Kangana just recently revealed that the director of the movie ‘Queen’, Vikas Bahl sexually harassed her on the sets of the film.
She had stated earlier that, ““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”.
Sonam Kapoor on the other hand blatantly dismissed Kangana’s claims. When the Veere Di Wedding star was asked to comment about the controversy and Kangana’s statements at a recent event she said that while the incident was disgusting and heartbreaking, Kangana shouldn’t be taken seriously. “It’s hard to believe Kangana. Kangana says a lot of things,” Sonam had said.
In return, Kangana lashed out in an interview to an online portal. “What does she mean by saying, ‘It’s hard to believe Kangana’. When I am sharing my #MeToo story, who gives her a right to judge me? So, Sonam Kapoor has the license of trusting some women and some she won’t. What makes her so unsure of my claims, I am known to be an articulate person, I have represented my country in many international summits, I am called as a thought and youth influence to these summits, I am not known because of my dad I have earned my place and credibility after struggling for a decade.”

Women need to stand together! irresponsible media have misquoted me or taken my quote out of context and made other women react. All I want to say is that all I have is compassion and love for you. I’m proud of where I come from and so should every other woman or man. Let’s stand together and speak up. Let’s not pull each other down with bitterness and negativity. Love is always the answer. ☮️ 💖 drawing by @stayinkspired
