Varun Grover, who is the writer of Masaan and Sacred Games has been accused of sexual harassment by a girl on Twitter anonymously. He has denied all the allegations but he has also said that he will fully co-operate for anyone who asks for cross checking the matter.
This man is setting up the right example of how #MeToo Movement cannot be misused. From the beginning of the movement and from much before that, he has always been vocal about anything which is wrong with the society. In such an important time of the #MeToo Movement, Varun shared a detailed statement and called the claims untrue:
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Here's my detailed statement about the completely fabricated, misleading, and defamatory allegations against me. Am absolutely willing to cooperate and clear my name. Let's not allow such agenda-driven tactics to derail this movement please. <a href="https://t.co/VTFeIjygcl">pic.twitter.com/VTFeIjygcl</a></p>— वरुण (@varungrover) <a href="https://twitter.com/varungrover/status/1049617540559855616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">October 9, 2018</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Anurag tweeted, “This man I have known so closely and so so long that I refuse to believe any allegations about him. #believethevictim and investigate the claims and also be careful to not let vested interests sabotage a long pending genuine movement.”
Neeraj Ghaywan also tweeted, “I know Varun for the large part of my life. I can never believe he would do such a thing. Never. Those allegations reek of vindictive behaviour and not a shred of truth in them. Absolutely, 100%, in solidarity with his statement below (denial statement on Twitter).” He added, “It’s appalling how such slanderous allegations are trying to sabotage the #MeToo movement in India. Varun is someone who is truly putting his weight and career behind for this movement. It is horribly irresponsible of whoever is behind this to malign him.”
Neeraj also said that his response is emotional and hence it would be fair to discount it. But also added, “Of course, my response is emotional and it is totally fair to discount it. This is my truth, what I believe in and I wanted to put it out there. You can wait for the truth to come in due course.”
