Here’s what we read as published in the daily, “HERE’S a #MeToo update. It seems one of our beloved filmmakers will be called out soon. The director, who had a major movie out last year, has been accused of sexual harassment by one of his juniors. The lady in question has sent emails to the film’s producer, who is yet to deal with the situation officially. Meanwhile, the producer has removed the accused director’s name from new posters of his next film (the director was credited as co-producer in the film’s original posters). Will the facts come to light and rock the industry, or will the heavyweights ensure they get buried? Let’s wait and watch.”

Brownie points if you can guess who this filmmaker is!
