That's how diva Karisma responded diplomatically to the media's question about the current #MeToo movement in #Bollywood . I believe, due to their family background, Karisma and Kareena had no such experience unlike the fellow actresses. Like I said earlier in my post, Bollywood industry is cruel, fake and manipulative but NOT all the filmy people have been involved.
I personally encourage everyone esp. women to stand up for themselves and have the courage to speak and act against the sexual harassment in their workplace and society.
"I was so shy earlier, remember? In the beginning, whenever anyone came to sign me, I would send my mother to meet them. That's why initially, everyone thought I was not serious about my work. It's so bloody frustrating when people refuse to take you seriously. Especially frustrating at a time when I was beginning to feel so complex and confused. I had just walked out of Dharamji's film (Barsaat), and I really don't know whether I'd done the right thing or not. I was very disturbed because despite walking out of the film and despite all the curiosity I had generated, I had merely five films in hand. It makes you feel so insecure, things like these. I used to be depressed all the time. Those days, my dad used to pacify me saying, 'It's not how many you sign, it's what you sign.' I was convinced. And then slowly, instead of doing every film that came my way, I signed only selected ones." - @therealkarismakapoor
