In the most recent fallout of the #MeToo revelation in Bollywood Aamir Khan has decided to walk out of a film having a team-member who is under investigation for alleged sexual misconduct.
In a joint statement Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao said that Aamir Khan Productions follows a zero-tolerance policy towards sexual misconduct and predatory behaviour of any kind. Aamir Khan took to his Twitter handle to make the announcement.

They did not name the film or the person against who is under investigation, simple saying that “someone we are about to begin work with has been accused of sexual misconduct.” However, according to an announcement some time back, Aamir Khan Productions has an upcoming film Mogul directed by Subhash Kapoor, who has been accused of molesting a woman. The matter is now subjudice.
Subhash Kapoor has been accused by actor Geetika Tyagi for sexual harassment.
Although @MumbaiFilmFest hs disassociated itslf frm directors&producer whose names have come out in #Metoo movement but I hope its chairperson #KiranRao remembers tht @aamir_khan her husband hmslf is working wth #subhashkapoor who’s being prosecuted for sexual assault&molestation
