Last year, Subhash Kapoor was accused of alleged sexual misconduct in the #MeToo movement. Following the allegations on him, Aamir Khan walked out of his film Mogul last year. However, the actor collaborated with Kapoor for the same film this month. Actor Angad Bedi is a part of Subhash Kapoor’s web series titled The Verdict.
The Zoya Factor actor was asked about the #MeToo allegations on director Subhash Kapoor. Angad told Pinkvilla that he can’t comment on someone does in their personal lives. He added that he doesn’t even know the reality.
Angad Bedi said, “I don’t even know the reality, right? Like, I go and work as a professional and come back home and that is where my job ends. Firstly, what anyone does in their personal life, I am no one to comment on that. Secondly, allegations can be levelled at anyone. What if tomorrow someone makes an allegation against me? What do I do? How do I? Is there a probe? Does it get proved? Is it true… there are many questions I have regarding #MeToo in my head.”
Bedi also mentioned that #MeToo is a great movement and a great voice to be heard but it should have an end result. He said that what happened with Subhash Kapoor was unfortunate.
Angad stated, “My point is tomorrow you can malign anyone’s image, what will that man do? Whether he is right or wrong, the damage is already done. For a guy like Subhash Kapoor, I think Aamir Sir is working with him in Mogul. I think for me, he is my filmmaker. I was cast in the film because he thinks I am good, and I have done my work. It is unfortunate what he went through. I sympathise with him, really. I know him on a level where I worked with him and it was all fine. Agreed, a man to man relationship is different but there were women on sets as well and it seemed all well. I think the wave needs to have more gravity. You prove it, and then the person is guilty otherwise it can happen to any celebrated person.”
