In October 2017, Vinod Dua had lashed out at actor Akshay Kumar for passing a vulgar remark on his daughter, Mallika Dua, during the shoot of an episode of the comedy show, The Great Indian Laughter Challenge.

A year later, in October 2018, India’s award-winning film director Nishtha Jain, famous for Gulabi Gang, published a long Facebook post alleging Vinod Dua of harassment and passing a ‘lewd’ joke at her. Vinod Dua refuted the allegation and termed it as highly absurd and baseless.

We hope for all the strength and love to Mallika Dua and her family.
