After being shown the door from Aamir Khan's Mogul, director Subhash Kapoor has been reportedly sacked of by Ekta Kapoor from her upcoming web series- The Verdict. In the times when the country is going through a good change, we are glad to know that the TV czarina has lent her support to the #MeToo movement. A source close to mid-day has revealed that after Ekta came on-board as one of the core members of Producer's Guild, which aims to address the issue of sexual harassment at workplace, she immediately to remove Subhash from the show.
As per the latest development, a new director will come onboard soon. The source also revealed that Ekta has decided to support the victim. "Subhash(Kapoor) was integral to the system, but she has decided to support the survivor. Till the criminal proceedings on Subhash continue, Balaji won't work with him." If you have not been following the charges filed against Subhash, let us tell that Geetika Tyagi had accused him of molestation in 2014. She had filed an FIR against him alleging that he attempted to rape her.
Instead of denying the allegations levelled against him, Subhash Kapoor, who was earlier part of Aamir Khan's Mogul, respected the actor's decision of walking out of the film. Talking to Indian Express, he had said, " "I understand and respect Aamir Khan's and Kiran Rao's decision. Since matter is sub judice, I intend to prove my innocence in the court of law. But I do want to raise a question - is secretly filming a crying woman without her consent and knowledge and uploading it on social media, not harassment or abuse? Or is it fine if she is related to someone who is "allegedly accused" of a misconduct? If your answer is latter then for me it's nothing less then a khaap panchayat mentality."
