He was scared of me but every time we met, he'd bury his face in my neck, hold me really tight and smell my hair. "I thought the #MeToo movement would catch up but I was wrong", Kangana revealed. In a statement, Kangana, while backing the woman accusing Bahl, said "I totally believe her".

Kangana continued, "I often told him off".

At We The Women Asia event curated by journalist Barkha Dutt in Bengaluru on Sunday, Sonam Kapoor was asked whether anyone from the industry will speak up against Vikas Bahl, who is a prominent filmmaker.

In a two-page statement on Twitter, Kashyap said his legal aides told him that there was nothing he could do to fire Bahl from Phantom Films, which they set up seven years ago.

After the end of a party at the Park Hyatt resort in Goa, the woman said Bahl offered to accompany her to her room. "I feel that the lack of women crew members enables this male entitlement and trivializes (or brushes under the carpet) such incidents easily". At that time, the story was conveniently killed, but I supported her at that time as well. Kangana is obviously Kangana Ranaut. "Sometimes, it's hard to take her seriously, but I love the fact that she has spunk and she says what she believes in".

In an interview to Pinkvilla, Kangana Ranuat slammed Sonam Kapoor and said, "It's hard to believe Kangana'?" I am deeply, truly sorry to the woman in question and she has known this all this while. When I am sharing my Me Too story, who gives her a right to judge me? What makes her unsure of my claims? "And the only thing I can say is that this will never happen again on my watch". People are not responsible for you (the newcomer), you have to be persistent, observant to know things.

"At a personal level, I have been partially following some informal/unsaid rules as far as my personal working ecosystem is concerned and I am going to stringently enforce them from here on. I find the behaviour despicable and cowardly". When my father read these articles (Tanushree and Phantom stories), he said whatever is happening to these men, they deserve it. However, I have to share what I felt about the recent allegations that I have come out. I said I know dad; then why is nobody saying anything or doing anything.

After several attempts to bring the #MeToo movement to India, it's Tanushree Dutta's reminder about the allegations she had raised against Nana Patekar, that has opened the floodgates.
