Swara Bhaskar earned huge name and fame as an actress all over the Nation. She talked about #MeToo movement and about even Raju Hirani kind of director facing such incriminating allegations about sexual harassment. She talked about her experience with a director without naming him.
She said, “I did not know and understand that this director was indirectly trying to have a sexual relationship with me. He always on some or other pretext touch me and try to come in contact with me. I never thought he would do so but he did try to somehow charm me, as they say.
He might not be a bad guy but he always has been a guy who thinks about what he gets in return and ask people to reciprocate for giving them chances. I did not understand the situation properly and clearly six years ago but controlled myself and my emotions to not make it big and also did not let him touch me.
Another director 3 years ago, tried to act funny with me for sexual favours and I set him right immediately. It is hard to process through such situations and maintain your composure. Men may not be bad but when they do think about women as easy and sexual objects, they should be given counselling.
In our country, we judge women who come out as victims in these situations and question them more giving men options to go scot-free. This needs to change for better society,” concluded the actress.
