Along with Tanushree accusing and suing Nana patekar for misbehaving with her, she also accused filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri for sexual misconduct on the sets of film Chocolate. Tanushree Dutta, the torch bearer of the #MeToo movement in Bollywood will now be filing a FIR against Agnihotri.
Reportedly, the director of the film Chocolate had asked her to strip off her clothes and give cues to an actor. Agnihotri has however denied the allegations saying, “They are false, frivolous and vexatious” He also sent a legal notice to Dutta in response.
The lawyer further added that Agnihotri himself has confessed the crimes in a 10-page notice he sent to the actress. In the notice, that ‘the director was none other than me.’ As the filmmaker accepted himself that he has done it, they will be submitting an official complaint against him at the Oshiwara police station.
Netflix on 23 October confirmed they will continue its association with Vikramaditya Motwane, Anurag Kashyap and writer Varun Grover for the second season of Sacred Games.The streaming giant in a statement, said they carried out an independent investigation and are satisfied with the results.
Kashyap and Motwane, who co-directed the hit series, have been under fire for their alleged inaction in the sexual harassment allegations against former Phantom Films partner Vikas Bahl by an employee, a charge they both have denied.
Whereas, Grover was anonymously accused of sexual harassment, a claim he has categorically denied. In multiple statements, he has said that while he supports the movement, he wants to clear his name for his mental health. There has been no response from the anonymous account after he asked for closure.
“After an independent investigation, the results helped inform Netflix’s decision to continue with Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap on season 2 of Sacred Games,” Netflix said.
“Netflix will continue to work with Varun Grover on season 2 of Sacred Games,” it further said.
The company said it will collaborate with its production partners “to ensure and maintain a safe and respectful working environment”.
Meanwhile, As reported by India Today, advocate Venkatesh Dhond, who is representing Anurag and Vikram, argued that when the employee had complained the two had confronted Vikas, who had then broken down and confessed the truth. Apparently, he also promised to undergo rehabilitation as he has no control over his behavior when intoxicated. Mr Dhond also observed that another reason the victim does not pursue this legally is because of lack of sensitivity from the police or the justice system towards such matters.
