At that time the legal process was initiated in the matter. Now the verdict has come and Subhash will heave a sigh of relief.
The Mumbai court has acquitted Subhash Kapoor and Danish Haider in the molestation case.

It is interesting to note here that the #MeToo allegations led to Subhash opting out of the project in which he was supposed to act. Aamir Khan in the lead role. The Gulshan Kumar biopic, titled Mogul, with both Aamir and producer T-Series on board was shelved in 2018 due to pending sexual harassment allegations against Subhash. Later, news came that Aamir is back for the film but nothing is finalized yet. Following the release of Laal Singh Chaddha earlier this year, Aamir announced that he was taking a break from acting to focus on his family. Whether or not Mogul will move on has not been confirmed.
