Women should speak up about sexual harassment in B'wood: Neha

Friday, November 10, 2017

Actor Neha Dhupia says it is important for women who have suffered sexual harassment in the industry to come out and speak about it so as to save others from facing a similar fate.

Recently, Hollywood witnessed the Harvey Weinstein scandal which has put the spotlight on sexual abuse in the entertainment industry. Two of Neha's co-stars, Irrfan Khan from "Hindi Medium" and Vidya Balan from "Tumhari Sullu", also came out to share their experiences, where the former said he was asked to compromise for work.

In an interview with PTI, Neha says, "I think it's very important that safety begins at home. If anyone is facing that in the industry, they should come out and talk about it because by not talking about it, they are not protecting themselves and also hurting other women."

The 37-year-old actor says it women who speak up need absolute support.

"If it is happening today with them, tomorrow it will happen to another womanmay be to another degree. Speaking up about it is very, very important. They need immense support, whether it comes fromthe press or family," she says. The actor is currently gearing up for her next release "Tumhari Sullu", directed by Suresh Triveni.

The comedy-drama is about a happy-go-lucky Mumbai housewife, Sulu (played by Vidya), whose routine life changes when she unexpectedly lands herself the job of a night RJ on a radio station.

Neha, who plays Vidya's boss in the film, says the film chronicles the story of every woman.

"It is a very special film. It's everyone's story but more importantly every woman's story. There are points in the movie you'd want to get up and clap for her-whether you're a man or a woman. It's the most basic story we are trying to say in a sweet way," she says.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)This is the right time to ask for help if you need it. Adjustments are necessary almost at every level. You must adapt to some things that you cannot change. Do not be rigid and accept readily with grace. Use your money wisely, for there may be several demands. A long distance journey to a pilgrim spot or the need to meet a person you look up to is likely. The need to get an unbiased opinion about your affairs is strong.
