Mumbai, October 23: According to the current status acquired from the Me Too campaign, every woman living in this violent world has been molested, assaulted and sexually harassed at some point in their lives.

  • Although the world knew this happening since matters relating to our sexual issues are considered as a taboo in our society, the people pretended to be dumbfounded to take the issue seriously under the law.
  • After getting disclosed to the public this time with Me too campaign on social media, as initiated by actress Alyssa Milano, the pain we feel is something that mere words can’t explain.

The Me Too protest doing the rage on social media has brought forth stories from women around the globe who didn’t open up until recently, about such cases because they were victimised.

It all started with several Hollywood actresses announcing up publicly about their painful incidents of sexual allegations against Harvey Weinstein that were kept hidden for years. With one woman supporting the other, the Me too campaign arose high to an increased extent whereby women shared horrifying stories of rape and sexual assault, and so did the standup comedian, Mallika Dua or our Makeup Didi.

“Me Too … in my own car. My mother was driving while he sat at the back with his hand under my skirt the whole time. I was 7. My sister was 11. His hands went everywhere inside my skirt and on my sister’s back. My father who was in a different car dislocated the bastard’s jaw with his bare hands later that night.”

If you are one of them irrespective of men or women reading this, we know you too have been through such disastrous incidents. It’s time to realize that we were overthrown to put down our voices and that by supporting our stories forward as a part of the Me too campaign, it’s not us who should be ashamed of but those who presume to have an upper hand over the other gender.

"Because, as actors we don't go to office everyday where we have the opportunity to form bonds with people over time. So, it's our project and our proximity during that project that gives us those friendships. "

Comedienne Mallika Dua says she doesn’t make too many friends, and is very particular when she forms a bond with someone.

“I don’t make too many friends and I am very particular about the friends that I make. But, some of the best friendships that I have in life are ones that I made through theatre or work,” Mallika said in a statement to IANS.

Mallika will soon be seen in bindass’ “The Trip 2”, which also stars Shweta Tripathi and Sapna Pabbi. The first season brought us a plot that revolved around four childhood friends who go on a road trip in Thailand to celebrate a bachelorette party. The journey, however, turns into an emotional roller-coaster for the girls.

Talking about bonding with her co-stars, she said: “I am eternally grateful for both ‘Trip’ season 1 and 2 because the kind of sisterhood and bonding that I have with Shweta, Sapna and Lisa (Haydon) and now Amyra Dastur is something that you don’t really get to experience.

“Because, as actors we don’t go to office everyday where we have the opportunity to form bonds with people over time. So, it’s our project and our proximity during that project that gives us those friendships. It’s been already few days since we wrapped but I miss them already especially Shweta.”

Shweta said: “Friend — just the word brings a smile to my face. They make our lives complete. The ‘Trip’ story started with a story of friends but none of us ever thought that we’ll become that close in our ‘real’ lives as well. We all are on each other’s instant dial now.”

The show will go live on all bindass platforms in September. (IANS)
