Kashyap on Wednesday said he has chose to step down as the board member of Mumbai Academy of the Moving Image (MAMI) of which he has been a member ever since its inception.

The notice, issued through Advocate Shamsher Garud of Jayakar and Partners, alleges that Kashyap bribed another employee of the production house to make similar allegations against Bahl.

The Shaandaar director also accused his former partners of not only orchestrating the whole campaign against him, but also using the opportunity to disband Phantom Films.

Producer-director Vikas Bahl, accused of sexual assault and harassment, has sent legal notices to filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane for making "defamatory allegations" against him.

Nurmagomedov was not given the belt in the ring after the fight and was escorted from the octagon by police and security staff. After several minutes, UFC president Dana White approached Nurmagomedov and told him why he would not be getting his belt.

Over a series of tweets, Anurag Kashyap made the announcement.

On the other hand I vehemently deny to have stayed silent on the issue & not doing anything about it for years. Have been resilient through all accusations, keep flinging them my way.

Vikas Bahl, on his part, has accused Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane of maligning his image by giving statements against him on social media. Can't explain further to people who don't understand due process, legalities.

Vikas also labeled Anurag and Vikramaditya as opportunist.

Kashyap, who has been accused of shielding Bahl, said he will come back only after clearing his name.

One of the primary reasons that came to the fore were the charges of sexual harassment levelled against Vikas Bahl.

Notice also points out at contradictions in Anurag's stated position as the victim herself termed his statements on social media as sudden moral enlightenment and further with the reference to the alleged victim's statements in the media, the notice reads that when she approached him in October 2015, he did not show any inclination to act on her allegations. Recently, actor Imran Khan also told Indian Express that "everybody in the industry knew about Vikas Bahl's behaviour".

Rao's comments added to a chorus of voices including his Queen co-star Kangana Ranaut, Hrithik Roshan-who is working on Bahl's next movie Super 30-and other members of the Bollywood fraternity such as Sonam Kapoor, Hansal Mehta and Nandita Das. The other film is Chintu Ka Birthday, produced by AIB, which has been deeply implicated in #MeToo allegations. AIB co-founder Tanmay Bhat, who acknowledged that he knew of Utsav's alleged misconduct and did nothing, has "stepped away" from the collective.
