Since Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment and threats on a movie set a decade ago, several women have been opening up on their own experiences with people from the film industry. Earlier on Saturday, a woman accused filmmaker Vikas Bahl of sexual assault and now, another woman has come out, accusing singer Kailash Kher of sexual misconduct.
The woman in question is a female photojournalist named Natasha Hemrajani who has made allegations of sexual advances against the singer. She visited his house along with another female colleague for an interview when the incident took place in 2006. She elaborates the incident in a series of tweets.
With these recent instances, we can be rest assured that times are changing. Just like Hollywood had the #MeToo movement, Bollywood too seems to see an uprising of an equivalent. Even as the film industry at large seems to steer clear of controversies, the recent Tanushree Dutta case has seen several A-list stars lending their support to the actress. In fact, in the case involving Vikas Bahl, his Queen actress Kangana Ranaut is vehemently backing the lady involved. The times, they are a changin!
