Anurag Kashyap can plead his helplessness and innocence as much as he likes in the social media. But the fact is, Vikas Bahl’s co-partners at Phantom , Madhu Mantena and Anurag Kashyap were fully aware of Bahl’s dirty doings .
Only one of the partners at Phantom, Vikramaditya Motwane was unaware of the sordid goings-on. According to sourcesMotwane is “horrified beyond the imagination” to know all this was going on right under his nose.He cannot come out in the open with his disgust and shock,as it would show him to be an opportunist.
But reliable sources affirm that Motwane was never a part of the Kashyap-Bahl-Mantena boys’ club at Phantom.
“Motwane focused on doing his work, making his films and spending his free time with his wife. He hardly ever partied with his partners. Motwane has confessed to friends that he feels betrayed by the partnership,” says the source.
While the future of the production company Phantom is sealed, Motwane may not get as seriously affected by the Bahlfactor as the other business partners .
“Motwane’s innocence is not being questioned by those who see Phantom as an organization created to have adult fun. In fact the second season of Netflix’s highly successful series Sacred Games which was co-directed by Anurag Kashyap andVikramditya Motwane may be directed Motwane alone,” says the source.
