No man is spared from the waves of the #Metoo movement. The movement has now taken a giant form in calling out the names of the ‘famous personalities’ who have committed heinous crimes with the women around them. The #Metoo wave has already knocked the doors of the biggest industries in the country. Be it bollywood or be it sports, be it politics or be it comedy, shocking names are coming out every day.
Yet again, another big name has come to the light. Ashish Patil has been fired from the Yash Raj Films on Tuesday. He was the vice president, Brand Partnerships and Talent Management & Business and Creative Head at the YR Films.
An anonymous woman shared her story on Twitter on Tuesday saying that she was harassed by Ashish Patil of Yash Raj Films. She said that Ashish used to assure that she would get work under the Yash Raj Banner and also that she would have a secured future. Making such promises Ashish had made sexual advances with the woman and had assaulted her.
Yash Raj Films asked the anonymous woman to share her story with the Presiding Officer of their Internal Complaints Committee. They also said that YRF has zero tolerance towards any form of harassment.
After the allegations were proved to be right, the alleged man has been put down from the post of the Vice President of the YRF.
