Vidya Balan, who has proven that women characters in movies can be more than just being an object of glamour, was recently inquired about her return on the Harvey Weinstein episode. In reply, the Tumhari Sulu actor expressed her shock at how no one spoke about an abuser.
The sexual harassment claims by top Hollywood actresses against noted producer Harvey Weinstein has been making headlines worldwide.
Now even Bollywood celebs have started speaking about the prevalent casting couch cases in the Indian movie industry.
According to reports, after Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan has spoken up on the subject.
In a recent interview with an online portal, the actress said that the fact that even top actresses chose to maintain quiet for decades shows how women feel unsafe about reporting such events.
She highlighted that although she hasn't faced such a state of affairs, there are young women who make such compromises as their survival depends on it.
Vidya Balan next will be seen in Tumhari Sulu, which is a comedy-drama film, directed by the Suresh Triveni and produced under the banners of T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment.
