Earlier this month, a female employee working at Phantom films accused one of its co-founders, Vikas Bahl of sexual harassment at workplace. In the wake of these allegations made against the Queen director, Kangana Ranaut was asked to comment on these claims made against him.

Known to always be forthright about women’s empowerment, Kangana said:

This is a very serious issue. I can only say that whoever faces a situation like this, it is very courageous of the women to come out and speak about it. If women are facing these situations, they should be encouraged to talk about it and shouldn’t be shamed by their families, environment and colleagues. We need more women to come out and talk about the issue because that’s how the awareness will come about. That is how I feel.
