Post Tanushree Dutta‘s allegations on Nana Patekar, women from various sectors came forward to name and shame the perpetrators who sexually harassed them. Many renowned celebrities from Vinta Nanda, Shweta Pandit to Sona Mohapatra among others have made allegations on the A-listed celebrities for sexual misconduct. A few days back Anirban Das Blah, co-founder of talent management agency Kwan was accused by four women of taking advantage of them and harassing them. Now another actress named Meira Omar has made similar charges against him.

Actress Meira Omar who appeared in a very small role in ‘Wajah Tum Ho’ (2016), hearing the other women’s #MeToo stories, got the courage to speak up on her ordeal. Speaking to the Times of India, Meira said that in 2016, she met Anirban but the meeting didn’t go well.  Anirban then called her back saying that his team go for girls similar to the ones who are in the top of their career today.

Anirban told Meira, “They don’t know how to spot a star in the making. I am the one who creates stars and sees something when no one else can. That is what I’m known for.” One day Anirban asked her to come to his office, which turned out to be his house in Juhu. He then went on saying that he helps girls come out of their shells, bring out their inner sexiness and awaken desires in other men. He then narrated an incident as to how he once locked a shy girl in the balcony of the same Apartment and forced her to masturbate. He then praised Meira and said that he would help her if she surrenders to him completely and trusts his process.

Post this meeting, Anirban gave Meira an assignment of picking out four sexy looks which made her very uncomfortable. “I started realising that he didn’t really care about the assignment; basically, he just wanted me to undress in front of him,” added Meira.

Meira said that she will just show him her pictures. Anirban again called her to his apartment and called her sexy and leaned over to kiss her. When she backed off, he said: “You have to kiss, touch or tease to make it big.” He also said that he did these to many women. This incident made her leave and she started ignoring his calls.

Meira is happy to see the change now. She said, “I don’t want to be part of the culture of silence anymore. I’ve also realised that this was indeed an actual assault. I never gave my consent to any of this. He saw a vulnerable girl and did what powerful men often do — take advantage of it. This is what happened to me and I wish that other women, who he has hurt, will come forward. I know we are many, as I have been hearing stories that have shaken me to the core.”

Two days back there were reports of Anirban attempting to commit suicide after many women accused him of sexual harassment.
