Mahima shared screenshots of the conversation she had with this woman who claims to be the ace director’s former employee on Twitter.

It all started by staying back in the recording studio late in the nights, dropping her home in his car, hugging her tightly and putting his hand on her thighs.

The anonymous woman recalled how the director had called her to his ‘thinking pad’ for a script session. The ‘thinking pad’ turned out to be a two-bedroom apartment in Lokhandwala, Mumbai. Instead of doing script session, Subhash started weeping about how no one in the industry understands him and that she is only one who loves him. In midst of weeping the director laid his head on this woman’s lap and while getting up he kissed her forcibly. Taken aback, the woman left the apartment.

Next the woman began narrating her rape, she started by stating that one night after a late music session the director fancied a drink in his car and gave her a spiked dink of whiskey.

She remembers drifting in and out of consciousness as the driver drove the two towards Lonavala’s Fariyas Hotel. All this while the lucid woman was pleading that she wanted to go home. Upon reaching the suite, Subhash unbuttoned her jeans and mounted her whilst covering her mouth with his hand so she could not scream.

After coming back to Mumbai, the woman took a few days off but was informed that she would not get paid if she took any more leaves. The woman returned to work soon after and resigned a week later.

After an anonymous woman who came forward accusing Subhash Ghai for rape happened several years ago, actor-model Kate Sharma is the recent one to accuse Subhash Ghai against molestation. she have filed a molestation case against Subhash Ghai claiming that the director tried to “forcibly hug and kiss her”.

Kate is quoted as saying by ANI, “He called me to his house on August 6. There were about five to six people at his house and in front of everybody, he asked me to give him a massage. It was shocking for me but I respected his seniority and agreed. I massaged him for two to three minutes and then went to the washroom to wash my hand. He followed me to there. He then took me to his room saying that he wanted to talk to me about something. However, he grabbed me and tried to kiss and hug me.”

“I told him that I wanted to leave. He then threatened me and said that he will not launch me if I do not stay with him for the night,” Sharma said.

Reacting to the complaint, Subhash Ghai touted himself a great supporter of #MeToo movement but is grieved that people are trying to harm his reputation. “I am surely a grt supporter of d metoo movement n women empowerment bt hope that those taking undue advantage of the movement do not end up diluting it 4their own short time fame. I feel grief if some one trying 2harm my reputation.Any way my lawyers will take care of matter,” 

The director has denied these allegations. In a statement, Subhash Ghai stated that he strictly and firmly denies these ‘allegations made in the air’ against him. 

“As I hear some allegation made against me in the air from section of media, I state hereby to the best of my truth. It’s very sad that it’s becoming a fashion to malign anyone known, bringing some stories from past without any truth or half-truth.I deny strictly and firmly all false allegation like these.”

He further said, “I have always respected every woman in my life and at work place whatsoever. We live with dignity and respect other’s dignity always.If she claims this way, she should go to court of law and prove it. Justice will be done. Or I will go for defamation certainly.God bless them who are trying to harm our long-standing establishment.”
