A Bollywood actress recently opened up about alleged sexual harassment by Nana Patekar on the sets of a 2009 film. Since then, the #MeToo movement started with many known names coming out in open through anonymous accusations. Celebs like Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, Rajat Kapoor, Kailash Kher, Subhash Ghai, Piyush Mishra have been named under the movement by now. Now, the latest experience shared by an actress is about Sonu ki Titu Ki Sweety director Luv Ranjan.
The actress was quoted by Midday saying, “Luv asked me to strip down to my bra and panties. He said he wanted to see my body so he could check if I needed to lose weight. He said they were not recording anything, and the cinematographer would also leave the room, so I needn't worry. After that, it all gets blurry. My heart was pounding, and I rushed out saying I had to leave, and wasn't comfortable with it. I went home and tried to forget about it." She also further added, “Then he asked me if I used condoms. The last straw was him asking me if I masturbate. By then, I was scared and asked if I could leave.” #MeToo Hits Sajid Khan!

However, when the Pyaar Ka Punchnama maker was asked about the same, he reacted to it saying, “It's absurd. It's so absurd that I don't know what to say except that I deny it. I don't know how to react to an anonymous allegation beyond this and am willing to face any legitimate enquiry."
The movement has gained a momentum on the social media and many women are coming out with their ordeal. While some are choosing to reveal their names, others choose to be anonymous. However, people are now keen to know when the A-listers will come out and speak on the subject.
