The worst, it seems, is now behind him. Subhash Kapoor, lately beleaguered by charges of sexual harassment, has quietly started shooting for his next film Guddu Rangeela.
Subhash and his cast comprising Arshad Warsi, Amit Sadh and others left for Shimla last week where the director is valiantly trying to piece back his scattered life by focusing on his work.
To the director's relief and good fortune the film's entire cast and crew pitched themselves in Subhash Kapoor's support.
"He is now recovering from the blow," says a friend of the director. "Luckily for Subhash, his producers Fox Star studio are not fazed by the unsavoury controversy. When Subhash offered to postpone the first schedule of Guddu Rangeela in Shimla, his producers insisted he go ahead with it."
The director's wife too has been supremely supportive in these trying times.
