The four acclaimed filmmakers, Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena at Phantom films decided to part ways in 2017 after a fiery turn of events. The four of them decided to go separate ways as friends and colleagues. The so happened after Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual harassment by a female employee of their company, which he denied. Anurag Kashyap and Vikas Bahl have not been on talking terms since then and now after almost eighteen months, Anurag has opened about his equation with the latter.

Talking about his estranged friend Anurag said, “My stand on this is the same as it was back then. Vikas works in the company, he is a partner and nothing against him has been proven. But mutually, we’ve decided that we will work separately, in separate premises. Vikas and I are not on talking terms; everything else is a rumour. We will continue making films together but I see no point in making him uncomfortable. We can work in different set-ups. I don’t feel the need to sort anything out, because no one came forward to say or prove anything, at that time.”

The controversy was in news for days. The matter resurfaced as Madhu Mantena roped in Bahl to direct Phantom’s latest film titled ‘Super 30’ with Hrithik Roshan. Reportedly, the Bombay Velvet director has stopped visiting Phantom’s office. Talking about the production house, Phantom Films has successfully produced movies like Queen, Masaan, Udta Punjab, etc. Their next release will be Manmarziyaan which is directed by Anurag.
