He was among one of the producers of the movie.

Last year, the woman employee at Phantom Films, which had Bahl as one of the partners alongside Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena, had alleged that Bahl behaved inappropriately with her during a trip to Goa.

When asked, Khan confirmed the news to PTI, “Yes, Vikas Bahl will not have any credit on ’83’.”

On Monday, Hrithik Roshan, who stars in Bahl’s next directorial Super 30, broke his silence saying it is ‘impossible’ for him to work with any person ‘guilty of such grave misconduct’.
