  • Kangana Ranaut accuses Queen director of sexual harassment

Her account drew instant support from Kangana Ranaut, the star of Queen, who described her own experience with Bahl's sexually inappropriate behaviour in an interview with India Today. "That being said, I fully understand that it is no excuse whatsoever and all of my actions above I'd hope are demonstrative of every intention on my part to set this right".

She went on to add, "I said it (about nepotism) out of observation, I am not an activist here, though I would love to serve my society; nepotism exists everywhere, we have grown up seeing it".

Kashyap said given limited options, the company chose to a "strong moral stand" that included barring Bahl from the office premises and taking away his signing authority.

"What makes her so unsure of my claims, I am known to be an articulate person, I have represented my country in many worldwide summits, I am called as a thought and youth influencer to these summits, I am not known because of my dad I have earned my place and credibility after struggling for a decade", she had stated further.

After corroborating Vikas Bahl's sexual offence against the Phantom Films' crew member, company partners Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane have issued an apology for whatever that transpired in 2015. I can not blame anyone but myself. "According to legal advice provided to me then, I was told I had very limited options. He partied every night and shamed me for sleeping early and not being cool enough", she added. I believe this girl.


Kashyap ended with an apology to the survivor and an assurance that "this will never happen again on my work premises ever again (sic)". He's preyed on a young woman, abused her trust, ruined her life. This didn't go down with the latter, who lashed out at Sonam for her remarks. "But he got really drunk (or pretended to be) and he forcibly tried to kiss me on the lips, I pushed him and left immediately and he pretended not to see me leaving". "But now we are determined to do better".

"This industry is extremely ill-equipped to handle matters such as sexual harassment, copyright, censorship and all the things we put ourselves in dock with". We believe her completely.

Kangana Ranaut is well known face for Telugu audience as she made her Telugu debut with Ek Niranjan in 2009, in the direction of Puri Jagannadh where she shared the screen space with Baahubali fame Prabhas. On Saturday, Phantom Films announced that it was being dissolved.

On Sunday, Kashyap also admitted that he knew about the sexual harassment allegations against Bahl and feels sorry for not taking a right decision.
