The 30-year-old woman has accused Kumar of allegedly committed rape with her on the pretext of a job in his upcoming film project. According to the media sources, the woman was in touch with Kumar for the past few years and it is alleged that Kumar sexually exploited the woman at different places for three years between 2017 and 2020.

TOI published the Kumar’s team statement in the matter, “The complaint filed against Mr. Bhushan Kumar is completely false and malicious and the contents of the same are denied. It has been falsely alleged that the lady in question was sexually exploited between 2017 to 2020 on the pretext of giving her work.
