As reported by Mumbai Mirror, Vikas Bahl sent legal notices to both Anurag kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, via e-mail. The victim had alleged that she had reached out to Kashyap and detailed her experience, but no action was taken while Bahl continued to harass her until she finally quit the company.

The notice, issued by Advocate Shamsher Garud of Jayakar and Partners, also stated that Anurag bribed another employee to go out against Vikas and falsely accuse him.

Kashyap and Motwane had directed the critically acclaimed first season of Sacred Games, which was Netflix's first Indian original series.

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 chose 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". "I have been silent for long enough and it makes me feel dirty". Can't explain further to people who don't understand due process, legalities.


Director Vikas Bahl, is in news amidst the raging #MeToo movement. However, the piece was also critical of Mr Kashyap's way of handling the matter, including the delay in calling Vikas Bahl out.

His notice includes statements and tweets by Mr. Kashyap and Mr. Motwane that he claims are being made to jeopardise the release of Mr. Bahl's film Super 30.

On being asked if she was talking about Hrithik, Kangana said, " I am referring to Hrithik Roshan people should not work with him as well". Everyone in the film industry knew.

Realising his earlier mistake of not having spoken up in support of those women, Imran says he will actively make it a point to stand up for them now. Bahl accused them of not only orchestrating the whole campaign against him, but also using the opportunity to disband Phantom Films, which was established in 2011 by Kashyap, Motwane, Bahl and producer Madhu Mantena and making him look like the person responsible for the production house's fall and termed them as opportunists for using the allegations to defame him. AIB co-founder Tanmay Bhat, who acknowledged that he knew of Utsav's alleged misconduct and did nothing, has "stepped away" from the collective.
