho Munna Bhai magic will be seen again and it is going to be an enchanting treat for all the ‘Munna Bhai’ fans out there as they would see the Munna Bhai-Circuit Jodi together interacting on the same platform.

Makers were approached for the idea of getting Munna Bhai actors together for a special chat. When the actors heard of the idea, they were more than happy to come together and reminisce about the movie. They recently shot for the impromptu chat at a suburban studio in Mumbai.

During the chat, the actors discussed how the success of Lage Raho Munna Bhai went beyond their wildest imagination and how the film continues to be remembered for its central theme of Gandhigiri and non-violence. The video will be uploaded by the actors as well as the broadcasting company on their respective social media handles on October 2.

Here is the list https://www.theguardian.com/film https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/sep/13/100-best-films-movies-of-the-21st-century/2019/sep/13/100-best-films-movies-of-the-21st-century …. link also in bio.
