Priyanka Chopra Admits Facing Sexual Harassment
Following the #MeToo Movement, several incidents, especially from the B-Town have so far come to the fore. Now, one of the big shots of Bollywood and former Miss World Priyanka Chopra has reportedly admitted facing sexual harassment.
Recently, Priyanka made the startling revelation that she also had to face sexual harassment during her early days in the film industry.
According to ZOOM, “Sexual harassment had become a norm with women. Now, because of the support we are giving each other, people don’t have the power to shut us down. And that’s an incredibly powerful thing to see,” said Priyanka.
“Everybody in this room has probably faced one because it had become a norm with women. We always had a voice. Just nobody heard us. Now if I have a story I don’t feel I am alone anymore and I am not ashamed of it,” she added.
On the #MeToo Movement, the actress said, “I think people have misunderstood the #MeToo movement if they restrict it only to the film industry. It’s not only that such things happen only in film industry. Women get harassed in every job. What I faced had happened long back but that doesn’t mean I faced it before or while struggling. It happened with me when I was very young.”
Sharing her opinion about discussing on sexual harassment publicly, she reportedly said, “I think people assuming that it’s very current and wondering why I am not talking about it….. that’s a lot of expectation. Every women in the country has dealt with it and I’m sure not everyone wants to talk about it publicly.”
