The film received praises by critics for its high art content, while some considered it to be controversial because of its infamous X rating. But, the 1972 film is best remembered for an explicit rape scene.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

Schneider was only 19 years old when the scene was filmed with 48-year-old Brando. She was traumatised by the experience.

In a recently surfaced video, the director admitted that he and Brando planned to film the scene without informing Schneider. The director said that he and Brando just before the shoot decided it because they wanted to capture Ms Schneider’s reaction “as a girl and not as an actress”.

Before the French died in 2011, she had revealed that it made her feel “humiliated” and “a little raped.”

She had claimed that it was not in the script and after the scene neither Bertolucci nor Brando apologised or consoled her after the scene.

In a 2007 Daily Mail interview said,“I was so young and relatively inexperienced and I didn’t understand all of the film’s sexual content.” She added, “I should have called my agent or had my lawyer come to the set because you can’t force someone to do something that isn’t in the script, but at the time, I didn’t know that.”

As the video went viral, Hollywood celebs like Jessica Chastain and Chris Evans strongly reacted on Twitter and slammed both director and actor for filming the scene without the consent of the actress.
