The ongoing Kangana Ranaut-Hrithik Roshan spat on Thursday took a new turn in light of the #MeToo movement, with Kangana saying that people who keep wives as trophies and young girls as mistresses should be boycotted.

"There are men who make false promises of love and marriage to a girl to get them into a relationship. That is also a type of harassment. There are married men who keep their wives as trophies and keep young girls as their mistresses like Hrithik. They lure young, beautiful girls with the promise of marriage and later try to prove them mad. Nobody should work with such people. They should be boycotted," the Queen actor told a news channel.

She said whatever is happening with director Vikas Bahl — who has been accused of harassment by an employee of his banner Phantom films —  is absolutely correct.

"There are many people like Vikas Bahl, he is not the only one. We still have a lot of work to do so, we should not start the celebrations as yet. We have a long way to go. We have to make this place (world) absolutely safe for woman," she said.

The statement came a day after Hrithik tweeted: "It is impossible for me to work with any person if he/she is guilty of such grave misconduct. I am away and have access to only sporadic information. I have requested the producers of Super 30 to take stock of the apparent facts and take a harsh stand if need be. This is not to be hushed or brushed under the carpet. All proven offenders must be punished and all exploited people must be empowered and given strength to speak up."

The comment pertains to the film Super 30, for which Hrithik and Bahl were supposed to collaborate.

Kangana's Queen co-star Nayani Dixit had also accused Vikas of sexual misconduct.

Kangana and Hrithik have been at loggerheads and had a very painful exchange of words and a legal tussle over the last couple of years.

While Kangana insisted that she and Hrithik had a torrid affair during the filming of Krrish 3, the actor had denied it vehemently.
