This also gives rise to instances of sexual harassment at workplace as was evident from the chilling stories shared by actors Tanushree Dutta, Chinmayi Sripada and Sruthi Hariharan.
Recently in an interview with Times of India, actor-comedian Ali Asgar opened-up that he too hasn't been spared. Yes you head it right, Asgar played the popular role of Dadi in the show Comedy Nights with Kapil. He shared an incident when he was molested in a wedding held in the Capital.
"Wherever I go for such shows, I don't let the anchor announce my name, I just enter as Dadi. At this event, by the time I entered, people were already drunk. Unhone uske bad jo hamla kiya hain mere upar - they were putting their hands on my chest, they were pinching my butt, I was molested.! There is a girl on my team, and she managed to save me, warma main nika pa raha tha. Mera tab yeh question tha, ki bhai aapko pata bhi hai ki ye ek aadmi hai jo aurat ka role kar raha hai? And the second question was - even if you don't know, ye toh ek buddhi aurat hain na, usko toh chhor do!" [sic] Ali told TOI in an interview.
