Stand-up comedian Bharti Singh recently opened up about her struggles during her initial days in the industry in a podcast with Maniesh Paul.
Bharti made some shocking revelations about being inappropriately touched by show coordinators back in the day. But the ace comedian said that she did not have the courage back then and did not seem to understand what was happening.
Bharti said, “The co-ordinators of shows misbehaved sometimes. They would rub their hands on the back. It’s not a good feeling, but then I would think that he’s like my uncle, he can’t be bad. Maybe I am wrong
She added that she did not have the confidence to fight but now she can stand up to such bullies, “I have the confidence to fight now, for my body, for my honour. I can now say ‘what is the matter, what are you looking at, go out we are changing now’. I can speak up now, but I had no courage back then.”
