Don’t want to blame Nawazuddin Siddiqui entirely, he must have had his reasons: Chitrangada Singh

Don’t want to blame Nawazuddin Siddiqui entirely, he must have had his reasons: Chitrangada Singh – Chitrangada Singh, who earlier claimed that Nawazuddin Siddiqui did not take a stand against her alleged harassment, has now said that she is not pointing a finger at the actor.

While recalling her harassment story, Chitrangada had reportedly said that Nawazuddin did not come out in support when she was allegedly harassed on the sets of Babumoshai Bandookbaaz.

She was cast alongside the Gangs of Wasseypur star in the Kushan Nandy-directorial, but was later replaced.

However, while talking to the media at an event on Wednesday, the 42-year-old said, “I don’t want to blame Nawaz entirely because I think he didn’t know how I was feeling. I am sure he must have had his reasons. So I am not pointing a finger at him.”

When asked if she is planning to file a complaint with regards to the matter, the Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi actress said, “I don’t intend to take a legal action. The producers had told an altogether different story, that’s why I had to come forward and share all that.”

Chitrangada Singh further explained how she felt the need to talk about the alleged incident in the wake of the ongoing #MeToo movement.

“Since the #MeToo movement has started, the issue came up again and that’s the reason I explained it again but there are cases which are worse than this,” she stated.

She further stated that there are cases even bad than hers and they need to be dealt with responsibly while adding that people cannot be forced to share their #MeToo stories.

The actress also said that it is important for big names of the industry to support the movement.

On the work front, Chitrangada Singh will next be seen in Baazaar alongside Saif Ali Khan, Rohan Mehra and Radhika Apte. The film will hit the big screens on October 26.
