‘Bisht, Please!’ features one of TVF’s core team member, Nidhi Bisht, in the lead role. The series is a comical and light-hearted take on a small-town girl’s misadventures in Mumbai. “It is an exaggerated version of my personal life,” said Nidhi during an earlier interview.
It remains to be seen when TVF decides to release the new series. So far, no new official date has been announced. The company’s social media pages have also not been too active over the last few days.
Meanwhile, TVF recently issued a new statement promising deep investigation into all allegations, and that they are ‘determined to win the love of their fans back.’
It’s been a tough couple of days for us at TVF, as you would know. We needed to first & foremost take care of our internal team that has been most impacted by the recent events.
Yes, there have been allegations of misbehaviour against our Founder, from several women. When the first blog appeared on March 12th, it shocked all of us including our extended set of associates. The allegations were severe. We were confused & taken aback.
The blog alleged that he/she was an employee with the organisation & even indicated specific content production they were a part of. We immediately began checking the facts internally.
We did send out an instant response, which may have been a bit too quick & emotional. We recognise that we should have handled that response better. However, it is a fact that we have found no records of any such person on our pay roll, in that given time period, as described in the blog.
Even as we were dealing with the first episode, several other allegations surfaced soon thereafter. Please know that we are sincerely looking into each one of them. We are committed to getting to the bottom of these allegations. Many of you have asked so we would like to confirm that yes, we have an ICC Committee set up in each location.
We as a team of 240 strong professionals are determined to work hard in winning your love back. We will do everything in our capacity to learn & get better, get bigger. Give us that chance.
