Vikas Bahl is in the midst of a murky sexual harassment controversy. It all
began after a former Phantom Films' employee levelled allegations of sexual
harassment against him. Post that Kangana Ranaut and Nayani Dixit also spoke
about his misconduct. As a consequence, the Indian Film & Television
Director's Association (IFTDA) had asked Vikas on October 9 to show cause as to
why his membership shouldn't be terminated. Now, Vikas has reverted to IFTDA.
In the letter, Vikas called the allegations false, malicious and motivated. He wrote, "I deny all the alleged sexual harassment charges levelled against me and as stated in your said notice. These alleged charges are not only false, erroneous, malicious, motivated but have no factual basis. Further, you may also note that till date neither has any criminal complaint been filed against me in respect of the alleged sexual harassment charges nor have I been called upon by any investigation agency for investigation with respect to the same. The allegations levelled against me merely anonymous and hearsay. Thus, I am presumed to be innocent till proven guilty."
