#MeToo in Bollywood: Kangana accuses Queen director of sexual misconduct

News18 also reported that the director will not be a part of Super 30's promos. The latter has stated that Bahl used to behave in an unwelcome fashion with her during the making of "Queen". "And I really respect her for that", Sonam said.

"I can only promise, which may sound meaningless at this point, that I will do whatever it takes to break this culture of enabling the predatory behaviour. Look at his audacity!", Nayani added. We have to see what Kangana says about Hrithik's comments.


Queen movie was a turning point in the career of Kangana Ranaut.

After actress Kangana Ranaut, actor Hrithik Roshan has reacted to ongoing Vikas Bahl's sexual harassment controversy. "I was determined to say what I felt was right but the matter was pushed under the carpet and I didn't hear any updates about the same".


After film-maker Anurag Kashyap announced that disbandment of his production house Phantom Films, an anonymous woman approached him and told him that the co-founder of the company, Vikas Bahl had molested her in 2015 during the promotional tour of Bombay Velvet.

"This could perhaps also be why she eventually backed out of signing the document that was being put in place capturing the terms of how this would be dealt with", he added. The actor, who stars in Bahl's Super 30, said he has requested the film's producers to take a "harsh stand if need be". Soon after, an expose in Huffington Post the survivor's account in detail. She claimed that credits for the film's success should actually be assigned to the chief assistant director on sets: "She knew her work very well".


At We The Women Asia event curated by journalist Barkha Dutt in Bengaluru on Sunday, Sonam Kapoor was asked whether anyone from the industry will speak up against Vikas Bahl, who is a prominent filmmaker. "Warna jisne Queen banaya, woh Shaandaar jaisi itni buri film kaise bana sakta hai", she said. However, before they could formalise it, Kashyap informed them that the survivor didn't want to pursue it any further with the boyfriend fearing her name would go public.
