Me Too movement has brought a massive change in India with women from all walks of life coming out and sharing their horrific sexual harassment incidents. Adding to the strong voices, veteran actress Soni Razdan has now shared her Me Too story. Soni Razdan, mother of actress Alia Bhatt recalled the incident.
While calling herself lucky for escaping it, she said, “Like there was an incident that happened to me when I was on a film shoot and somebody tried to rape me, for example, that kind of thing. Luckily they didn’t succeed.”
The actress who had earlier said that women should not be judged for not sharing their stories, reasoned why she never spoke or reported that incident to anyone, “You know the only reason I never said anything at that time and it sounds really odd maybe but I realised if I would have opened my mouth that person would have gone through a lot of problems. He had a family, small children. And at that time I said, ok, nothing really happened, I managed to control it but obviously I never spoke to that person again. I did not, not talk about it because of any shame or anything like that. I felt that I would be hurting his family, whom I knew.”
Soni Razadan also spoke about Alok Nath who has been accused of sexual harassment by Vinta Nanda among others said that, she didn’t like the way he looked at her.
