Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who played the lead role in Vikas Bahl’s ‘Queen’, has accused the director of sexually harassing her on many occasions.
The actress said the filmmaker made her feel uncomfortable on many occasions. Kangana’s statement came after a woman employee of the production house ‘Phantom Films’ has reiterated her allegations of molestation against the director.
A female employee of ‘Phantom Films’, which had Bahl as one of the partners, alleged last year that the director had behaved inappropriately with her during her visit to Goa.
In a recent article, the woman employee reiterated her allegations and shared further details regarding that incident. The woman further alleged that although she had reported the matter to Anurag Kashyap, no action was taken and Bahl continued to harass her until she finally quit the company.
Soon after the article went viral, Kangana also raised her voice against Bahl. In her statement, she said, ‘I fully believe the woman. Even when we were shooting for ‘Queen’ movie in 2014, despite being married, Bahl used to say that he have casual sex with a new girl every day.”
“Whenever we met he used to bury his face in my neck and hold me tightly and smell my hair. I had to put a lot of effort to pull myself out of his embrace,” Kangana added.
