Ashish Patil, the business and creative head of Y-films, had been accused of se*ual harassment after which Yash Raj Films has taken action against him!
After popular names like Nana Patekar, Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Luv Ranjan and many others were accused of se*ual harassment, Y-Films head Ashish Patil too has joined the row. An anonymous Twitter user shared her #MeToo story in which she alleged that Patil made se*ual advances towards her, which she had to indulge in, as he kept giving her hopes of working with Yash Raj Films.
After the tweet came out, YRF requested the victim to share all the details with Presiding Officer of their Internal Complaints Committee. And even assured her strict action will be taken against the one proven guilty.
Now YRF has terminated the services of Ashish Patil as their statement says, “Yash Raj Films terminates the services of Ashish Patil: Vice President- Brand Partnerships and Talent management and Business and Creative Head- Y Films, with immediate effect.”
