Kangana Ranaut is fierce with her acting, choice of films and even her words and opinions. Her unabashed, blunt views and brutal honesty is something which has won her many friends and many enemies as well. However, that has never stopped her from speaking her mind anyway.
The actress recently hit headlines when she accused director Vikas Bahl of sexual misconduct.
“Every time we met, socially greeted and hugged each other, he (Bahl) would bury his face in my neck, hold me really tight and breathe in the smell of my hair. It took me a great amount of strength and effort to pull myself out of his embrace. He'd say 'I love how you smell K'. Even though Vikas was married back in 2014 when we were filming Queen, he bragged about having casual *** with a new partner every other day. I don't judge people and their marriages but you can tell when addiction becomes a sickness. He partied every night and shamed me for sleeping early and not being cool enough.”
Bollywood has not been very vocal about the whole Vikas Bahl incident but recently, Imran Khan came out to speak against the director.
Now, in an interview, Kangana spoke about the #MeToo movement and called out Hrithik Roshan as well. Speaking about how justice should be served in the case of Vikas Bahl, she added, “whatever is happening with Vikas Bahl is absolutely correct. Our industry still has a lot of people who don't behave well with women. They assault them, they harass them, they should also be punished. People who keep their wives as trophies and keep young girls as their mistresses should also be punished... I am referring to Hrithik Roshan, people should not work with him as well.”
Kangana and Hrithik have been at loggerheads ever since their spat got ugly in public, when the actress openly claimed that he was dating her while he was still married, an allegation he later denied. Interestingly, Hrithik had recently spoken about the entire Vikas Bahl incident himself.October 8, 2018
There has been no response from actor in terms of this quote by Kangana but it seems like the spat will only get murkier.
