Kangana Ranaut tears Hrithik Roshan apart: No one should work with him

India Today logo India Today 2018-10-11

The #MeToo storm has taken over India and sexual predators and harassers are being uprooted, and brought to light.

The trigger was Tanushree Dutta's accusations against Nana Patekar. The actress said he sexually harassed her on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2008.

Gradually, skeletons started spilling out of the closets, and many prominent faces in Bollywood have been accused of sexual harassment by several women.

After a woman crew member accused Queen director Vikas Bahl of sexual misconduct in 2015, Kangana also shared her harrowing experiences with the filmmaker, who was also the co-founder of Phantom Films. The production house has now been dissolved.

Bahl, who was part of the film 83, had to leave the project, due to the allegations.

When asked about Bahl, Kangana said in an interview, "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."

She then made this revealing statement, "People who keep their wives as trophies and keep young girls as their mistresses should also be punished."

Asked if she was talking about Hrithik Roshan, she said, "I am referring to Hrithik Roshan, people should not work with him as well."

Hrithik and Kangana have had a painful history, that involves much mudslinging and a slew of legal notices.

While Kangana insisted that she and Hrithik had a torrid affair during the filming of Krrish 3, Hrithik denied it completely and said that she was defaming him.

Meanwhile, Hrithik, who was working with Bahl for Super 30, had tweeted saying that it was impossible for him to work with someone who was guilty of sexual misconduct. "I have requested the producers of Super 30 to take stock of the apparent facts and take a harsh stand if need be. All proven offenders must be punished and all exploited people must be empowered and given strength to speak up," he had written.
