Famed director Rajkumar Hirani, who delivered a blockbuster with Sanju last year, was recently accused of sexual assault by a female crew member while working on the Ranbir Kapoor starrer. Rajkumar maintained that the allegations were false, but due to the accusations, his name was dropped from Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga ahead of its release. Many came to Rajkumar’s support, while others called for a fair trial on the same. Amid all of this, Hirani continued to remain mum and avoided any sort of media interaction. However, the film-maker has slowly been making a comeback in the public eye.

A few weeks ago, he was in Switzerland to attend the pre-wedding celebrations of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta. Last Saturday and Sunday, Hirani and his wife, Manjeet attended the couple’s reception in Mumbai.

In the latest update, Rajkumar has been nominated in the Best Director category at the upcoming Filmfare Awards for Sanju. Not just that, his film has also been nominated in the Best Film category. The nominations for the Filmfare awards were announced last evening. However, Rajkumar’s nominations in two categories have not gone down well with citizens and Twitter exploded after the nomination list was released.
