After Tanushree Dutta shared the that Nana Patekar and sexually harassed her on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2008, it led to the beginning of Me Too movement in India. Many women came forward and named the men who were sexual offenders. Director Vikas Bahl was also accused of sexual harassment by one of the ex employees of Phantom Films.  This news had come out even earlier but wasn't taken given much attention. However, in the wake of #MeToo movement, it has again started garnering headlines.
 
Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, who are also the co-owners of Phantom, apologised recently for not taking an action against Vikas Bahl despite knowing about the incident. In an exclusive interview with us, Imran Khan said that he knew about Vikas being a sexual predator. Now, Arjun Kapoor also said that there were speculations in the industry about Vikas Bahl's sexual misconduct. Arjun spoke about it to PTI in detail.
 
The Mubarakaan actor said, "There was speculation in the industry. There were certain people who knew the reality within the office (Phantom Films). The hearsay doesn't allow us the power to do something when people within the office are not doing something. It is like when there is a robbery happening in your house, the neighbour can't file the complaint. Not having an HR in office is bizarre, I am not able to wrap my head around this... It is basic for any company, you could have saved the girl from further damage if you had a safe environment in your office, it is sad and bizarre."
 
He added, "We had only heard, we had no understanding. It is unfortunate as they were intelligent, sorted and successful people who were going to be the torchbearers of change in our films."
 
Along with Vikas, other celebrity names that have come out for sexual misconduct are Alok Nath, Kailash Kher, Rajat Kapoor, Zulfi Syed, Chetan Bhagat.

Inspite of knowing about it these nepo kids still don’t mind working with such people.. outsiders don’t have any idea but surely nepo kids can boycott such people?? They get enough films on a platter..

What a joke .... why don’t the nepo kids pick on their own? If there was speculation, you should have spoken up instead on riding on the coat-tails of others. By deriding on a smaller fry, it shifts the attention from them and their own kind.

Where is SRK...everybody has spoken a lot of times.

There were speculations and still hrithik signed his movie. Such a predator .
