It will not be wrong if we say that, the year 2017 was of the brave Bollywood actresses. There were some revelations in Bollywood that made the sensation everywhere. After accusing Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, a campaign called #MeToo started worldwide. Under this campaign, women from all over the world have disclosed the sexual abuse events that took place with them through social media. The influence of this campaign was also seen in Bollywood. Some actors have expressed their grief boldly.
One of the disclosures has been made by the actress Swara Bhaskar about how she was asked to work in the film. Swara Bhaskar had said that there was a demand for body shaming in order to work in the film. After I refused, I was thrown out of the film, she said.
This talented actress had also made a sensational disclosure while becoming a part of the campaign. Radhika had said that once I had received a call for a movie. The person demanded to meet me alone. I refused him. Otherwise, I would have been victim of sexual harassment.
TV actress Ishita Dutt also did such a horrific disclosure. She said that I too faced such an incident. While going to the college, I became victim of the sexual abuse. I used to go to the college by the railway. One day, someone touched me wrongly. He was a very old person. But I did not sit quietly. I pulled him out before the whole crowd.
