Deepika Padukone opens up about sexual harassments during early stage
New Delhi : Deepika Padukone is now one of the most successful actresses in Bollywood industry. But, during her early phase of career, things were not that easy and calm. She recently talked about her battle with depression and sexual harassments she faced.
In an interview to British publication Evening Standard, Deepika spoke about the same and shared the kind of advice she was given early in her career. She said, “There were lots of things I was advised [to do]. To get a b*** job, do the beauty pageants. They felt it was the right way to be recognised or picked up by a Bollywood director or producer. It might be an easier way to achieve what you want to achieve. But I haven’t been that person; I’ve always followed my gut.”
On asking to make a comment on #MeToo movement and its implimentation in Bollywood, she said, “We’re in the same position as the rest of the world, I think we’re all in this together. There’s so much more awareness. There are so many people who speak up and I think in the same way that we see the wheels moving in the right direction globally, I see the same thing happening in India as well.”
On the work front, she is yet to announce her upcoming project.
