According to a report filed by Mumbai Mirror,  the woman, who accused the filmmaker of molestation during a Goa trip, approached the stakeholders at the production house. 

Following a complaint to Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena who are partners at Phantom, the report says that the matter was escalated to Reliance Entertainment which has 50% shareholding in the production house. Thereafter, a committee under Vishakha guidelines was set up by the company to investigate the matter.
