“I remember forming these words on my lips – ‘Sir. This is wrong. Because of this power structure. You being the absolute power and me being a mere assistant, a nobody – I will never be able to express myself to you’. My mind, body and heart were grossly violated that night and for the next 6 months,” the woman’s email read, which she had sent to Chopra and his wife Anupama, scriptwriter Abhijat Joshi and Chopra’s sister Shelly.
The women further states why she was silent at the time of the icninde, stating, “I had no choice but to be polite to him. It was unbearable but the reason I endured it all, until I couldn’t, was because I didn’t want my job to be taken away from me, and work to be questioned. Ever. I was worried that if I left midway, it would be impossible to find another job in this industry if he were to speak badly about my work because if Hirani said I wasn’t good, everybody would listen. My future would be in jeopardy”.
