Yash raj films should realize that this is wrong step not to denay.. First Byomkesh Bakshi actor Sushant Singh Rajput and now director Dibakar Banerjee has been accused of sexual harassment. Why is Yash Raj Films accepting this behaviour? pic.twitter.com/8LZQuMz223

One time at the Delhi Airport, I met Dibakar Banerjee and congratulated him for his take on Byomkesh. Even then, I was aware of the Rohtagi Incident. What had been forgotten is being remembered for what? Footage? Disgusting behavior. #DibakarBanerjee
