Last week, actress Sanjana Sanghi opened up about the #MeToo allegations levelled against her Dil Bechara co-star Sushant Singh Rajput in October 2018. Soon, Kangana Ranaut's team on Twitter page, blasted Sanjana for taking her 'own sweet time' to clarify the fake #MeToo allegations placed on the late actor. The Queen actress even tagged the Mumbai Police to investigate from this angle as well.
Now, Sushant's co-star Sanjana Sanghi has reacted to Kangana Ranaut's team's allegations against her.
Sanjana Sanghi Hits Back At Kangana Ranaut
The Dil Bechara actress told Zoom TV that 'nobody has the authority' to judge if her response was fast enough or not. She was quoted as saying, "I have said more than enough about what happened. Also, I've given a clarification which should have been enough. At that time, it wasn't late, nobody is in authority to decide what's late and what's not. You don't fuel rumours. It is not the responsibility or job to clarify rumours."
Sanjana Says It Was Incorrect To Call The Episode A #MeToo Case
Explaining that since both, she and Sushant had quashed all rumours of any harassment, it was incorrect to call the episode a #MeToo case. She said, "We shouldn't disregard the #MeToo movement by calling it "Me Too" because Me Too is when there's an actual issue. But when two people are trying to say there's no issue, that's not called the Me Too movement that's rumour mockery and that shows the power of unethical reporting."

Sanjana was quoted as saying, "I am a student of journalism, I've studied at Delhi University and that's not the journalism I was taught. So, I don't see it as the Me Too movement. For me, apparently getting late in giving clarification for rumours, but I did it still because it was important for us, Sushant and me."
