The reports of sexual harassment against filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, rumours have it that Munna Bhai 3 goes on hold until Hirani gets a clean chit.
After the allegations against Hirani surfaced, Fox Star India conveyed Vinod Chopra Films that it will renounce the partnership if the studio continues to work with Rajkumar Hirani Films, reports Mid Day. Meaning by that Munna Bhai 3, which at present in under pre-production stage will be put on hold.
“In a meeting in late December, it was decided that Fox would pull the plug on Munnabhai 3 if Hirani was found guilty. The studio stands in solidarity with the survivor. VVC Films too has taken the matter seriously, and dropped Hirani’s name from the promotional material of ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’,” the publication quoted a source as saying.
Taking the matter seriously both VVC Films and Fox Star India have decided to investigate the matter. “An ICC set up by VVC Films will investigate the matter. Munna Bhai 3, however, by default, is on hold till Hirani gets a clean chit,” the source added
