Nayani Dixit accuses Vikas Bahl of harassment, says he offered to share a room with her
here seems to be no respite for filmmaker Vikas Bahl as the allegations against him are piling up with each passing day. A few days after Kangana Ranaut came out in support of a woman crew member who accused Bahl of sexually harassing her during the promotional tour of Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet, her Queen co-actor Nayani Dixit has recounted her horrifying experience of working with Bahl.
Nayani Dixit, who played Kangana’s friend Sonal in the 2014 film, revealed that Vikas tried to harass her too, and doing Queen was the biggest mistake of her life.
In an interview to an entertainment portal, Nayani came out in support of the girl. She said, “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.”
The actress added that her reaction to his indecent proposal infuriated the filmmaker and he blasted her on the film sets. “Now when I look back, I realized that why this behaviour. Since he did not get a chance on me, he was taking revenge,” said Nayani.
The Queen actress said that it wasn’t the only time he tried to get close to her. She recalled another incident where Vikas offered to share a room with her. She explained, “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!”
She also recalled an incident where Vikas offered to share a room with her. She explained, “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!”
She added, “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 after me. Even Kangana Ranaut was witness to this drama and even she was taken aback. She remarked, ‘Tu pagal hai kya?’”
