He won the National Award for his film Jolly LLB, but then has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Well, we are talking about the director Subhash Kapoor who was arrested on Monday (June 23, 2014) on charges of molestation by actor Geetika Tyagi.
Geetika Tyagi says that she feels empowered and now would go all the way to fight her way to get justice.
“I had approached the cops way back in February 2014, then filed the complaint in April and finally Subhash Kapoor gets arrested in June 2014. This clearly shows that a lot of powerful forces have been protecting him but no one gets arrested without reason. It’s the first step to my win and I am looking ahead now,” says Geetika Tyagi, who was seen in films such as Aatma, What The Fish and One by Two.
Geetika Tyagi had filed a complaint against Subhash Kapoor at Mumbai’s Versova Police Station in April, alleging that he came to her house in May 2012 and touched her inappropriately under the influence of alcohol.
Earlier in February this year, Geetika Tyagi tweeted a link to a video, in which she was seen accusing Subhash Kapoor of forcing himself on her, while Subhash Kapoor’s wife, Dimple Kharbanda, was seen pleading with Geetika Tyagi and her boyfriend, director Atul Sabharwal, to keep the matter private. Atul Sabarwal, Geetika Tyagi‘s boyfriend has directed the film Aurangzeb.
“Subhash was like an elder brother. I knew him and his family for nine years. I’ve seen his son grow up, and we’ve organised his birthday parties together. I was so shocked after that night that I didn’t know what to do. His wife would request me to keep the matter a secret for the future of their son, saying how he ill-treats her, too, but she has to put up with him because of her ailing mother. I am not one to put up with such abuse,”clarified Geetika.
Well, if all this was not enough drama director Tigmanshu Dhulia has tweeted in support of Subhash Kapoor and wrote, “If the film industry has any heart, they should boycott Atul Sabarwal as he was part of this vicious scheme to demean Subhash Kapoor.”
Now, who is right and who is wrong we shall get to know as the case unfolds.
