Nawazuddin Siddiqui would rather not talk about the important #MeToo movement that has taken place worldwide as it would divert the focus from his career..
He added, "For me my career is important. After so many years of struggle, I am getting work, so I want to focus on it. I want to try and stay away from all this. Now whether I get affected or not, it is a personal thing."
Talking about his memoir which he pulled back after hurting sentiments of the women he named detailing their relations, Siddiqui stressed, "I am just the same person. I am an actor and I just want to work. I just want to act. I don’t want to talk about anyone and what is happening in my personal life. I don’t want people to focus on that. I am known and have become popular due to my work and so I just want to concentrate on my work."
Hirani has been accused of sexual assault by his former assistant director. The woman said that the filmmaker of 3 Idiots and Munna Bhai assaulted her on multiple occasions over a six-month period between March and September 2018.
Hirani through his lawyer Anand Desai has categorically denied the allegations.
