Earlier, in a statement, Fox Star Studios India suspended Mukesh Chhabra from directing his first film in the light of sexual harassment allegations against him.
The official Twitter handle of the production house made the announcement, writing, “As a responsible organisation, Star India takes any allegation of sexual harassment of women at workplace very seriously. Hence, Fox Star Studios has suspended the services of ‘Mukesh Chhabra’, director of our film Kizie Aur Manny, which is under production, till the Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) of Mukesh Chhabra Casting Company concludes its inquiry into the allegations against him.”
Sushant will essay the main lead, which was originally essayed by Ansel Elgort in 2014. The film would also see Saif Ali Khan in a cameo appearance. The film may face tough competition with Ajay Devgn’s ‘Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior’ at the box office, which is scheduled to release on November 22, 2019.
