After creating quite a storm in the West, the #MeToo wave has now taken over India and many victims of sexual harassment have come out to share their horror stories.
Fatima Sana Shaikh, who made her Bollywood debut with Dangal, got candid about the #MeToo movement during an interview with Mumbai Mirror and said that sexual harassment has been normalised to such an extent in our society that women have come to accept it as normal. She applauded the movement saying that it has made predators scared of being named and shamed in public.
When asked if she has ever faced sexual harassment, the Thugs of Hindostan star said, “I don’t want to expose that side of my life… I’m dealing with it, speaking to people I’m close to. Just like I won’t judge those who want to share their horror stories, I expect not to be judged for not sharing mine.”
Fatima will be next seen in Anurag Basu’s next, which also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra and Pankaj Tripathi. She has also signed Pawan Kriplani’s Bhoot Police, in which she will be sharing screen space with Saif Ali Khan and Ali Fazal.
