Vikas Bahl Accuses Anurag Kashyap, Motwane of Defamation

The report came after they had announced they were dissolving the production company on Friday.

Separately, superstar Aamir Khan met with The Film and Television Producers Guild of India to discuss ways to ensure safe environment for women in the industry amid multiple allegations against Bollywood celebrities. There are men who make false promises of love and marriage to a girl to get them in to a relationship that is also a type of harassment. She then made a reference to Hrithik.

Do remember that Kangana Ranaut had earlier alleged that Hrithik Roshan used to date her and he tried to sabotage her career out of spite, allegations that Hrithik denied on a channel.

Director Vikas Bahl, is in news amidst the raging #MeToo movement. 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.

MUMBAI- Actor Rajkummar Rao, who worked with Bollywood director Vikas Bahl on the movie Queen, has spoken out after HuffPost India published a detailed account of a survivor who said Bahl assaulted her in 2015. It took me great amount of strength and effort to pull myself out of his embrace. I would not want to out the name of the survivors because it is their story to tell. "I have been silent for long enough and it makes me feel dirty".

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

Meanwhile, Roshan Jr, who was working with Bahl for Super 30, had tweeted saying that it was impossible for him to work with someone who was guilty of sexual misconduct. The woman came forward and narrated her experience with Bahl in a series of interviews with a publication.

Anurag and Vikramaditya spoke about the entire fiasco as well.

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. Nobody should work with such people. I am away and have access to only sporadic information. Super 30 lead actor Hrithik Roshan has also promised to take "stricter actions" against the filmmaker "if need be".

Speaking of Bahl's case, he said the matter was conveniently "brushed under the carpet" by his colleagues and he felt like he was the "odd one out" for bringing it up. "All proven offenders must be punished and all exploited people must be empowered and given strength to speak up".
