Bill Murray was set to star in the Aziz Ansari movie, “Being Mortal” before the production was suddenly shut down. It was reported that Murray was involved in some type of inappropriate behavior on set. We now have an idea of what that behavior was.
Filming on the picture was suspended indefinitely on Thursday after the reports came out. The Post was told by a source that Murray had allegedly been “touchy” with the women on set. That led to the film being placed on pause.
The source noted that Murray was being very hands on. They did not indicate that it was overtly sexual. Bill was trying to be funny, but the women didn’t take it that way.
“He was very hands-on touchy, not in any personal areas, but put an arm around a woman, touched her hair, pulled her ponytail — but always in a comedic way.
It is a fine line and everybody loves Bill, but while his conduct is not illegal, some women felt uncomfortable and he crossed a line.”
The decision to shut down the production was made by Aziz Ansari himself. It does not sound like Murray will be welcomed back to the set. Time will tell how Ansari plans to address the remainder of the film.
