As the #MeToo movement is in full swing in the Bollywood industry, actress Kangana Ranaut has launched a fresh attack on actor Hrithik Roshan. Kangana had earlier accused director Vikas Bahl of sexual harassment against her and came out in full support of the ex-Phantom Films employee who had similar allegations against the director.
According to Hindustan Times, Kangana reacted to Vikas Bahl’s Phantom films being dissolved and it seems she is loving every bit of what’s happening with him. Kangana said:
“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.”
But Kangana did not stop there. The actress went on further to accuse Hrithik Roshan of cheating on his wife Sussanne Khan, and believes that people should not work with him. Kangana claims that Hrithik dated her at the back of his wife, which he has always denied. The two actors have, now for almost two years, narrated totally different versions of the story and also dragged each other to court over the matter.
“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.”
However, Hrithik has taken the allegations against Vikas Bahl quite seriously and has refused to work with him for his next film Super 30. Hrithik took it to twitter and said that a ‘harsh stand’ will be taken against Vikas if needed.
“It is impossible for me to work with any person if he/she is guilty of such grave misconduct. I am away and have access to only sporadic information. I have requested the producers of Super 30 to take stock of the apparent facts and take a harsh stand if need be. This is not to be hushed or brushed under the carpet. All proven offenders must be punished and all exploited people must be empowered and given strength to speak up.”
The fight between Kangana and Hrithik had died down of late but Kangana’s fresh attack could give rise to a new controversy again. Now what’s left to be seen is how Hrithik reacts to the allegation.
