Bollywood actor Arbaaz Khan, on Thursday, said that he supports the #Metoo movement as no one has the right to harass anyone. The actor, however, said innocent people should not be framed. "No one has the right to harass anyone. I fully support the #MeToo movement. Sexual harassment survivors should get justice but we also have to take care of the fact that no one misuses this movement.

"The kind of atmosphere right now is that people are taking decisions based on anyone's accusations. We need to be sensible in these cases," he said in a group interview in Mumbai. The actor said the movement is "like a tsunami" and since it's new, people are taking time to come to a conclusion regarding corrective measures.

"If the accused has admitted to wrongdoing, apologised for it and wants to redeem himself so, I don't know how do we solve these things. The current atmosphere is like a tsunami. No one knows how the decisions will be taken and what will eventually happen.

"We need to listen to sensible people... I hope the court brings new laws regarding these cases. I hope some positive changes will emerge from this movement," he added.

The actor was speaking on the sidelines of his next film, Jack and Dil scheduled to release on November 2.

From Bollywood, names like Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, Mukesh Chhabra, Nana Patekar, Sajid Khan, Kailash Kher, Anu Malik and Rajat Kapoor are being accused of sexual misconduct by several women.

Tamil superstar Vijay’s upcoming film Sarkar was cleared with a ‘U/A’ certificate by the censor board on Thursday, paving the way for its worldwide release. After getting the approval of censor officials, the producers confirmed the release date as November 6.

With just two weeks for its release, the big-budget movie has courted controversy. Director AR Murugadoss has been accused of stealing the story of Sarkar from another filmmaker.

Writer and assistant director Varun Rajendran has approached the South Indian Film Writers Association claiming that Sarkar’s story is a copy of his work titled Sengol which he registered in 2007 with the Writer’s Union. His complaint is currently under an investigation.

AR Murugadoss had been accused of plagiarism a few times in his illustrious career of 17 years. His blockbusters Ghajini and Kaththi were also in a similar situation in the past.

Even as an official comment on the controversy is awaited, the producers of Sarkar have reportedly moved the Madras High Court as a preventive measure to safeguard their interest.
