Vijay Raaz, who was accused of molesting a woman on the sets of Vidya Balan starter Sherni has finally broken his silence on the charges. For the uninitiated, the actor was arrested on November 2, 2020 evening by Gondia police for allegedly molesting a female crew member during the shoot of one of his upcoming films. However, it was reported that the actor was granted bail. The woman crew member accused him of misbehaving and harassing her.
Now, during an interaction with The Times of India, Vijay shared his side of the story. He said, “Women’s safety is of prime concern. I have a 21-year-old daughter, so I understand the gravity of the situation. I am all for an investigation by the authorities. However, to ostracise me, suspend and terminate my services from my forthcoming films even before any sort of investigation, is shocking. I have no words to express. It’s a very dangerous place to be in. I have been working in the film industry for 23 years!”
Vijay further stated, “Anybody can sabotage anyone’s career? Kisine bol diya aur aapne maan liya that I am a harasser? People are bound to make judgements without hearing the other side of the story. No matter what the outcome of this case, aap pe ek thappa lag jaata hai. I have been pronounced guilty even before the investigation. My right to earn a livelihood is badly affected. Am I not the victim here? My old father who lives in Delhi also has to face society and so does my young daughter.”
Narrating the incident, the Gully Boy actor went on to tell the daily, “I have been working with the same crew for over a year. We play cricket on set. It’s how we are with each other. Yet, when I was told she felt uncomfortable, I apologised. This was in front of the entire crew. My apology meant I respect your feelings. But it didn’t mean that I acknowledged the claims made later at the police station. Saying sorry doesn’t always mean that you are wrong. It means you respect someone’s feelings more. I also have responsibilities and I need a job. Mere itney saalon ki mehnat can go down the drain if people jump to conclusions without verifying the claims. This should not be one-sided. Truth prevails but the damage is done.”
