#Metoo: Vikramaditya Motwane Had No Clue About Vikas Bahl’s Actions

One of the biggest names to emerge from the #metoo movement has been that of Vikas Bahl, the former co-partner at Phantom Films. Following allegations of sexual harassment against Bahl by one of his former co-workers, a lot of fingers were raised at Anurag Kashyap and Madhu Mantena, the other partners at Phantom for their silence. Anurag then wrote a lengthy apology to the victim and explained his stance.

However, sources say, only  one of  the  partners at Phantom, Vikramaditya Motwane was unaware  of  the sordid goings-on. According to  sources, Lootera director Motwane  is “horrified beyond the imagination” to know all this was  going on right  under his nose. He cannot come  out in the open with his disgust and shock as  it would  show him  to be an opportunist.

But reliable sources  affirm that  Motwane was  never a  part of  the Kashyap-Bahl-Mantena  boys’ club at Phantom. “Motwane  focused  on doing his work, making his films and spending his free time with his wife. He hardly ever partied  with his partners. Motwane has confessed to friends that he feels betrayed by the  partnership,” says  the source.

While the  future of   the production company Phantom is sealed, Motwane may not get as seriously affected  by the Bahl factor as  the  other  business partners. “Motwane’s  innocence is not being  questioned by those who see Phantom as an organization created  to have  adult fun. In fact the second season of Netflix’s  highly successful series Sacred Games which was co-directed  by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramditya Motwane  may  be directed  Motwane alone,” says  the source.
