Reportedly, Nayani Dixit, who played the role of Kangana Ranaut’s friend Sonal in 'Queen' revealed that Vikas Bahl tried to harass her too. She said that doing the film was the biggest mistake of her life. Vikas was honoured with a National Film Award for directing the Kangana Ranaut starrer 'Queen'.

Nayani Dixit said that she totally supports the girl who has accused Vikas and stated that whatever the girl has accused Vikas Bahl of, is not at all wrong because he also tried his hand on her. She literally told him that if he does it again, she will resort to hitting him. She further said that she is sure he did the same with the former Phantom employee in question as well. Vikas also mistreated her on the sets after she rejected his indecent advances. She alleged that Vikas harassed other girls on the sets too. According to reports, the actress disclosed that they kept them in a 2-star hotel. When she complained that she is not comfortable, Vikas had the audacity to tell her that she can share his room.

Kangana who is known to be fierce, herself has taken a stand against Vikas and has claimed that he used to boast about having casual sex with a new partner every day while filming Queen and shamed her for not partying. The 'Manikarnika' star had also stated that he would hug her very tightly and smell her hair on sets. 

His Phantom co-partners, Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane have also spoken out against Vikas Bahl and have apologized to the employee for not taking stringent action. In an interview, Vikas Motwane called Vikas Bahl a sex offender. Due to a certain clause in their company, the other three partners cannot remove Vikas from the company, so after a long discussion, Anurag Kashyap decided to do the right thing, he decided to dissolve Phantom.
