Women de­serve ben­e­fit of doubt: Fardeen Khan

MUM­BAI: Ac­tor

Fardeen Khan has come for­ward to sup­port the #MeToo cam­paign by say­ing that women who are ac­cus­ing men of sex­ual ha­rass­ment de­serve the ben­e­fit of doubt. How­ever, he also said that proper in­ves­ti­ga­tion needs to be done as it can de­stroy the ca­reer and life of an in­di­vid­ual.

Fardeen was in­ter­act­ing with the me­dia when he at­tended his cousin sis­ter, de­signer Farah Khan's new col­lec­tion launch at her de­signer store along with Bhagyashee Pat­ward­han-Dasani, Sus­sanne Khan, Zayed Khan and Kanika Kapoor on Fri­day in Mum­bai.

Re­act­ing to the #MeToo move­ment in In­dia, Fardeen said, "This is a world­wide phe­nom­e­non that has been go­ing on. Women in this sit­u­a­tion are ex­tremely vul­ner­a­ble. I do be­lieve that they de­serve the ben­e­fit of doubt, at the same time I don't be­lieve that mak­ing al­le­ga­tions against some­one au­to­mat­i­cally proves that he is guilty so there has to be process.
