Back in 2018 during the #MeToo movement, many Bollywood celebs were accused of sexual harassment. Bhushan Kumar was also accused of sexual harassment by an anonymous Twitter user during that time.
“I am appalled and anguished to know that my name has been dragged in this #MeToo by some anonymous person(s). The allegations against me are bad on the face of it. I have enjoyed an impeccable reputation and have always maintained professionalism. The tweet has been used as a tool to defame me and malign my reputation,” in the earlier case Bhushan Kumar said in a statement to PTI.
