You must have heard about a term called, MeeToo movement. If not then let me tell you that this movement was started in Hollywood in which people from Hollywood shared their experiences of sexual harassment and sexual assault. Celebrities used hash tags with their stories of assault. It was around in the month of October that the movement became famous.
Recently, Radhika Apte shared her personal experience of assault with the hash tag, MeeToo at an event where she said that to bring such a movement to the Indian entertainment industry, artists need to have a good support system.
The actress reportedly said, “I can share one incident that happened recently, I had actually hurt my back. We did the shoot and I was heading back to my room with another guy who was in the same lift. He was part of the film but we had not spoken much. He said that 'Let me know if you need me in the middle of the night for help, I can come and give your back a rub."
She further continued and said, "But the good part was that the atmosphere on the sets was so easy and comfortable, I told the filmmakers and they had a meeting with him in person. Then I came to know that the culture that he comes from is such that he didn't realise that he made me uncomfortable with that statement. However, later he never made me feel uncomfortable and apologised.”
Radhika Apte has always been vocal about sexual assault in the industry and this time too she spoke about her experience in the public platform.
