Actress Anushka Shetty emerged as one of the top heroines of South Indian cinema after a series of hit films with big stars and directors.

However, after the release of Bhaagamathie in 2018, the actress took a sabbatical from films. This year, the actress made a comeback with a multilingual film Nishabdham that released on an OTT platform and received mixed reviews.

Recently, the actress revealed that she faced sexual harassment in the initial days of her acting career.

"I would not say that there were no casting couch incidents in the cinema and that the thing happened to me, but no one bothered me after that because I did not agree to it," she opened up.

Anushka also agreed that the #MeToo incidents are not only common in the film industry and women face harassment even in other fields.

"It is wrong to force a woman when she has no choice," she added.

#MeToo is a social movement that exposes sexual abuse and sexual harassment towards women.
