Under #MeeToo campaign, several women from across the globe revealed how they have been harassed at some point in their lives. But in Bollywood, things are not pretty clear. Some actresses indirectly claimed that sexual harassment does exist in Bollywood but the truth is yet to be unveiled.
If a Twitter thread is to be believed, Madhuri Dixit was forced to do a rape scene for a movie. Yes, you read this right! Zehra Kazmi, a Journalist with Hindustan Times penned a thread.
“On the radio today, listened to Annu Kapoor tell the sickening story of how a young, petrified Madhuri Dixit was forced to film a “rape scene” with Ranjit because her director Bapu insisted she couldn’t back out. “Rape scene toh Hoga.”
She further added: “Annu Kapoor’s tone-deaf narration made the incident a juicy tidbit, not the disgusting exploitation it was. While me and my friend cringed and felt deeply uncomfortable, our cab driver thought it was hilarious and laughed at the “rape scene toh Hoga” punchline. The director and crew clapped when she completed the scene, she was too shaken to say a word. The entire film set sounds repulsive!”
This Is How Twitter Reacted:
This is horrific. Bollywood has so many stories like these that are not looked at as assault. Here's another one with Rekha when she was all of fourteen years. https://t.co/qIa5VLL2pf

Do these people realise what effect such braying and bragging has on listeners ?
Such discussions reinforces in minds of people that it's acceptable to exploit and to rape is alright ! Such accounts shud never be spoken of even in private let alone publicly..shameful

Once half the movie is shot with Madhuri.
She then feels, she is not comfortable..
Production incurs loses, Crew loses job, crew doesn't get money, like crew of 200 people, their family suffers too.
Actors have to do whatever is in script.
That's their only job, not a real rape.
