Actor Sushant Singh Rajput was named and shamed in the MeToo movement around alleged harassment to his co-star Sanjana Sanghi on while working for Kizie And Manny. However, the actor denied the allegations and shared screenshots on Twitter of his chats with Sanjana as proof that no such harassment happened. The actress also backed Sushant which helped clear him out to an extent.

In a conversation with Mid-Day, Sushant told that they will start shooting for the last schedule of Kizie And Manny in Paris tomorrow. Taking about the Me Too episode, he said, “It was paradoxical because it [the #MeToo movement] was something that I stand for.”

He added, “I happened to be one of the intentional and strategic casualties. Many paid campaigners were used to give it a burst. I felt bad and misunderstood. The more it gets written about, the more it damages my reputation, which I have worked hard to build. The movement is a good thing. It is all about changing mindsets.”
