The Bollywood industry is not over with the Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar issue. Another allegation of sexual abuse boils the atmosphere.
Key Highlights – Bollywood Industry Sexual Cases
- A woman who has worked with Director Vikas Bahl accuses him of sexual assault.
- Where most of the B-Town celeb choose silence, actress Kangana Ranaut speaks in support of the woman.
- Vikramaditya, co-partner of the Vikas Bahl’s Phantom calls him a sex offender.
What Happened: Then & Now
The woman accuses him of sexual assault in a party in Goa 2015. She exclaimed her grief to Anurag Kashyap, but he was least bothered.
She quit her job in January 2017. Anurag Kashyap pleaded her to defame Vikas Bahl in public, but she denied.
It’s sad how people flip. When she demanded help, she was alone, and now people are supporting her.
What’ next In The Bollywood Industry?
Amidst all the cacophony of who did what? Bahl and his friend and the partner in Phantom choose to stay mum. Also, the studio of the movie did not speak up for the allegations. Eventually, most of the Bollywood is silent. Nobody is willing to break their voice and speak up against the injustice done. Few who know about the incident are also stay miles away from the controversy.
Kangana, Sonam Stand For The Woman
Although the Bollywood industry seems to be ignoring the allegations, Sonam Kapoor took a clear stand against the director. To quote her words
The whole thing that has happened at Phantom, I find it disgusting, “If you read that article, it’s disgusting, it’s gut-wrenching. And I know these people, I know all of them.”
It looks as if Sonam is firmly against the director and she is not going to withstand all that took place. After Sonam, Kangana Ranaut did not hesitate to voice her opinion.

Kangana Ranaut Allegations
Kangana stands by the woman who alleges Vikas Bahl of sexual assault. In an interview, Kangana states that the Queen director made her comfortable. She says that at times, Bahl sniffed her and his way of jugging was way beyond formal.
Kangana confirms that even though Mr. Bahl is happily married yet, he brags open relationship and casual sex. She believes that his addiction is turning into a sickness. He needs a new woman every day to satisfy his sex craving.
In a report, Kangana states that Bahl considered she was not cool. Every time she met Bahl, he would hug her, sniff around her neck and sexually smell her warmth. Embarrassed Kangana made efforts to stay away, but Bahl was shameless.
Because Kangana is supporting the woman, Bahl denied working with her, but the Queen girl does not care. She knows what is right and losing a project is far better than losing dignity.
Banned From The Company
Anurag Kashyap seems to be highly supportive now. He states that he was not appropriately advised and was clueless of the real conflict. He stood up to apologize to the woman and assured that all the authorities would be revoked. Vikas Bahl would be banned from the Bollywood Industry.
To voice his words
“According to legal advice provided to me then, I was told that we had very limited options,”. “Now in hindsight and after taking stock of things myself, I can quite see how I was ill-advised.”
Is Bollywood Industry Defaming?
Now who’s saying what and why is a mystery. But the spectators do not love it. Back to the back revelation of misconduct in the B town raises questions. What has happened to the Bollywood Industry, why are women treated as an object of satisfaction? We have stars that portray equality but if they too dwell in the pool dirt, will the audience trust them?
