In a stunning surprise, the managing director of T-Series, Bhushan Kumar, has been called out for sexual harassment by an anonymous account.
The user posted the entire experience under a pseudonym 'for my own safety and anonymity'.
The post, written under the pseudonym 'YouTooBollywood', described the incident from three years ago when she was supposed to do a film produced by Bhushan Kumar.
The actress stated that once 'everything was finalized verbally and papers were to be signed the next day', she was called for a meeting with the boss.
While Bhushan Kumar reportedly offered her a three-film contract, he later called the actress 'looking for a relationship that involves work and pleasure'.
The actress also alleged that when she declined the options, Bhushan Kumar threatened her that "she won't survive in this city".
The allegations came a day after Bhushan Kumar dropped director Subhash Kapoor from his upcoming project, Mogul.
The director was accused of sexual harassment by actress Geetika Tyagi.
Speaking on the decision, Bhushan Kumar had said, "It is our foremost duty to make our industry safe for everyone, make an industry that creates an environment of equality and a better place to work. With the on-going proceedings against the director that have been brought to our notice, everyone at T-Series has decided to not work with the director."
The producer is also working with Emraan Hashmi to produce Cheat India, whose director, Soumik Sen, is also facing allegations of sexual harassment.
