In the wake of #MeToo movement, many victims have come out and narrated their shocking stories. The latest one to join them is Ayushamann Khurrana’s wife Tahira Kashyap.
Recently, Tahira Kashyap took to her Instagram to share her MeToo story.
She wrote, “I found solace after around 20 years when I shared the same with my husband and parents. Often the closest people, especially the relatives in your life (those whom everyone trusts), are the real creeps. I know how it feels to be violated and stifled inside for years altogether and how the memories of it makes one shudder. I was so scared of a physical touch that when I started dating my husband (then boyfriend) I would cry at every step of physical proximity. His patience and love healed me.”
She ends her post by writing, “More power to women to speak, more power to men to enact and more power to truth”.
My #MeToo moment… wish I didn’t have one and neither did anyone. But glad we are speaking about it. Let’s have zero tolerance towards it. And let’s not question how long the victim took to speak. It took me around 20 years. Will it be held against me? pic.twitter.com/hYxUHBVI4v
