In a shocking turn of events, actor Jeetendra’s cousin has filed a sexual harassment complaint against him, as reported by India Today. According to the publication, the victim suffered for years after the veteran star allegedly assaulted her when she was in her late teens. After getting inspired with awareness generated with #MeToo campaign, she realised that she too needs to speak about this traumatic incident and therefore now wants closure.
The victim said that Jeetendra allegedly asked for permission from her parents to let her accompany him to his film sets. It is there, according to what victim told India Today, did the actor make a move on her without her consent. She even said that she has taken this step of informing the police because her parents are no longer alive and it would have caused them a great amount of pain had they known that Jeetendra did something as despicable as this to their daughter. The victim has requested that her identity be kept hidden for she fears the veteran star’s connections.
As of now, we are awaiting more details on the case. Jeetendra stays in Mumbai with his wife Shobha, daughter Ekta (who is a head honcho of Balaji Telefilms), son Tusshar and grandson Laksshya.
