Hard to take Kangana Ranaut seriously, says Sonam Kapoor
The #MeToo campaign has started with sparks flying around as many actresses have started pouring in their opinions, expressing anguish by disclosing stories of sexual assaults and behaviours which are rampant in Bollywood.

After Tanushree Dutta took a bold step of taking the plunge by sharing her ordeal of being sexually harassed by actor Nana Patekar on the sets of a film, it's now Kangana Ranaut's turn.

Kangana has come out with the allegation that Queen director Vikas Bahl had behaved inappropriately with her during the shooting of the film.

However, the incidents has now taken a new turn with Kangana hitting out at Sonam Kapoor, who while speaking at 'Vogue We the Women' summit in Bengaluru and had praised Tanushree Dutta for her courage by coming out in the open against powerful men. When Sonam was asked about Kangana's #MeToo story she said that sometimes it is difficult to take the actor's words seriously as she says many things.

Sonam said, "I think Kangana wrote something. Kangana is obviously Kangana Ranaut. She says a lot of stuff and sometimes it is hard to take her seriously. I love the fact that she has spunk and she says what she believes. I really respect her for that. I don't know him, I don't know the situation. If what is written is true, then it's disgusting and awful. If it's true, then they should be punished for it," Sonam said.

However, the whole thing did not go down well with Kangana. The Manikarnika actor in an interview to Pinkvilla responded to Sonam's statement by saying, "What does she mean by saying, 'it's hard to believe Kangana?' When I am sharing my #MeToo story, who gives her a right to judge me? 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 and I have represented my country in many international summits. I am 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."

The actress also remarked that neither was Sonam a good actress nor a good speaker.

With this war of words, the controversy has blow out of proportion. That's Bollywood, that's the story of the real film industry.
