Bollywood actress Geetika Tyagi, who was seen in ‘One By Two’ and ‘What the Fish,’ has accused ‘Jolly LLB’ director Subhash Kapoor of molestation.
The actress shared a video on the microblogging website Twitter, named ‘Subhash Kapoor’s true face’. The video taken by a hidden camera has director Kapoor, his wife Dimple Kharbanda and Geetika discussing about the sexual interaction that happened between the two.
‘Aurangzeb’ director Atul Sabharwal, who was supporting and encouraging Geetika on Twitter to put out this video, is also seen in the video mediating between the two parties.
@sabharwalatul it took a lot of courage but finally I did it. Thank you Atul

@TyagiGeetika more power to you. May this end the mental suffering that you’ve been going through ever since.

For over 31 minutes, Subhash’s wife, Dimple is seen pleading to keep the matter private because she doesn’t want their son to get affected by his dad’s alleged misbehavior.
Subhash Kapoor seems to admit that he had some sort of sexual encounter with the actress, but doesn’t accept the blame for forcing himself upon her.
All this while, Geetika is heard crying hysterically and then she comes into the frame to slap the director.
Geetika also posted a note clarifying her intentions for uploading this video.
Here it is:
a) to caution those girls who will come in contact with this man, Subhash Kapoor, socially or professionally and will make the mistake of looking up to him as father-figure or as an elder brother and trust him and
b) for all girls who, if god forbid become victims of sexual assault, not to give in to pleading of their attacker’s wife, sister, mother, daughter or any woman who claims to be suffering and asks for your forgiveness for attacker. Dimple Kharbanda shamelessly attended film award functions within a week of this meeting that she did not know I was recording.
It is not easy to upload this. Like that sexual assault this too is invasion of my privacy that I am compelled to compromise by my own conscious to expose what Subash Kapoor did to me. A woman suffers in both the scenarios, when she stays quiet and when she speaks up.
I hope this fate does not befall on any woman anywhere.”
