Mumbai: Rajkumar Hirani, who was accused of repeated sexual assault by a woman who worked on his film Sanju, has been nominated in the Best Director category at the upcoming Filmfare Awards for the same film. And it seems like this hasn't gone down well with the netizens, who are of the opinion that the director should not have been nominated in the first place owing to the sexual misconduct allegations.

While one Twitter user, Anshul Gupta has tweeted, “So, @filmfare has nominated @RajkumarHirani even when he has sexual harassment allegations against him and @MumbaiFilmFest dropped @anuragkashyap72 's Short film which had no connection with Phantom or Vikas Bahl. Such boot-lickers @jiteshpillaai @raghuvendras (sic),” another user, Sahir. @sahiravik, wrote, “If Bryan Singer had been nominated for an Oscar, or Harvey bloody Weinstein, @TheAcademy would've been lambasted into oblivion. But in India, we nominate Rajkumar Hirani for a @filmfare award barely two months after he was accused of sexual harrassment. Telling (sic).”
