According to reports film maker Vikas Bahl has been given the all clear by an internal complaints committee at Reliance Entertainment, from his charges of sexual misconduct. Furious at the way this decision has been made, Tanushree Dutta has come out and urged Hrithik Roshan who stars in Bahl’s directorial ‘Super 30’ to make a stand against him.
“Reinstating someone accused of such heinous acts is not acceptable. Come on, Hrithik. I thought you were different! Take a stand,” Deccan Chronicle reports Dutta expressed.
Confused with the turn of events, Dutta went on to state “What is this Reliance committee? Who are the members of this committee? Reliance committees are giving clean chits while law and order and police investigation is still pending? Of course all these committees will give clean chits. They are made up of such people. Clean chit is valid only when police or judiciary of India gives it. The rest is corruption.”
“So if the victim didn’t press charges, how is a clean chit possible? It’s an internal complaints committee. Such committees have been operating for ages clearing rapists, molesters and harassers. This is just a PR stunt to get image control, so these weirdos (#MeToo accused) can get back to business. And the victim not pressing charges is not surprising given the shame, stigma and hassle of a court case,” Dutta went on to add.
When the Bahl had first been reported there were some big names who came out and suggested that they would not work with the film maker until he was cleared and this sort of behaviour was unacceptable. Dutta has called out again to the industry and expressed, “India needs to buckle up, and our Bollywood stars need to be much more responsible as millions look up to them as their idols.”
