It all started after Tanushree Dutta opened the Pandora’s box by accusing Nana Patekar of Sexual Harassment in 2008 during the shoot of Horn Ok Please. Post that a frenzy began in which a number of Bollywood personalities have been accused by women of sexual misconduct. Last week, Alok Nath was accused by Vinta Nanda of rape and sexual harassment and post that, the authorities like CINTAA, FWICE and Producers Guild has come in to action.

 

Now, another veteran actor from Bollywood has come under the scanner. Yes! Actor-Poet-Writer, Piyush Mishra has been accused of Sexual Harassment by a woman on facebook. A woman named Ketki Joshi, took to facebook to discuss her ordeal that dates back to 2014. She mentioned she met him in private party at her friend’s place and that she was a fan of his work. He asked her to come sit next to her and she complied as she loved his work. But what she was in for, she didn't’ know. She went on to tell that, “He was drinking all through the party and was too drunk by the time of wrap up. Everyone was leaving. I came with a close friend, so I was supposed to go back home with him. I was waiting for my friend to get free so we can head home. He was sitting in a chair and as soon as I passed near him, he grabbed my hand and started rubbing his hands against mine. I pleaded to the host with my eyes to do something. As I was making another round to terrace, he again grabbed my hand and started rubbing it. I stood there waiting for someone to come n take him to his car. He suddenly stood up and took a step towards me. I sensed he was coming to hug me or grope me.”

 

Take a look at her complete post:

 

 

The woman also mentioned that she had to ask her friend’s help to get out of the situation and that she decided to share the incident to give courage to other women in the society. “I am putting this because he might have done this to other women in absence of anyone else. I want to give them courage to speak up. I don't care if he files a defamation case against me for this. If it needs to be said, I must say it.” With this post, yet another name has been added to the list of accused sexual offenders. The whole Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar laid the foundation for the start of Me Too movement in Bollywood. A lot of women spoke up and lots more are speaking up against sexual harassment at their workplaces. Amidst all this, the Me Too Movement is surely gaining momentum in India.

Accusations without proof is the new trend. Shahid, Akshay etc are next mark my words. Stop believing everything someone says anything can be made up and since a lot of people don't remember anything for years back it is easy for them to give in.

Is this a #me too movement or kiki challenge that everyone is following ??

Anura Kashyap you are next!

Is it just myself who feels this me too movement is going a bit too far. why did not these women speak up then ?

Et tu Piyush Mishra??? Cheeee!

This is a garbage accusation done to seek fame and publicity. Useless!

He looks the type. Anurag Kashyap's friend's circle...
