Actress Swara Bhaskar, who has been a supporter of India’s #MeToo movement, says that sexual harassment cases at the workplace are like an epidemic. She hopes to bring awareness about it via the film and television industry.

The Cine and TV Artists Association (CINTAA) recently announced that it will be setting up committees to tackle sexual harassment in the industry and will have actors Swara Bhaskar, Renuka Shahane and Raveena Tandon among others as members.


Talking about her role in the committee, Swara said, “I am part of a sub-committee which is formed by CINTAA which will conduct workshop regarding awareness against sexual harassment at the workplace for its members. We have total 24 unions in our industry and it has more than 5 lakh members in it so we will try to work together on this front with these unions.”

“When you hear about #MeToo stories then, you will realize that cases of sexual harassment at workplace are like an epidemic. It is like a disease so, awareness regarding that is really important so through this sub-committee, we will generate awareness among our members,” said the actress, who was at The Wedding Junction Show 2018 here.


Tanushree Datta Started the MeToo Movement few days back in Bollywood.

On the acting front, Swara has two web-series in the pipeline.

“One of them is titled ‘It’s Not That Simple’ season 2… Apart from that, I am doing an interesting series called ‘Rasbhari’,” she said.

“After that, I am starting another very interesting series at the end of this year in which I am playing a police officer for which I have to speak in Marathi, so that’s a challenge because I have been living in Mumbai from many years but its first time that I will be speaking Marathi for my project.”

Swara’s upcoming web series “Rasbhari”, directed by Nikhil Bhat, will be a 10 episode series set in the local culture and flavour of small town Uttar Pradesh. She will be playing an English teacher named Shanoo in a Meerut school who has caught the attention of a boy from the 11th grade. (IANS)

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month.

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, who is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month, said on Sunday that it was a difficult process to decide whether to undergo a third right-knee surgery after having two last year. But following Wimbledon, where he was "really unhappy" with his performance in reaching the quarterfinals, Federer opted to go through with it.

Federer, who made a late decision to attend this year's Laver Cup in Boston -- a tournament held between teams from Europe and the rest of the world -- said on the sidelines of the event that the recovery and rehabilitation are "going to take me a few more months and then we'll see how things are at some point next year". "The reception I've received, everybody is so upbeat that I'm here. They wish me all the best and they don't even see the crutches. They just want me to be good again and enjoy the weekend," Federer said in an interview for the event with former world No. 1 Jim Courier.

"I've seen some incredible tennis, some great matches and it's been wonderful. I'm really happy I made the trip," the winner of 20 majors was quoted as saying by atptour.com. On why he opted for a third surgery, the tennis ace said, "I was just nowhere near where I wanted to be to play at the top, top level. But I tried my best and at the end... too much is too much. Now I've just got to take it step by step," Federer said.
