Kizie aur Manny which is the Hindi remake of Fault In Our Stars is one of the highly anticipated movies. The popular casting director Mukesh Chhabra is making his directorial debut with this project. However, the debutante filmmaker was suspended from the project after two women accused him of sexual harassment. Now, we have learned that he is back on the sets. Yes, he has been reinstated as the director of the movie as all allegations and complaints against him are officially cleared. "The ICC committee and the Federation of Western India Cine Employees didn't find him guilty and he was soon reinstated as the director of Kizie aur Manny. His arbitrary suspension has been revoked. In fact, the FWICE even sent a letter citing non-observance of the provisions of POSH Act in the enquiry procedure that was conducted post anonymous sexual harassment complaints that were falsely levied on Mukesh.  

The filmmaker has been shooting the film for the last 2 weeks and will next travel to Paris in the first week of January for the next schedule of the film. Mukesh is back on the film and hasn’t let the ordeal affect his passion and zeal for the film. Kizie aur Manny is turning out well and everyone is happy to put the episode behind them and continue making this passion project," the source closed to the project revealed.


For the unversed, the unnamed women had claimed that he harassed them during auditions. “He asked me to enact a scene which had the hero and the heroine hugging each other. Under the pretext of showing me how the scene should be performed, he grabbed me hard and felt me up. I could feel his hand on my butt. I was shell-shocked and immediately withdrew. He realised [my trepidation] and started vehemently apologising. At one point, he said, I thought you were fine with it because other girls are,” the Mid-day report had the quote of a budding actor. The report suggested that the actor left the film-dom after the incident.
