Bipasha Basu opens up about experiencing harassment at the hands of a ‘top producer’
The glamourous world of the film industry is not all glossy and spectacular. Like any other field, this industry too harbours its own dirty little secrets which are more often than not brushed under the carpet. Actress Bipasha Basu recently recalled her experience of being harassed by a ‘top producer’ when she had just entered the Bollywood. The actress even shared how she handled the entire incident.
In a recent interview with Pinkvilla Bipasha recalled how early in her career a ‘top producer’ used to harass her via texts. Revealing about the incident, Bipasha told the Entertainment portal, “I was a young girl and I was staying Alone. I always had this image of mine which was fierce and of someone who won’t tolerate ant bulls**t. So a lot of people were scared of me anyway. But there was this one time, I remember when I signed a film with a top producer. I had come back home and I got a text message from him saying ‘Missing your smile’. I was too young and I felt a little weird. But I ignored it. After a few days, he again sent me the same text.”
Sharing about how she got rid of that producer, the actress said that she mistakenly sent an expletive-laden message about her harassment experience to the same producer. The message was actually meant to be shared with her friend. Fortunately, the text messages from the producer stopped after that. “I told my secretary to take the signing amount and return it to him because I didn’t want to work with him anymore,” Basu further shared.
Well, that was quite a weird incident. How we wished she had revealed the name of this ‘top producer’. Anyways, we are glad that Bipasha opened up about it as her story may inspire others to come out and share their experience.
On the work front, Bipasha is currently seen in the show ‘Dangerous’ alongside her husband Karan Singh Grover.
