Mahesh Bhatt says sexual harassment is not gender biased

Mumbai: Bollywood’s notable producer Mukesh Bhatt says sexual harassment is not gender biased.

Bhatt is upset for being “misquoted” over his controversial comment that “there are women who are exploitative, very cunning and also blatantly shameless to offer themselves”.

Explaining himself he said, “I said that sexual harassment is not gender specific and in some instances, men take advantage of it and in some instances, women take advantage of the same.”

He added that “I stand by the firm belief that sexual harassment should not happen in the first place. It is a plague that needs to be eradicated completely. Both men and women have fallen prey to this.

“It cannot be generalised, or discriminated based on cast, creed, religion or gender. It is great to see people shed all their inhibitions and come out in the open to speak freely about their trials and tribulations.”
