Kangana Ranaut, who recently accused Queen director, Vikas Bahl, of sexual harassment attacked Hrithik Roshan, saying that no one should work with him in the industry adding that he [Hrithik] deserves to be punished in wake of the #MeToo movement in India.
“Our industry still has a lot of people who don’t behave well with women. They assault them, they harass them, they should also be punished,” she said before adding, “People who keep their wives as trophies and young girls as their mistresses should also be punished… I am referring to Hrithik Roshan people should not work with him as well.”
Kangana earlier claimed that Hrithik was dating her behind his wife, Sussanne Khan’s, back, an allegation that Hrithik has always denied. The two have been at loggerheads for almost two years with their separate versions of the story and have even taken each other to court over it.
Meanwhile, Hrithik, who was working with Bahl for Super 30, had tweeted saying that it was impossible for him to work with someone who was guilty of sexual misconduct.
“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,” he had written.
