Netflix Clears Working On Sacred Games Season 2 After Harassment Investigation
On Thursday, Netflix stated that they will be working with the same producers of the hit Indian show Sacred Games for a second season. The company claims to have some an independent investigation into allegations of sexual harassment before announcing the decision of Sacred Games season 2.
According to an email sent to Reuters, Netflix said it will be standing by Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap, who own the production house was behind the Mumbai-set thriller TV series.
“We continue to collaborate with our production partners to ensure and maintain a safe and respectful working environment,” said Netflix.
The crime drama had previously become wrapped in the #MeToo controversy after Varun Grover, a writer of the show, was alleged of sexually harassing a woman during his college days.
The woman shared her experience on Twitter with an anonymous account in the wake of #MeToo movement in India. Grover has, however, denied all such claims made against him.
The writer wrote a detailed statement on Twitter where he said, “Really unfortunate that these completely fabricated and defamatory allegations have been made on me. None of the sequence of events as described in that anonymous screenshot happened ever and I deny all of it with all the conviction I have in my bones.”
“At this time, we are evaluating options on the path forward,” Netflix said.
