Filmmaker Vikas Bahl will no longer be associated with Kabir Khan's "83", days after a woman employee at Phantom Films reiterated her allegations of molestation against the director. He was on board as one of the producers.
Last year, the woman employee at Phantom Films, which had Bahl as one of the partners along side Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena, had alleged that Bahl behaved inappropriately with her during a trip to Goa.
When asked, Khan confirmed the news to PTI, "Yes, Vikas Bahl will not have any credit on '83'."
Bahl has been accused of sexual harassment by a former employee of the company, which was dissolved ahead of a HuffPost article that detailed the victim's account and how the production house failed to take action.
Both Kashyap and Motwane have since distanced themselves from Bahl in separate statements.
On Monday, Hrithik Roshan, who stars in Bahl's next directorial "Super 30", broke his silence saying it is "impossible" for him to work with any person "guilty of such grave misconduct".
