Bollywood also, and not just Hollywood has arguably a lost list of UNREPORTED SEXUAL ABUSE, HARASSMENT AND SCANDALS. Once Kerala actress flew outstation to meet a film director in his hotel room at 9:00 pm. Being much more of a male dominated industry, sexual harassment is quite likely.
In fact leading and long-time producer Mahesh Bhatt indirectly admitted to such harassment’s existence when he was quoted to have said, “We cannot keep moral cops outside every film office to see that no girl is being exploited“. So is he saying that – such harassment are cases so common that it would be difficult to police – whether by moral policing or real policing?
Sadly very few cases of sexual harassment are even reported – in Bollywood or elsewhere.

Deepika Padukone is the lead actress in “XXX: The Return Of Xander Cage”. She is practicing her stunts and the actions. But one thing she is keeping is her accent. Why? because Deepika says, “I wanted to play an Indian girl in the movie… That’s one of the things that drew me to the part. My roots are Indian in xXx3 and there is no reason why I should speak with an American accent”. So that is really admirable, cannot think of too many actors who would say that.
