New Delhi: Ever since actress Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment on the sets of 'Horn Ok Please', several women have come forward and shared their ordeal publically. Recently, reports were that Sushant Singh Rajput has been accused of sexual misconduct by his 'Kizie Aur Manny' co-star Sanjana Sanghi. Following this, Sushant had shared screenshots of their SMS conversation and called it a "smear campaign".

The tweets containing the conversation were captioned as, “"I feel sad to reveal personal information but it seems that there is no other way to state what was, in the midst of this curated and well-timed smear campaign. From the first till the last day of the shoot, this is what happened on the set with Sanjana.”

Now, the debutant actress herself has issued a statement on Twitter saying that all those rumours were baseless and that no such incident has taken place with her.

Taking to Twitter, Sanjana shared a post that reads, “On returning from a long trip to the US yesterday, I read several baseless and unfounded stories with respect to misconduct and misbehaviour on the sets of our film Kizie Aur Manny. I'd like to clarify that no such incident took place with me. Let's put an end to these conjectures,”.

Meanwhile, popular casting director Mukesh Chhabra, who was supposed to direct the film has also be named in the MeToo wave. Mukesh was suspended by Fox Star Studios after the claims. The official handle of Fox Star Hindi issued a statement on Twitter which read “"As a responsible organisation, Star India takes any allegation of sexual harassment of women at workplace very seriously. Hence, Fox Star Studios has suspended the services of Mukesh Chhabra, director of our film `Kizie Aur Manny`, which is under production, till the Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) of M/s Mukesh Chhabra Casting Company concludes its inquiry into the allegations against him,"
