Two days after HuffPost India published a detailed account of a survivor who was sexually assaulted by ‘Queen’ (2014) director Vikas Bahl in 2015, a Mid-day report says that Amazon Prime Video has dropped Bahl from a show he was to direct for the company.
The show in question was a reboot of an Australian series which involved couples spicing up their sex lives, reports the Huffington Post. The show was being produced by Monozygotic Solutions, a company run by Raghu Ram and Rajiv Lakshman, best-known for the show MTV Roadies.
The report said, quoting an anonymous source, that the show “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.”
