The #MeToo movement in India is picking up its pace with women from all walks of life sharing their story of #MeToo. As Bollywood is facing the brunt of it mainly, many filmmakers and actors have been accused of sexual misconduct.

The list includes Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, Sajid Khan, Subhash Kapoor, Bhushan Kumar, Mukesh Chhabra among others. As per the latest reports, the new member to join the bandwagon is actor Vicky Kaushal's father Sham Kaushal, who is popularly known to be Bollywood's action director.

A woman named Nameeta Prakash has accused Sham over sexual harassment during the outdoor shoot of a film. The victim who has been an assistant director in films such as Manorama Six Feet Under, Ab Tak Chhappan and Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd., alleged that Sham called her into his room for a Vodka drink and despite her refusal; he became adamant and showed her a porn clip.

However, Sham Kaushal has been yet to react on the accusations spilled on him.

For the uninitiated, the #MeToo movement was initiated after Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar over sexual misconduct during the shoot of Horn Ok Pleasss in 2008. Her lawyer has demanded Narco-analysis, brain mapping and lies-detector test for Nana Patekar and others, whoever have been accused of harassing her. As of now, Nana Patekar is yet to respond to the allegations. He has stepped down from Housefull 4 after being accused. Ever since then, the #MeToo movement has grown stronger as each day passes.
