Hrithik Roshan opens up on Vikas Bahl’s sexual misconduct, supports Kangana’s statement
After Tanushree Dutta opened up on the sexual assault by Nana Patekar, many women came out with their stories of being sexually harassed either at the workplace or outside it. Kangana Ranaut, who is known for her opinionated statements, accused the ‘Queen‘ director Vikas Bahl of behaving inappropriately with her. Meanwhile, yet another renowned actress accused Vikas of forcibly trying to kiss her on her lips.
While Vikramaditya Motwane, Hansal Mehta and Anurag Kashyap called Vikas a sexual offender, Hrithik tried to refrain from commenting. When HuffPost India tried to ask his reaction on it, the actor said, “Let me get updated and I will get back to you.” After that, the ‘Super 30’ actor never got back to the publication.
Now, Hrithik has opened up on the case through his tweet. In his tweet, the actor has requested the producers of ‘Super 30’ to take a stand on the matter. Though he has not mentioned the name of his ‘Super 30’ director Vikas Bahl’s name, it is obvious from his tweet that he is hinting at him. He wrote, “It is impossible for me to work with any person if he/she is guilty of such grave misconduct. I am away and have access to only sporadic information. I have requested the producers of ‘Super 30’ to take stock of the apparent facts and take a harsh stand if need be. This is not to be hushed or brushed under the carpet. All proven offenders must be punished and all exploited people must be empowered and given strength to speak up.”
Here’s his tweet.
Hrithik and Bahl worked together for ‘Super 30‘, a film based on mathematician Anand Kumar, who helps the poor students to get into the IITs. The film is slated to release on January 25.
