Last year, the #MeToo campaign took the world by a storm. Hollywood, Bollywood and even Pakistan were shocked to its roots with cases of #MeToo erupting left, right and center. Harvey Weinstein, Nana Patekar, Sajid Khan, and even Alok Nath are only a few of the many celebrities who were named when women victims came out with their accusations.

While we saw Meesha Shafi taking center stage with the #MeToo campaign in Pakistan, accusing fellow singer Ali Zafar with sexual harassment, there wasn’t much noise about the campaign in the country. However, now, actress, Ayesha Omar, has come forward with her experience of having being harassed in the industry opening up about the incident talking with Ahsan Khan at Bol Nights with Ahsan.

“This movement is extremely important because it takes a lot for the people who’ve been victims to open up about their experiences. There are so many men and women in our own industry who have been through it,” said Ayesha, talking about the importance of the movement at the show.

The Bulbulay famed actor went onto state that the movement is brave because of its people. “It is extremely commendable of those who come out with their experiences, making MeToo an extremely brave movement.”

The starlet then ended up revealing that she has also been harassed and she is not brave enough to open up about it yet, but someday she might.

Ayesha Omar also talked about how the movement had been exploited but yet was important enough to make a difference. She then opened up about her own experience of having been harassed in the industry.

“I have been through harassment in my career and life, so I understand how it feels. I don’t have the courage to talk about it yet, maybe someday I will. But I can totally relate with everyone who has been through it.”

“There is no particular time for one to open up about it, it can take one 20 years, another only one, while for some it takes two minutes. People can come out whenever,” stated Ayesha, hinting at opening up was important regardless of the time it took the victim to gather courage and speak up.
