Geetika Tyagi Controversy
After one and a half years, journalist turned Bollywood actress Geetika Tyagi has charged Jolly LLB (2013) director Subhash Kapoor with a serious offence of sexual assault. Interestingly, till date she has kept mum and did not file any complaint against the director for molesting her. It is just only few days back, she has uploaded a video on YouTube (Published on Feb 17, 2014) similar to sting operation to expose the ugly face of the director to the world.
Geetika Tyagi filmed the video with the help of her director boyfriend Atul Sabharwal. Geetika Tyagi controversy is now making news everywhere. The video showed Subhash Kapoor and his wife Dimple pleading Geetika Tyagi not to reveal the fact to the world as the incident might spoil the future of their son.
Dimple was in tears while seeking mercy from the actress. Geetika Tyagi was unmoved despite Dimple’s repeated pleading and the video showed the actress approached towards Subhash Kapoor and vented her anger by slapping him, an act she says will help her let go of the dark past even as wife Dimple helplessly sits by the table. “I’ll probably heal myself after this. Just take care”, Geetika says as she walks out. Geetika didn’t stop here and further turns to Twitter to share the incident.
Geetika Tyagi – Subhash Kapoor Relationship
Now the million dollar question is why Geetika Tyagi waited for so long to expose the dirty face of the director Subhash Kapoor? Is she is in need of media attention at the moment or it is a cheap publicity to pave way for the next season of the reality show ‘Bigg Boss 8’ or whether she was in two minds to expose the true face of the director due to her good rapport with the Kapoor family? Well, Geetika answered all those questions in an interview and cleared her stand for the delay action.
She said Subhash Kapoor and his wife Dimple were family to her and so she just could not run to the cop to lodge a complaint against the director immediately after the incident and moreover, she did not had enough evidence then to prove the misconduct of the director.
She further added that Subhash called her hundred times soon after the incident and also Dimple requested her not to reveal the matter to the world as it would destroy their life and following which Geetika remained silence over the years but she felt frustrated keeping the matter deep rooted inside her for so long and finally she burst out. She explains, it is the Tarun Tejpal incident that activated her to take the stance. She added that after the unpleasant incident, Dimple convinced her that her married life with Subhash ended but later Geetika came to know that nothing of that sort happened and they are very much together and enjoying their life. Geetika Tyagi could not accept this lie and she bounced back. She made up her mind to expose the director to the world and Tarun Tejpal incident gave her strength to move forward.
Question also raised if Geetika is really motivated by Tejpal’s incident then why she took this stance three months after Tejpal’s case, Geetika Tyagi replied, she was busy shooting two films, What the Fish and One By Two. Interestingly, when everything has been exposed Geetika still not lodged police complaint against the director. Listen what the actress has to say, “I will be filing a police complaint anytime now. I wanted to first gather clinching evidence and put it out in the public domain. This will prove useful during police procedures. It’s not easy going to the cops. It takes years to gather that kind of courage. But it was gratifying for me, a victim of sexual abuse, to shame and humiliate the perpetrator, who was family and never a filmmaker. I still get nightmares”.
What Geetika Tyagi Is Hiding
If Subhash Kapoor is guilty, Geetika Tyagi is also not untainted. Media exposed Geetika’s murky past. She cheated on her friend when she was working for a TV channel by stealing her ATM card and withdrawing money from her account. When she was caught, she denied but the CCTV footage of the dressing room proved her fault. Geetika’s murky past put a question mark on her character. Geetika might have proved her stance by downloading the video on net but industry backed Subhash Kapoor and questioned raised on the authenticity of the video. Director Tigmanshu Dhulia is raising doubt over the truth of the video which Geetika recorded with her boyfriend Atul Sabharwal.
According to The Times Of India report, scriptwriter Danish Raza had introduced Geetika and Subhash at a party two years ago where the incident happened. “She told me to go and said she’d take care of him. I left and the next day she casually told me how Subhash had got really emotional that night. She said that he had kissed her and so she kissed him back. But now her version is completely different,” says Danish Raza.
Director Tigmanshu Dhulia tweeted, “If the film industry has any heart, they should boycott Atul Sabharwal since he was part of this vicious scheme to demean Subhash Kapoor”. The director said he was not the only person to share this feeling. “Everyone who has seen the video is criticizing it and questioning its intent and authenticity,” he remarked. Dhulia appealed to the film industry and said, “She is destroying the Kapoor family! Whatever I know, I know through the video. Whatever happened, it happened two years back. Why is she uploading it now? She is seeking cheap publicity. She is trying to get into Bigg Boss House”.
Geetika Tyagi’s case is not a clear case of casting couch. Her late action to bring the matter into the light will definitely work against her and moreover, the authenticity of the video needs to be verified. Such incident needs to be checked with immediate effect or else it would only bring bad name to the world of glitz and glamour.
Why She Uploads The Video On YouTube
While uploading the controversial video on YouTube, Geetika Tyagi leaves a message on YouTube video page to reveal her true intention –
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.
