Vaibhav Vishant, the casting director of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Belbottom’, denied the allegations that linked Ayush Tiwari to the film. Tiwari has been accused of raping a TV actress on the pretext of marriage. Vaibhav issued a statement to clarify that the accused worked as an intern in his company and had nothing to do with Belbottom or its casting. He urged the media portals to stop associating the upcoming film with the case and said that Tiwari did not act in the detective thriller in any capacity.
“It is disturbing to tarnish the name of the film and others associated with the film with false and untrue allegations. I am the casting director of Belbottom. Individual Ayush Tiwari was a freelancer intern at my company and had nothing to do with No. The film or its casting has nothing to do with Belbottom. I hope the police conduct a fair investigation and justice will be served. However, I would request media publications to rectify the facts and link Belbottom to the case. Stop it.
