Legendary actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who usually steers away from controversial subjects, has finally spoken up on the ongoing issue of sexual harassment in Bollywood.
The actress has broken her silence and told The Telegraph, “A movement such as the #MeToo movement … has brought out a lot of conversation and sharing. The good thing is that people are talking. I don’t think this (subject) needs to restrict itself to one part of the world. That is definitely positive, which has come about with this entire subject.” Earlier when the issue of sexual harassment was at its peak Aishwarya’s former Hollywood manager had told that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein had tried to make advances at her. However Aishwarya neither confirmed nor denied this.
Aishwarya further added, “If a woman feels compromised and she feels the need to share an experience that has completely challenged her sense of being, it is amazing that she comes out, speaks forth about it, and takes the people to task. This idea does not limit itself to show business or the film industry. It is people discussing it from all walks of life.”
We completely agree with you on this one Ash!
