Ekta, who is one of the core members of sexual harassment committee set up by the Producers' Guild of India, along with Kiran Rao and Siddharth Roy Kapur, was made aware of an ongoing legal battle Subhash was embroiled in, where a female actor alleged that Kapoor tried to rape her in 2012. Ekta decided to remove Subhash from The Verdict as soon as the case was brought to her notice, reports Mid-Day.

Director Shashwat Shah will manage the production in view of the latest development, informed the daily.

Meanwhile, Bhushan Kumar also released a statement (via News18) stating that T-Series had also decided to not work with Subhash in light of the sexual misdemeanor case against him. "With the on-going proceedings against the director, everyone at T-Series has decided to not work with him," he said in a statement.

On Tuesday, the Producers Guild of India lent its support to the #MeToo movement to call out and report incidents of sexual harassment and abuse in showbiz.

Network 18, of which Firstpost is a part, has received complaints of sexual harassment as well. The complaints which are within the purview of the workplace have been forwarded to our PoSH committee for appropriate action.
