Subhash Ghai sexual harassment case Subhash Ghai was accused of sexual assault by a TV actor in the wake of ongoing #MeToo movement.

The TV actor, who had filed a complaint against filmmaker Subhash Ghai for sexual harassment, has withdrawn it, according to a report by Mid-day. The actor has said that she has to take care of her ill mother and her family, who have been quite worried ever since she opened up about the incident. The actor further added that the way her complaint has been addressed and dealt with has left her upset.

Talking to Mid-Day, the actor said, “Yes, I have informed the Mumbai police that I want to withdraw my complaint against Subhash Ghai. I want to take care of my family and my ailing mother instead of roaming here and there to get justice for whatever has happened to me.”

Disappointed with the handling of the #MeToo campaign, the actor added, “People are really making fun of the entire #MeToo campaign. Nothing has happened, nobody has been arrested. If cops are only busy registering FIRs, then what is the use of this entire campaign? Tell me, how many people have been arrested? Cops asked me if I wanted to register an FIR, but I dont see any reason for moving ahead to get justice as whatever I had to say is in the public domain. We (Ghai and her) were very good friends, but he destroyed everything; Ive said this publicly and Im saying it again. I am fed up of everything, hence I have withdrawn my case.”

Last month in October, the 26-year-old actor submitted a three-page long written complaint at Versova police station. “He asked me to massage his head and shoulders,” her statement in the complaint read. She also added that the Taal director pulled her into a dark room and tried to kiss her. Responding to the complaint, Ghai then tweeted, “I am surely a great supporter of the me too movement and women empowerment but hope that those taking undue advantage of the movement do not end up diluting it for their own short time fame. I feel grief if some one trying to harm my reputation. Any way my lawyers will take care of matter.”
