Bollywood actress Geetika Tyagi is the latest to join in the ever growing trend of those seeking social media justice, with her video post accusing director Subhash Kapoor of sexual assault.
The video shows a tussle not just between the two, but also Kapoor's wife Dimple Kharbanda.
Kapoor, however, does not deny the accusation and is heard saying he is ashamed and will face the consequences. At this point, Tyagi steps in to slap Kapoor.
Kapoor is seen acknowledging the sexual abuse which allegedly happened a year ago, in the video, his wife pleading with Tyagi to consider the impact making this public would have on their son Tyagi tweeted the video on February 19 with a cryptic post 'confession of the sexual abuser'.
The video footage shows Subhash saying, "After talking to you (Sabharwal) and Geetika yesterday, she (his wife) felt that probably if you'll come, it will help. Though I don't know how it will help. But I'm here because I have no excuse, no answer to anything to her. In this entire scheme of things there is somebody who has taken the bulk... in my scenario, it is my wife who isn't connected with it, who had to accept certain things..."
In an attempt to avert the negative impact of the incident on their son, Subhash's wife Dimple begs Atul to keep the issue private.
"When I came to your house I started off by saying that I'm offering unconditional, without any reason my apologies for my conduct," Subhash recalls. While Subhash tells Geetika, "I didn't drag you inside," she retorts, "You pulled me, Subhash. You were holding my hand..." As Geetika recalls the incident, she tells Subhash, "I can't trust any man."
The video ends with Tyagi slapping Kapoor, for his misbehavior.
Tyagi followed this video with a series of tweeted statements on the incident:
