After sending them a legal notice earlier in the month, Vikas Bahl has now filed a defamation suit against the ex-partners of Phantom Films – Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane.
Bahl, who has been accused by an employee of Phantom of sexual harassment, told Bombay High Court that Kashyap and Motwane had taken advantage of the #MeToo movement against him.

He has asked for Rs 10 crores in compensation from the duo and that they remove their social media posts about him.
