Queen actress Kangana Ranaut was recently asked to comment on the sexual harassment allegation that the film’s director Vikas Bahl is currently facing. Though Kangana wasn’t keen on answering the question on a platform where she was promoting an independent brand, but she’s never one to shy away from speaking her mind. Without referring to Bahl’s case in particular, Kangana said that it is an act of courage for a woman to open up about such an experience, but it is something that is very important for her to do.
Kangana Ranaut, ActorIt’s a very serious issue. I can only say that it is very courageous of a woman to come out and speak about sexual harassment. It’s not regarding this particular event, because I am not the party involved, but generally speaking, women who face this should be encouraged to talk about it by their families and their colleagues without feeling ashamed about it.
Vikas Bahl directed Kangana Ranaut in the super hit film Queen, which was a progressive story about a girl’s journey to finding herself. Kangana also urged women to always speak out about their issues, but played it safe when it came to the controversy surrounding Vikas Bahl.
Kangana RanautMore women should come out and talk about whatever they feel because that’s how there will be awareness about these issues and of course, there will always be another side of the story as well and then there will be the authorities, who can decide what is the right thing to do. But people should speak up about whatever they feel, whether they are right or wrong, they must speak up and discuss.
