Yes, I have faced my share of harassment in both industries, now says Amyra Dastur


After actress Tanushree Dutta opened the floodgates for the #MeToo movement in India, several people in the film industry have talked about their own experiences. Actress Amyra Dastur says she has been a victim of harassment at the hands of men and women herself. However, she says she isn’t brave enough to name and shame them.

“I haven’t faced a casting couch in the South or Bollywood. But yes, I have faced my share of harassment in both industries. I don’t have the guts to name them because they are powerful people — men and women who made sure I felt helpless,” she said. She says one day she will “definitely call them out on it”.

Citing an incident, Amyra said: "I have had an actor squeeze himself up against me during a shot in a song and whisper in my ear that he was so glad that I was in the film with him. When I threw him off me and refused to speak to him again, he made my experience miserable."
