In Bollywood, seveal veteran actors, directors, singers have been accused of sexually exploiting women in the industry. Recently, Priyanka Chopra also admitted that she faced sexual harassment in the past, reports the indiatimes.com.
Although, she didn't divulge much detail about the incident. While speaking at the Women in the World Summit 2019, Priyanka Chopra said that sexual harassment had become a norm with women, but now things are changing due to the support women have been showing for each other.
Priyanka further added that with the effect of #MeToo movement, now women are not scared or ashamed of sharing their ordeal. ‘We always had a voice.
Just nobody heard us. Now because of the support we are giving each other, nobody can shut us down. And that's an incredibly powerful thing to see.
Now if I have a story I don't feel I am alone anymore - and I am not ashamed of it,’ the actress said.
On being asked if she too faced sexual harassment ever, the 'Mary Kom' actress said, ‘everybody in this room has probably faced one because it had become a norm with women’.
Priyanka Chopra said that #MeToo movement doesn't cover only Bollywood but every industry.
