Actress Sunny Leone feels she lives in a bubble, and says that she would like to believe that the whole dialogue around women empowerment and the #MeToo movement has changed people’s mindset.

After making quite an impact in the West, the #MeToo wave swept into Bollywood last year. It was triggered off when actress Tanushree Dutta accused veteran actor Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her in 2008, on the sets of the film “Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss”.


Gradually, many more similar allegations emerged in the world of Bollywood, with women naming and shaming predators.

Asked to comment on the change that has come with the #MeToo movement, Sunny told IANS: “I don’t work in an office. I live in a bubble but I do think and I do believe that the more women talk about these issues of sexual harassment or (instances of people) making them feel uncomfortable at work, whether it is women or men… I have to say that it does happen to men as well. It is just not recognised because ‘he is guy what is the big deal’.”

“If someone is bothering them at the work space or some place else, the more that they speak up, the more they make it aware that no it is not okay … I think yes things will change.”

“Especially when so many things have come out through social media, media outlets that I have to assume that people are thinking twice that ‘ohh am I being videotaped, recorded or will she have a moment (in the future)’. I am sure that it makes (such) people uncomfortable,” she added.

Sunny was glad that a message around the importance of consent was included in web series “Ragini MMS Returns Season 2”. She has a cameo as a paranormal expert in the ALTBalaji series. (IANS)

She took to Instagram to share her experience, detailing that doing all that over the six months period left her with "permanent stretch marks". "Gaining 20 kgs in 6 months and loosing it all within 6 months that too in my thirties messed up many things in my bodya I also have permanent stretch marks as well but art comes to life with a price and more often than not price is the artist him/herself," she wrote.

"Thalaivii" showcases the varied aspects of Jayalalithaa's life, tracing her journey as an actress at a young age to becoming the face of Tamil cinema, as well as the rise of the revolutionary leader who changed the course of the state's politics. Talking about her upcoming works, Kangana currently has 'Dhaakad'.

She is also shooting for her next 'Tejas', where she plays a fighter pilot. The Indian Air Force was the first of the country's defence forces to induct women into combat roles in 2016. The film takes inspiration from the landmark event. 'Tejas' is directed by debutant Sarvesh Mewara.
