Earlier, a HuffPost report outed Queen director Vikas Bahl as a sexual offender. The victim had come out with her story in which she claims that Vikas masturbated on her in a hotel room. Soon, Kangana Ranaut, who was the lead actress in the Bahl's Queen, spoke up against him. She said that she believed the victim as Vikas had behaved creepily with her as well. Now, another actress has alleged sexual misconduct on Bahl. The actress has wished to stay anonymous, in a report published by Miss Malini.
The report adds that the woman is a reputed actress. Her boyfriend has also corroborated with her story. The entertainment portal quotes her:
"He’s (Vikas Bhal) has always been dodgy, so I’ve never hung out with him alone for that reason. One day he was having a party where a lot of people I knew were going so I felt safe. But he got really drunk (or pretended to be) and he forcibly tried to kiss me on the lips, I pushed him and left immediately and he pretended not to see me leaving. At least 20 other people were at this party. I left in a rush went to my boyfriends house because I was so disgusted but he kept sending me texts – saying “Why did you leave, I could have dropped you”. I wasn’t drinking, smoking, smoking up or doing anything. I had just had my dinner and gone with some writer buddies.That’s his strategy, he pretends to be drunk. He caught the corner of my mouth when he tried to kiss me and I pushed him, not enough people were around to have seen it. But after I left he kept asking, “Are you hungry, should I make you some kebabs, did you eat?” feigning ignorance. That’s what he does. Pretending to be drunk then saying things like, “I didn’t do anything, did you do something?”This is why I am not requesting him for work, and have boycotted him entirely socially and professionally. His ex-wife knew about his shenanigans too. He’s basically ruined her life. He got fired from some places he worked at before on similar ground. My question is why start a company with a repeat offender when you know? This can’t be a surprise to anyone. I am somebody, I have a career and am an actress of repute. Someone who should not be afraid to call cops on such a man and I am yet afraid to name names."
