The Me Too Movement is gaining momentum in India and many women from different paths of life are coming out and sharing their horrifying stories. Many celebrities from the film industry have been accused of sexual harassment and the recent is Malayalam actor Alencier Ley Lopez. In the latest Facebook post of India Protests, an anonymous actress revealed that Alencier had molested her multiple times and shared about each incident.
The long post reads, “The first incident happened on a lunch table. There was 3 of us. Myself, him and a co-actor. He described how a star, bigger than him, behaves to women around him as he kept ogling at my breasts. I got upset. But he advised me to be more social and asked me to see things more lightly. I didn’t respond to it. But I could feel it wasn’t safe to be around him.”
She further shared another story when the actor walked into his room during a shoot. The post reads, “Third was when I was on my menstrual cycle and I was feeling tired and with the consent of the Director, took a break and when to my room. So I was resting in my room and heard this knock. I looked through the door hole and found Alencier there. Getting tensed, i called up the Director and asked for help. He said he will send some one. Alencier was repeatedly knocking and kicking on the door, that finally I opened the door, thinking I will jump out of the room.
I kept the call active so the Director could listen to any dialogues, whatsoever may happen. But as I opened, he pushed himself inside the room and locked it. He was drunk. I was standing there tensed and shocked and what not. He sat on my bed and repeated his theories on how strong theater artists are supposed to be. He got and walked close to me as I was trying to.find my voice to send him out. That’s when the doorbell rang.”
