The grapevine was abuzz with rumours that Vikas Bahl, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by several women in the #MeToo wave that swept the country, has found love in actress Gauahar Khan.
An entertainment website reports that shortly before the scandal broke, Vikas and Gauahar met through common friends and fell head over heels in love with each other. It is being said that Gauahar has stood by Vikas like a rock through the storm, and has often been seen visiting his office and home.
When another publication reached out to Gauahar for comment, she vehemently denied the news. “I don’t want to give it importance by talking about it as it’s a ridiculous story! I don’t want to give attention to something that they have cooked up on their own,” she said.

“They have written about me seen at his office and residence. Why can’t a man and woman just be friends? You cannot be friends with or talk to anybody or hang out with anybody? If you do, that means you are in a relationship with them? That’s weird!” the actress added.
Gauahar recently took to her Instagram account to wish fans a very happy new year. In the caption, she wrote, “single ppl can make a good new year pic too. (sic)”
“I am very much single and in fact, only recently I put up an Instagram post on my handle that said — single people can make a good New Year pic too! My New Year post is about how all you people are posting as couples and I am the only one posting as a single person… I don’t understand how the article forgets that. I am 100 percent single,” she declared.
A former employee has accused Vikas of making unwanted advances at her in 2015. The victim claimed that when she did not give in to his advances, he dropped his pants and began to masturbate. After masturbating on her back, he told her “F**k you, b***h” and left.
Following this, actress Nayani Dixit, who worked with the filmmaker in Queen, said that he “tried his hand” on her. Another unnamed actress alleged that he forcibly tried to kiss her.
