The Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar controversy seems to have given rise to the #MeToo movement in Bollywood. After Nana Patekar, faces of many such celebs have come out that we couldn’t have thought of. Tanushree’s courage to speak up on the sexual harassment she faced has given courage to other victims who have also been through this. After the accusations on director Vikas Bahl and singer Kailash Kher, ace comedian Kanan Gill and renowned writer Chetan Bhagat too have been called out for sexual harassment.
A Twitter user accused Kanan Gill of inappropriately behaving with her while he was drunk. Here’s her tweet.
With all this outing happening right now, am actually really surprised nobody has mentioned Kanan Gill. He was drunk & behaved inappropriately with me & a couple of friends at a mixer few years ago.
We then kept distance, but his actions seemed to suggest a pattern of behaviour.

While replying to the user Kanan said that he couldn’t recollect the memory and he also asked an apology. The user accepted the apology and did not want to drag it further.
I’d like to address this: pic.twitter.com/wMZ5FRaoro

Chetan Bhagat too came out with a statement where he apologized to the lady who accused him of sexual harassment. It was after a woman shared screenshots of a conversation between her and Chetan Bhagat. Here are the screenshots.
