Bollywood actress Geetika Tyagi, seen in movies such as One By Two and What the Fish, has accused Jolly LLB director Subhash Kapoor molesting her one-and-a-half years ago.
The actor shared a video on February 17 on Twitter, titled Subhash Kapoor’s True Face, where she is having a discussion on the incident with Kapoor and his wife Dimple Kharbanda. Geetika also cries and slaps Kapoor. Aurangzeb director Atul Sabharwal is the mediator, who has also supported Geetika by replying to her tweets on the sexual abuse case.
Geetika has also issued a statement with the video, which reads as:
“My intentions for uploading this video are:
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.”

However, common friend Danish Raza has denied the story, saying Geetika and Subhash were together. And now that Atul has entered her life, she has changed her story.
