Kangana Ranaut accuses ‘Queen’ director Vikas Bahl of sexual misconduct
India’s #MeToo movement has started, and a lot of women are finally finding the courage to speak up against sexual harassers. Kangana Ranaut, who has always spoken up for what she believes in, has called out ‘Queen‘ director Vikas Bahl for behaving inappropriately with her.
In an interview with India Today, Kangana said that Vikas would often boast about having casual sex with a new partner every day even though he was married. Earlier, Vikas had been accused of sexual misconduct by an employee from Phantom Films, but no concrete action was taken against him. Kangana said that she believed the woman because Bahl’s behaviour was always uncalled for.
“But still every time we met, socially greeted and hugged each other, he’d bury his face in my neck, hold me really tight and breathe in the smell of my hair,” Ranaut said. “It took me great amount of strength and effort to pull myself out of his embrace. He’d say ‘I love how you smell K’. I could tell something is wrong with him,” she added.
Vikas Bahl’s film, ‘Super 30’ is set to release soon and we’re wondering what impact will these allegations have on the film.
Finally, we hope this movement leads to more confessions from Bollywood’s women who have faced harassment. Truly, it’s high time that all of this stopped.
