Recently, ace choreographer Ganesh Acharya was accused by two women. One woman accused him of sexually abusing her in the 90s. Though Ganesh has denied both the claims, according to a report in Mid Day the complaint was registered saying, "It happened to me three decades ago. I have been married and have had kids, but he hasn’t changed one bit. When I read about the FIR, I knew I had to speak up too. In 1990, I used to go to Sahiba hall in Andheri West where several masters take dance classes. Acharya used to assist Kamal masterji. I was 18 then and working as a non-member dancer. A second complaint was filed by an assistant dancer against Ganesh for alleged sexual harassment.
