In an interview earlier, the actress recalled the times she met Vikas Bahl and said, “Every time we met, socially greeted and hugged each other, he’d bury his face in my neck, hold me really tight and breathe in the smell of my hair. It took me a great amount of strength and effort to pull myself out of his embrace. He’d say ‘I love how you smell K’.”
Following Kangan’s statements, Vikas Bahl’s former wife Richa Dubey called out the actress and asked her to “stop using Vikas for your own vendetta”.
On the work front, Kangana Ranaut is currently shooting for her film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, which is set to release in 2019.
