Vikas Bahl’s Notice To Anurag Kashyap & Vikramaditya Motwane; States Them As Opportunists

Over the weekend, Kashyap had put out a statement in which he had said that that he had "named and shamed" Bahl in the film circles for behaving inappropriately with a Phantom Films employee during a trip to Goa in 2015. "I can not name people I am talking about, but I will tell you stories as I know it", the Luck star said as he began narrating an incident that happened right in front of him. "They assault them, they harass them, they should also be punished".

She then made this revealing statement, "People who keep their wives as trophies and keep young girls as their mistresses should also be punished".

With Hrithik Roshan and the Super 30 team planning to drop Vikas Bahl's name from the promotions and perhaps from the credits too, Kangana has now targetted the lead actor himself in his new statement. The two have been at loggerheads for nearly two years with their separate versions of the story and have even taken each other to court over it.

Actress Kangana Ranaut also backed the woman's claims and gave her own account of how Bahl had misbehaved with her on the film sets of "Queen". She had said, "Whatever is happening with Vikas Bahl is absolutely correct. He'd say "I love how you smell K". There have been times when I wanted to speak out.

On the other hand I vehemently deny to have stayed silent on the issue & not doing anything about it for years.

Nadal also announced on social media that his tennis academy on the island would offer shelter to people affected by the floods. The floodwaters tore down trees, swept numerous cars and trucks into piles of twisted metal and buried streets under mud.

Kashyap, who has been accused of shielding Bahl, said he will come back only after clearing his name.

Khan is expecting a backlash for this interview considering Bahl has already planned a defamation case against Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane. The Indian Film And Television Directors' Association or IFTDA on Tuesday sent a show-cause notice to Vikas Bahl. However, she said nothing came out of it and the issue wasn't taken seriously till two years later.

The HuffPost article on Bahl appeared before a host of women journalists accused M. J Akbar, a well-known former editor and now a junior foreign minister in Narendra Modi's government of sexual harassment.

After the accusations came to fore, Hrithik, who has worked with Vikas in his next film, Super 30, said it is impossible for him to work with any person "guilty of such grave misconduct". I am away and have access to only sporadic information. This is not to be hushed or brushed under the carpet.
