The sexual harassment conversation of Bollywood finally seems to be getting a direction, thanks to Kalki Koechlin. The gritty actress has finally walked into a territory which no other actress have gone to when they were asked to speak about sexual harassment.
Everybody talks about directors and producers when talking about sexual harassment in Bollywood but few have actually spoken about casting directors, which most struggling actors say is where the sexual harassment actually begins in Bollywood. "I know several girls in the industry who are struggling and who are constantly being discriminated against because the way they look but nobody is talking about them," said Kalki in an interview to BBC.
Kalki then went on to speak about the late night calls from casting directors which is kind of a no-go zone on Bollywood for several actress. "(While talking about harassment) People don't talk about the phone calls from the casting directors at 2am in the morning. They keep silent about it because there's no famous person to headline it," said Kalki while describing sexual harassment in Bollywood.
So, finally the conversation is going somewhere. Let's hope more people actually get the courage to speak up about it.
