“As an ethical responsibility for our commitment and to respect the reporting and the process that will follow it, we have decided to remove the name of the reported person from the film credits of Copy Light and the film’s publication materials,” he continued.
Rekata Studi and Kaninga Pictures said they would be committed to providing a safe and free space from sexual harassment in the film production environment. They also promised to side with survivors of sexual harassment.

Sur does not remember anything that happened when the photo was taken at a community theater party.
