Alia Bhatt’s mother opens up about her MeToo moment

MeToo Movement has opened its wings in the country and has taken a high flight with many women and celebrities coming out with their abuse stories and taking a stand for themselves against sexual harassment. Alia Bhatt’s mother opens up about her MeToo moment.

The actress, who has been a known name in Bollywood as well as in television industry, says that she never reported the incident that time because she didn’t want his family to go through the trauma of knowing about his actions. “You know the only reason I never said anything at that time and it sounds really odd maybe but I realized if I would have opened my mouth that person would have gone through a lot of problems. He had a family, small children. And at that time I said, ok, nothing really happened, I managed to control it but obviously I never spoke to that person again. I did not, not talk about it because of any shame or anything like that. I felt that I would be hurting his family, whom I knew,” she added

Talking to The Quint about the #MeToo wave and how women have suffered at the hand of many powerful men in the industry, Soni Razdan revealed that she is grateful that she hasn’t faced sexual harassment when she approached somebody for work but accepts that she did face it in other ways. Soni Razdan revealed about an incident when a person tried to rape her but failed in his attempts.  She said, “Like there was an incident that happened to me when I was on a film shoot and somebody tried to rape me, for example, that kind of thing. Luckily they didn’t succeed.”
