With the #MeToo movement gaining momentum in Bollywood, more and more names have been popping in several headlines for alleged sexual harassment in their line of work. Recently actor Rohit Roy has been accused of sexually harassing an unnamed woman. The lady approached a journalist through social media, alleged that she had been persistently harassed by the actor.
The woman has claimed that Rohit would send her “suggestive” messages when she was about 16-year-old. “He’s harassed me on several occasions since, trying to get me to kiss him. Including when his wife (was) in the next room,” she wrote.
She also alleged, “I was trying to get a job in school (and) he invited me to his office to chat. Thankfully, I never ended up going.”
In a report by News18, when Roy was asked to comment on the said incident, the actor strongly denied the allegations. He said, “I had checked the entire account, that’s not me at all. I would love to know who this is. It’s not actually sexual harassment or anything like that. I saw the entire thing. I think there has been some mistake. I’d love to know who I have harassed in my life. Please find and let me know.”
Over the past few weeks, women of Bollywood have taken names of biggies in the film industry which include Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl and Kailash Kher to name a few.
