With the #MeToo movement prompting more women to come out and talk about their sexual harassment ordeals from industry names, director Mukesh Chhabra has gone extra lengths to get his name cleared.
As Pinkvilla reports, the ICC have found him innocent in all charges he was facing. “The ICC committee and the Federation of Western India Cine Employees didn’t find him guilty and he was soon reinstated as the director of Kizie aur Manny. His arbitrary suspension has been revoked. In fact, the FWICE even sent a letter citing non-observance of the provisions of POSH Act in the enquiry procedure that was conducted post anonymous sexual harassment complaints that were falsely levied on Mukesh'” a source was reported stating.
It went on to add, “The filmmaker has been shooting the film for the last 2 weeks and will next travel to Paris in the first week of January for the next schedule of the film. Mukesh is back on the film and hasn’t let the ordeal affect his passion and zeal for the film. ‘Kizie aur Manny’ is turning out well and everyone is happy to put the episode behind them and continue making this passion project.”
‘Kizie aur Manny’ has been reported to be the the remake of the Hollywood hit film ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ (2014).
