Aishwarya Rai Bachchan opens up on sexual harassment….

Aishwarya reacts to actors opening up about sexual harassment; says “this does not limit itself to only show the film industry”
What started as a #MeToo movement in the West has spread like a wildfire across the globe boosting every woman’s confidence to speak up on their traumatic experiences. Being sexually harassed is no more treated as a matter of shame for a woman but a lesson to spread awareness and warn other women from falling prey to such lustful men. We heard several stories from Hollywood and Bollywood with the latest being that of veteran actress Daisy Irani who revealed how she was raped at the age of 6 by a man who accompanied her as her “guardian” to a film set.

In interaction with Telegraph, Aishwarya who was recently in Sydney for a brand-related commitment, came in support of the #MeToo movement saying, ” It has brought out a lot of conversation and sharing. The good thing is that people are talking. I don’t think this needs to restrict itself to one part of the world. But this idea does not limit itself to show business or the film industry. It is people discussing it from all walks of life”, she explained.

Not too long ago, there were also reports on how Aishwarya narrowly escaped getting molested by accused Harvey Weinstein. Talent manager, Simone Sheffield, was quoted in the report saying, “I use to manage Indian actress Aishwarya Rai. While dealing with Harvey I found it comical how hard he tried to get Aishwarya alone. But he was a pig… looked and acted like a big bully pig. He asked me to leave the meeting numerous times and I politely declined. When we were leaving his office, he cornered me and said, ‘What do I have to do to get her alone?’ I told him to kiss my black ass. When Ash and I returned to our hotel, I sent Harvey a steel pig trough filled with DIET COKE as a thank you gift for the meeting. Yes, we did do business and yes, he eventually threatened me. Told me I’d never work in this business, blah blah blah…what I said to him, I can’t print. But you can be sure, I never gave him the opportunity to even breathe on my client.”
