With marvels like Queen, Chillar Party and much more, Vikas Bahl had a clean-chit image. But recently, a female colleague came up and charged him against molestation during a trip to Goa. Due to this, he has been eliminated from Phantom Films.
An anonymous stakeholder of the production house commented,
We (Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Films) have taken a hard stand, based on what we have heard and investigated.
On taking down Vikas, the stakeholder said,
The decision needed to be taken because it was getting too much. There are not one, two or three but multiple victims. I was in the middle of a film shoot when I came to know about the first incident and I had to stop my shoot and come to Mumbai…there is (after all) a young girl on whom an intoxicated Vikas forced himself while they were in Goa. He has behaved badly in the past as well but when this specific complaint came, we needed to act on it.
