Filmmaker Onir, 42, can heave a sigh of relief. He has apparently been vindicated of molestation charges by struggling actor Yuvraaj Parashar, who had last year accused Onir of molesting him.

However, Parashar, who appeared on reality show Sach Ka Saamna on Monday, said that he had lied. He was first asked, “Are the accusations you made against a famous director of physically molesting you, true?” Parashar couldn’t answer the question, as his father pressed the buzzer to stop him. He was then asked by host Rajeev Khandelwal, “Have you ever framed false charges against someone to gain publicity?” The actor said ‘Yes’. Onir, on his part, says he “doesn’t want to get into it”. “My life is not a part of a reality show. It’s all rubbish. I know the truth.”
