I felt it was below my dignity to get work in any other way, reveals Vidya Balan!

Beautiful Vidya Balan is one actress, who has never shied away from speaking her mind out. Lately, during an interview with a news agency, Vidya spoke about women facing sexual harassment at their workplace.

She revealed, “Women never had the courage to talk about sexual harassment as invariably the finger would be pointed back at them. Which is why, I think whether sexual harassment or rape, women have always found it difficult to talk about it.”

Vidya Balan further added that sexual harassment is not limited to the entertainment industry alone. “It exists in every industry. Here (in the entertainment industry) it gets written about. The film industry is a part of the society. Here it gets amplified and that is the only difference. In the West, it has happened to powerful and successful people and they did not do anything about it. So you think, ‘I am not the only one (facing it)’. But people have started talking, revealing things,” she revealed.

On how to deal with sexual harassment at workplace, Vidya revealed, “I could walk away because I had a home to go back to. I had a family, I had food on my plate and I had nothing to worry about. Lot of people have circumstances that are different. As a woman, you have the sixth sense and instinct. No one has asked me for a coffee. If I went to have coffee with someone, it was because I wanted to go. I felt it was below my dignity to get work in any other way. I don’t judge others who had to use any sort of means as everyone’s circumstances are different.”

On the film front, Vidya Balan is busy promoting her forthcoming movie Tumhari Sulu. It is a comedy movie helmed by adman Suresh Triveni. The movie also stars Neha Dhupia and Manav Kaul in pivotal roles. It is slated for release on November 17, 2017.
