Soon after reports of filmmaker Vikas Bahl allegedly molesting a female colleague hit headlines in April, rumours of a rift between Bahl and the other members of the production house, Phantom Films, including Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena also spread like wildfire. But Motwane refutes the rumours, claiming that no obstacle is strong enough to break them apart.

“We boys are rock solid,” Motwane tells mid-day, adding, “Of course, there have been ups and downs, but things are good between us. Nothing is big enough to move us. Our production slate is a testament to the equation we share.”

The filmmaker adds that the team of four has a number of projects lines up in the near future, which should quell rumours of a split. “We are collaborating with Netflix and Amazon Prime. I believe that our work should speak for us. Give it time, answers will be found.”

It was suggested that Kashyap was among the wishing to part ways from the company, with news about his collaboration with Aanand L Rai for Manmarziya, giving credence to the rumours. But Motwane points out, “After Manmarziya, Anurag’s next, Mukkebaaz, will be produced by Phantom only. We are too busy focusing on the good work that needs to done to think about these rumours.”

Motwane, who is currently in the midst of the post-production work for his vigilante film, Bhavesh Joshi, featuring Harshvardhan Kapoor, might also helm Sacred Games, the Netflix originals series starring Saif Ali Khan, adapted from Vikram Chandra’s bestseller by the same name. “Saif likes us a lot, and thus, he came aboard. We are extremely excited about it.”
