Vikas Bahl Dropped From Amazon’s Upcoming Series After Multiple Sexual Harassment Allegations

Vikas Bahl is in the dock after several women have called him out for sexual harassment. Now, as a result, the director has been ousted from Amazon Prime’s upcoming series, a report in Mid-day states. The web series’ plot was about couple looking to spice up their sex lives.

A source close to the show makers told the leading tabloid, "The project is being produced by Monozygotic Solutions, which is owned by Raghu Ram and Rajiv Lakshman of Roadies fame. The show was a reboot of an Australian series that revolves around couples spicing up their sex lives. It was scheduled to roll by year-end. But with the latest controversy, Amazon wouldn't be comfortable backing it with Vikas on board. The production house has discussed the matter with Amazon, and will soon start scouting for another director."

To talk of the allegations against the Vikas Bahl, first a crew member spoke to HuffPost India about how he “insisted on dropping her to her hotel room on the early hours of May 5, 2015 and pretended to pass out drunk on her bed, only to awaken soon after and masturbate on her.

Then Kangana Ranaut accused him and told India Today, “He’d bury his face in my neck …. hold me really tight and breathe in the smell of my hair …. it took me great amount of strength and effort to pull myself out of his embrace, he’d say…. “I love how you smell K…” I could tell something is wrong with him.”

A while back, we told you about a noted actress, who also spoke to Miss Malini about how director forcibly tried to kiss her. She said, “He’s (Vikas Bahl) has always been dodgy, so I’ve never hung out with him alone for that reason. One day he was having a party where a lot of people I knew were going so I felt safe. But he got really drunk (or pretended to be) and he forcibly tried to kiss me on the lips, I pushed him and left immediately.”
