The #MeToo movement has reached India and is making a lot of buzz. Many names have come up ever since Tanushree Dutta alleged that Nana Patekar harassed her. Alok Nath, Utsav Chakravarty, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Subhash Kapoor, Vikas Bahl and many other names have popped up.

Another name that has recently joined the list is Varun Grover who is the co-writer of Sacred Games. A screenshot was shared by a woman who has alleged that Grover harassed her during an event. Grover has denied the claims and posted a long note clarifying his stance. In the note, he mentioned that allegations are fabricated and none of the sequence of events described in the anonymous screenshot ever happened. Following the sexual harassment allegations against him, reports have now suggested that Netflix India is contemplating to drop Varun’s name from the credits or might drop the planned sequel to it completely.

A source from Netflix told in.com, “At this time we are evaluating options on the path forward.” A trade source also informed the entertainment portal, “The #MeToo movement is going the Hollywood way. After the news that Reliance is apparently considering dropping Vikas Bahl’s (one of the partners of Phantom,) name from the credits in Super 30, which he is directing, now comes another piece of news. In the light of the recent allegations against one of the writers of Sacred Games, Varun Grover, Netflix is considering some options on how to tackle the situation. They may drop the successful web series completely (which turned around Saif’s career once more) or drop the name of the writer.”

Sacred Games is the first original web series of Netflix India which became a huge hit among the audience, starring Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
