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.

Bahl's lawyers have also accused Kashyap of bribing another employee at Phantom Films to come up with similar allegations against Bahl.

Anurag and Vikramaditya spoke about the entire fiasco as well.

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". I can not be silent about it anymore. Can't explain further to people who don't understand due process, legalities.

After the aforementioned HuffPost expose, both Anurag Kashyap and Vikarmaditya Motwane shared their statements on social media, in which they explained that the partnership contract didn't allow them to fire Vikas Bahl.

Kashyap, who has been accused of shielding Bahl, said he will come back only after clearing his name. In their tweets, Kashyap and Motawane issued statements over sexual harassment allegations levelled against the "Queen" director and stated that they were deeply sorry for not handling the incident properly when required. Recently, actor Imran Khan also told Indian Express that "everybody in the industry knew about Vikas Bahl's behaviour".

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". "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. Top film bodies have promised to take proactive measures based on the #MeToo stories.

Bollywood celebrities Alok Nath, Nana Patekar and Vikas Bahl may face a boycott from the Federation of Western Cine India Employees (FWCIE) if they don't respond to the film body's show-cause notice within 10 days of their release, the organisation said, a media report said. Former AIB member Utsav Chakraborty has been accused by women of sending them perverse texts while Gursimran Khamba has been accused of harassment.
