Vikas Bahl Accuses Anurag Kashyap, Motwane of Defamation

Vikas Bahl ousted from Ranveer Singh starrer '83' amid sexual harassment allegations

Both Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane are yet to comment on the notice.

The notice alleges that Kashyap and Motwane acted on hearsay to paint Bahl as the villain of the piece. Mr Bahl has accused his former partners of professional jealousy.

Finally he revealed that he is stepping back as a board member of MAMI until his name is cleared for being complicit with Vikas' actions, "In the light of the current events, I have made a decision to step back from my duties as a board member from MAMI until the shadow of doubt of our alleged complicitness in silence and not doing anything about it, is cleared".

Bahl's lawyers have also accused Kashyap of bribing another employee at Phantom Films to come up with similar allegations against Bahl. Have been resilient through all accusations, keep flinging them my way.

Director Vikas Bahl, is in news amidst the raging #MeToo movement. "I have been silent for long enough and it makes me feel dirty". However, the piece was also critical of Mr Kashyap's way of handling the matter, including the delay in calling Vikas Bahl out.

He noted that Murkowski won election on write-in votes in 2010 and said, "She's about as strong as you can possibly be in Alaska". As he has been doing often recently on the campaign trail, Trump singled out specific Democrats for scorn - including Sens.

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

Indian Film and Television Directors Association (IFTDA) also sent a show cause notice to Vikas Bahl on Tuesday. Hrithik Roshan has asked the producers of Super 30 to take stock of this and make changes as they can.

Unfortunately, the film industry knew of their actions but chose to remain silent and with it every victim was silenced.

"We have to address the safety of women and that is of utmost importance right now, I would love to work only with people with ethics and the right moral conduct", Rao said, making it clear where he stands on working with Bahl in the future. After Phantom Films announced that they are shutting down the production house last week, a leading tabloid did an expose on Vikas Bahl and retold the story of the woman who was harassed by the filmmaker.

Meanwhile, the MAMI film body has dropped two films from its line-up - one is Kadakh, which stars actor Rajat Kapoor, who recently apologised after twosexual harassment allegations. AIB co-founder Tanmay Bhat, who acknowledged that he knew of Utsav's alleged misconduct and did nothing, has "stepped away" from the collective.
