We should name and shame those who sexually harass others, actress Vidya Balan told media recently.“I think people who have suffered this only know what exactly does it feel like when you’re really in an uncomfortable situation. When someone just rubs or touches you with his hand, sometimes I get really angry. So I think in that sense, there are a lot of degrees in sexual harassment. I am very glad that people are talking about it now. Women are talking about it and they should talk about it because it is not their fault. We should name and shame those who are sexually harassing others, undoubtedly,” she told media during promotional programme for Tumhari Sulu.

After the Harvey Weinstein controversy led to disclosure of sexual harassment cases in Hollywood, prominent actors such as Irrfan Khan and Richa Chadha have opened up about casting couch in Bollywood. Tumhari Sulu recently released a rehashed version of Mr India’s Hawa Hawai.

Vidya said that Sridevi liked the song. “After watching the song, Sridevi told me, she found me very cute in the song and she found the song lovely, especially the way we did it... (was) very happy with it. I don’t want to say much, but it would be better if you ask her because I can only tell you this much.”
