Since the premiere of her movie The Kerala Story, Adah Sharma have been in the headlines frequently. One of the year’s highest-grossing Hindi films is now this one. Adah, who has served in the Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam cinema industries, recently spoke out about experiencing gender harassment while filming.
The performer claimed that over her career in the film industry, she has “met the good, unacceptable and ugly.” Adah Sharma recalled how women are summoned on set first and then instructed to wait for fellow male counterparts, saying she had “felt inequality on the grounds of gender.”
Men are instructed to arrive on set after women.
“I’ve worked with North and South Americans who were both really fantastic and not so amazing. I now understand who it is. Regardless of the language acquisition, everything goes extremely well if the director is kind. Adah stated in an interview that “it’s simply not a nice thing” if the director is unpleasant and unkind.
Adah most recently appeared as the lead actress in The Kerala Story alongside Yogita Bihani, Sonia Balani, and Siddhi Idnani. At the national box office, the film has already made over 200 crore.
The Sudipto Sen-directed film has made headlines for its alleged depiction of Keralan women being coerced into conversion and enlisted by the terrorist organisation ISIS. On May 8, the West Bengali administration outlawed the movie after sensing tensions amongst several factions. Tamil Nadu theatres have similarly made the decision to stop showing it, claiming the law-and-order situation as well as a low attendance rate
