Bollywood is in a mess as several women have come forward to uncover the dirty secrets of powerful, who have sexually harassed and threatened women since decades. While, we all continue reporting new incidences every single day, now Sandalwood actor Sangeeta Bhat has kicked off the #Metoo wave in the Kannada film industry.
She faced a tough time ever since she entered the industry at the age of 15, owing to her father’s demise. She had a lot to endure through her filmy career and by means of two Twitter posts, Sangeeta shares her horrifying incidences with various filmmakers, actors and so on, without actually naming any of them.
She states that the reason she hasn’t named the accused is because she is concerned for their families. She has also stated that due to her past experiences, she is dealing with depression and is no longer interested in being associated with the world of cinema. She also clarifies that these posts aren’t meant for publicity and she by no means, seeks to speak or discuss further details with the press.
Well, she is the first Kannada actor to discuss her story publicly in the wake of the #Metoo movement.
