Bollywood Actress Kangana Ranaut lashed out at Sonam Kapoor, for her comment regarding the Queen actress sharing her #MeToo story against filmmaker Vikas Bahl. The issue has now sparked into a different controversy altogether, with Kangana hitting out at actress Sonam Kapoor and once again raising the issue of nepotism.

When Sonam Kapoor was asked about the allegations against the filmmaker Vikas Bahl at an event in Bengaluru she said: “This whole thing at happened at Phantom. I find it disgusting. If you read that article, it is disgusting. And I know these people, I know all of them. I don’t know how I will deal with these people. All I know is I believe this woman. I find this behaviour despicable and cowardly."

She added, "When my father read these articles (Tanushree and Phantom stories), he said whatever is happening to these men, they deserve it. I come from a background like that. I said I know dad; then why is nobody saying anything or doing anything. ‘He said: beta, the world is such but we need to change it.’ So, I mean, even if it is one person saying something, it makes a difference."

"She (Kangana Ranaut) says a lot of stuff and sometimes is hard to take her seriously. I love the fact that she has spunk and she says what she believes. I really respect for that," Sonam said.

Kangana Ranaut in an interview hit back at Sonam Kapoor.

"So, Sonam Kapoor has the license of trusting some women and some she won't. What makes her so unsure of my claims? I am known to be an articulate person. I have represented my country in many international summits... I'm called as a thought and youth influencer to these summits. I am not known because of my dad I have earned my place and credibility after struggling for a decade," said Kangana.

Kangana Ranaut also added "She (Sonam Kapoor) isn't known to be a great actress, neither she has the reputation of being an good speaker. What gives these filmy people right to take digs at me. I will demolish each one of them."

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap announced the dissolution of Phantom Films, after a woman came forward and recounted her tale of sexual harassment at the hands of director Vikas Bahl, one of the founders of Phantom Films. She said that Bahl had assaulted her during the promotional tour of Bombay Velvet in 2015. The matter was not given due importance till two years later.
