Swara Bhaskar on sexual harassment: Shares her horrible experience with a drunk filmmaker


Ever since Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein was (and continues to be) accused of harassment, molestation and rape by over 50 women, more victims of other famous perpetrators have also shared their horror stories. In Bollywood some actresses have openly shared their horrible experience on sexual harassment, but some preferred to be silent.

Now actress Swara Bhaskar opened about her experiences with the casting couch, sexual harassment and instances of sexual misconduct during film shoots. Sharing about her disturbing experience, she said, “There have been catcalls during shoots and eve-teasing on one of my sets. I’ve been groped by a mob during promotions and during a 56-day outdoor at a remote location, when I was still fairly new, the director harassed me with texts and dinner invites. He stalked me during the day and called me through the night. I was asked to go to his hotel room on the pretext of discussing the scene and would find him drinking. During the first week itself, he started talking about love and sex and one night, arrived in my room, drunk, and asked to be hugged. It was scary!" says Bhaskar, as per the report.
Swara also advises women to not be silent and speak up. "We need to stop slut-shaming and ask for a collective platform to deal with this issue. We are all guilty of being in the know and remaining silent. And that is complicity,"
