Kangana has lashed out at Sonam Kapoor for her flippant reaction to the Queen’s star accusations against Vikas Bahl. “What does she mean by saying, ‘it’s hard to believe Kangana? When I am sharing my #MeToo story, who gives her a right to judge me?” said Kangana Ranaut.
“I am known to be an articulate person and I have represented my country in many international 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,” read the statement by Ranaut.
While Tanushree Datta got an appreciable support from the Bollywood fraternity for her #MeToo story, Kangana Ranaut may find it difficult to garner the same support. She has offended many Bollywood celebrities by her conflicting comments on their acting abilities and nepotism in Bollywood; Sonam Kapoor seems to be that one in the lot.
Sonam appreciated Tanushree but expressed concerns over the statement of Kangana Ranaut. “I think Kangana wrote something. Kangana is obviously Kangana Ranaut. She says a lot of stuff and sometimes is hard to take her seriously. I love the fact that she has spunk and she says what she believes.
I really respect for that. I don’t know him, I don’t know the situation. If what is written what is written is true, then it’s disgusting and awful. If it’s true, then they should be punished for it,” Sonam said. Kangana Ranaut has earlier accused Vikas Bahl, the director of movie ‘Queen’ for sexually harassing her.
Following Tanushree Datta, the crew member of the movie Bombay Velvet came forward with her sets of allegations of harassment on director Vikas Bahl. The actress Kangana Ranaut in her latest interview said she supported the woman because she too had undergone similar treatment at the hands of Vikas Bahl.
“Even though Vikas was married back in 2014 when we were filming Queen, he bragged about having casual sex with a new partner every other day. I don’t judge people and their marriages but you can tell when addiction becomes the sickness. He partied every night and shamed me for sleeping early and not being cool enough,” said the actor in an interview with India Today.
Kangana continued, “I often told him off. He was scared of me but still every time we met, socially greeted and hugged each other, he’d bury his face in my neck and 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. I could tell something is wrong with him. I believe this girl (crew member who accused him) ‘.”
Nevertheless, with the latest incoming story of sexual harassment from another Bollywood actress has the Me Too movement finally taken a flight in Bollywood?
