Filmmaker Subhash Ghai, accused of raping a woman after spiking her drink several years ago, has now been accused of molestation by actor-model Kate Sharma. She has filed a complaint against Ghai in which she claimed the director tried to “forcibly hug and kiss her”.

The actress filed a complaint against the director. Post  lodging a complaint, the actress while speaking to ANI said:

“He called me to his house on August 6. There were about five to six people at his house and in front of everybody, he asked me to give him a massage. It was shocking for me but I respected his seniority and agreed. I massaged him for two to three minutes and then went to the washroom to wash my hand. He followed me there. He then took me to his room saying that he wanted to talk to me about something. However, he grabbed me and tried to kiss and hug me.”

When she requested to leave, she said Ghai threatened her. “I told him that I wanted to leave. He then threatened me and said that he will not launch me if I do not stay with him for the night,” Sharma said.
