Famous for her bold self and extremely candid and honest interviews, Kangana Ranaut is one of the most loved and looked-upon actresses in the industry.

Tanushree Dutta’s sexual harassment allegations against yesteryear actor Nana Patekar has further given an impetus to the #MeToo movement. Ever since, many unbelievable allegations were made against renowned celebrities from the glamour world under the #MeToo movement. Speaking of Kangana’s role in here, it is not unknown to us that her affair with superstar Hrithik Roshan ended with an ugly brawl in public. Shocking revelations were made against him by Kangana on many public platforms.
Taking a dig against her once-beau Hrithik Roshan, Kangana, once again spoke her heart out. Suggesting to ‘boycott’ Hrithik alongside many men, she shared, “There are men who make false promises of love and marriage to a girl to get them into a relationship that is also a type of harassment. There are married men who keep their wives as trophies and keep young girls as their mistresses like Hrithik. Nobody should work with such people. They should be boycotted”.
Kangana has also spoken against her Queen director, Vikas Bahl, apart from many other ladies imposing sexual harassment allegations against him. In an interview with India Today, Kangana stated, “Totally believe her. 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 sickness. He partied every night and shamed me for sleeping early and not being cool enough."

Kangana also stated that Vikas would make her feel really uncomfortable for ‘holding her really tight’ and ‘smelling her hair’. Recalling their meetings, the Gangster actress shared, “But still every time we met, socially greeted and hugged each other, he'd bury his face in my neck, hold me really tight and breathe in the smell of my hair. It took me 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.”
However, the irony in the story lies in the fact that soon after Vikas was accused of sexual misconduct by many women, Hrithik Roshan, who was about to work with him in his latest, Super 30, made some important statements. He shared his views in a tweet which could be read as, “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.”
Speaking about the dire consequences that Vikas is facing, Kangana stated, “Whatever is happening with Vikas Bahl is absolutely correct. There are many people like Vikas Bahl he is not the only one. We still have a lot of work to do it so we should not start the celebrations as yet. We have a long way to go. We have to make this place [world] absolutely safe for woman." Vikas was a co-producer of production house, Phantom Films, along with partners Anurag Kashyap, director Vikramaditya Motwane and Masaba Gupta’s estranged husband, Madhu Mantena. The production house has now been dissolved. (Checkout! Hrithik Roshan's Love Life: Parents Had To Intervene To Ask His Co-Star To Stay Away From Him)
To give you an update of the ongoing circumstances under the #MeToo movement, Producers’ Guild of India has decided to form a committee, wherein, all such exploitation cases can be looked upon and the person found guilty could be fired from the organisation. Also, FWICE [Federation of Western Cine Employees], has decided to spurn Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath and Nana Patekar, against whom serious allegations have been made.
