After Kangana Ranaut, Nayani Dixit accuses Vikas Bahl of sexual harassment


After Kangana Ranaut, another ‘Queen’ actress Nayani Dixit accused director Vikas Bahl of sexual misconduct.

"Whatever the girl has accused Vikas Bahl is not at all wrong because he also tried his hand on me. I literally told him that 'main tumhe maarungi if you do this again'. So I am sure he did the same with the girl in question as well," Bollywood Hungama quoted Nayani as saying.

Nayani Dixit alleged that Mr Bahl was unnecessarily rude with her the following day on the set, "Next day, when I came on the sets, something went wrong with my hair. I didn't get it as it's not my area of concern. But Vikas blasted me and he behaved very weird with me. Now when I look back, I realized that why this behaviour. Since he did not get a chance on me, he was taking revenge."

In her interview, Nayani Dixit also claimed that the filmmaker even offered her to share his room when ‘Queen’ was being filmed in Delhi, "They kept us in a 2-star hotel. When I said that I am not comfortable, Vikas told me that he can share his room with me. Look at his audacity!"

Ms Dixit added that not only she but Vikas flirted with other girls as well. Kangana Ranaut intervened: "We were shooting for the London Thumakda song and in the crew, there was a 21-year-old local Delhi girl who was in the costume department. Vikas flirted even with her and she was very uncomfortable and she later confided to me that why this person is always behind me. Even Kangana Ranaut was witness to this drama and even she was taken aback. She remarked, 'Tu pagal hai kya?'"

Phantom Films founded by Anurag Kashyap, who formerly co-owned Phantom Films along with Vikas Bahl, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena, had been dissolved.

Commenting on the same, Nayani Dixit said, "Thank god it's shut. Phantom Films, the worst production house I have ever worked in during queen, with shittiest people and shittiest attitude towards new actors with money exploitation".
