Amidst a huge furore over the misuse of the #MeToo campaign, another prominent accuser has backed down from pursuing a complaint legally, saying that her family member is going through health issues.
Kate Sharma had previously filed a police complaint of molestation against prominent producer-director Subhash Ghai. She had alleged that Ghai had called her to his house on the pretext of discussing a movie role. "He then tried to kiss me," she had alleged.
She later described the incidents to the media later after filing the formal complaint at DN Nagar Police station in Andheri East in Mumbai.

Subhash Ghai strongly denied the incident and said that no such incident took place.
Kate Sharma today took to her Instagram account and posted a letter addressed to the same police station. According to the contents of the letter, Kate is not willing to pursue the complaint against Ghai. She also says that her mother is unwell.

Don’t want anything from anyone , neither wanted to get into traumas and shocks, Entire #metoo campaign became fun and entertainment for India,I don’t want to be a part of fun. It was a courageous step, ending it into people started calling me by the name “me too” In all of this,Most important is my mother and her health , No damn justice I ll get ,if I ll lose her because of all this depressing things.. Focusing on career and family is only the healing. Live and let’s move on. Thankyou everyone.
In a conversation with Mid-Day, she further said, “Yes, I have informed the Mumbai police that I want to withdraw my complaint against Subhash Ghai. I want to take care of my family and my ailing mother instead of roaming here and there to get justice for whatever has happened to me.”
