Mumbai: Taapsee Pannu has joined the list of bandwagon of Bollywood celebrities to react to the very viral Arunabh Kumar fiasco.
The actress, who's become a deserving flag-bearer of feminism post her acclaimed role in 'Pink,' chose to not jump the gun and accuse the disgraced CEO of The Viral Fever (TVF).
“When I heard about this, I picked up the phone to speak to some people at TVF. But I have been hearing completely opposite stories. It’s very confusing. But there are some women who have come out in the open with their names, alleging harassment. It is difficult to believe that someone would lie about being molested, especially when their identities and backgrounds are out in the open. I have told my friends who work there to keep me updated. There are too many stories doing the rounds and at this point, it’s very difficult for me to form an opinion,” she told Hindustan Times.
Earlier an unidentified woman, claiming to be a former employee of TVF, had accused Arunabh of molesting her several times during her two-year stint with it. Blogged under the pseudonym of ‘Indian Fowler’, the blog titled ‘The Indian Uber- That is TVF’ narrated seemingly horrific details of her encounters with Kumar. TVF, however, vehemently denied all allegations in an official statement.
Following these, scores of women came forward to reveal their own personal experiences with him, which aggravated the situation. Arunabh later urged for a police investigation to be initiated.
