Vijay Raza returns to Mumbai, charges against female crew members
Vijay Raj, who started his career with a very small but influential role in Ram Gopal Varma’s 2000 film ‘J’ungle ‘, has finally opened up on molestation charges against him. The ‘Made in Heaven’ actor said that he is all open for investigation but it is shocking to end him with his upcoming films even before any kind of investigation. Raz told the Bombay Times, “Women’s safety is a major concern. I have a 21-year-old daughter, so I understand the seriousness of the situation. I am all for investigation by the authorities. However, it is shocking for me to suspend and terminate my services from my upcoming films before any kind of investigation. I have no words to express. This is a very dangerous place where I have been working in the film industry for 23 years! “
The ‘Run’ actor continued, “I have made my own career with Bohat Mehtaan. Tinka Tinka Jodke I have made my home. Anyone can sabotage someone’s career? ? People are bound to make a decision without hearing the other side of the story. No matter the case, aap pe ek thappa lag jaata hai. I have already been convicted before the investigation. My earning a living Right is badly affected. Am I not suffering here? My old father who lives in Delhi also has to face the society and so is my younger daughter. “
A source informed the publication that the ‘Lutcase’ actor apologized to the woman in front of the entire crew after Raz found out that putting his arm around her shoulder made her uncomfortable.
Vijay Raj said, “I have been working with the same party for more than a year. We play cricket on the set. This is how we are with each other. Nevertheless, when I was told that she felt uncomfortable, I apologized. It was in front of the entire crew. My apology meant that I respect your feelings. But this did not mean that I later accepted the claims made at the police station. Saying sorry does not mean you are wrong. It means that you respect someone’s feelings more. I also have responsibilities and I need a job. If people jump to conclusions without verifying the claims, then it can go down the Meheta drain of Ittila Saulon. It should not be unilateral. Truth wins, but losses do.
On the professional front, Raz was last seen in ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ and ‘Lootcase’. He is next seen in Manoj Bajpayee and Diljit Dosanjh’s upcoming film Sooraj Pe Mangal Bhari and in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’.
