Nana Patekar, Vikas Bahl and Alok Nath, to name a few, have been accused of sexual harassment. While many have lent their support to the victims, some celebrities are also shying away from expressing their point of view. Actor Rajkummar Rao, who worked with Bollywood director Vikas Bahl on the movie Queen, has spoken out against the director.

Expressing his views as #MeToo campaign knocked the Bollywood’s door, Rao said  "It's very shocking and sad. What happened was very unfortunate. I strongly condemn whatever is going on. What is wrong is wrong," Rao told HuffPost India. 

"We as an industry should come together to protect everyone be it men or women against any kind of harassment, and I hope and pray that God will give strength to that girl to come out of it even stronger." Said the Stree actor.

"We have to address the safety of women and that is of utmost importance right now, I would love to work only with people with ethics and the right moral conducts," Rao said, clearing his stand on working with the accused director in the future.

Referring to allegations against Vikas Bahl, the actor seemed losing his trust in the director as Vikas Bahl loses many Bollywood projects due to his misconduct.

Allegations against Vikas Bahl has come to light days after actress Tanushree Dutta revived a decade-old case of harassment against Nana Patekar. With the global #MeToo movement finally taking off in India, several actors and directors across industries are being demolished.
