After the recent wave of sexual harassment allegations surfacing in the Hindi film industry, a handful of movie stars have also voiced their concerns. Filmmaker Vikas Bahl — who directed Queen — was accused of sexual assault by a woman following which Queen lead actor Kangana Ranaut also accused Bahl of sexually harassing her.
In response to the news, many celebs have commented including Bahl’s former business partner and one of Bollywood’s top filmmakers, Anurag Kashyap and actress Sonam Kapoor. The latest one to join the tribe is none other than Hrithik Roshan, whose upcoming film Super 30 has been directed by Bahl.
Hrithik took to Twitter and requested the producers of the film to take a harsh stand if need be. “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 wrote.
