Director Atul Sabharwal is one of the few industry men who stood by Geetika in the troubled times. He made the issue's presence felt on the social networking sites. Atul had been writing a script for Yash Raj Films for a future flick at that point in time.
Rumours are such that Geetika and Atul were dating since a long time. But it seems his involvement in such an issue rubbed YRF in the wrong way. Yash Raj Films is always a brand that distances itself from any stinking controversy. Thus, it is rumoured that they can't afford to be involved in these kinds of issues, for just hiring Atul for writing a new script.
A source close to YRF said, "YRF has never been embroiled in controversies, so Atul was called and it was decided that they would not be working with him." But the production house's spokesperson denied all the rumours, saying "This is not true. Atul is working on his next script for YRF."
When contacted and quizzed on the same, Atul also said, "This is completely baseless news. I am still working on my script for Yash Raj Films." But the source close to YRF maintains that the news is almost true. "YRF has indeed parted ways with Atul, but at the same time they don't want to make things messy by talking about it," Source added.
