The #MeToo movement in Bollywood has not just exposed the perpetrators of the industry, but has also instilled a sense of fear amongst men. Recently, veteran actor Dalip Tahil, who is working on Sudhir Mishra's upcoming film, was to shoot a rape sequence for the movie. While the actor agreed to do the scene, he, however, had a prior condition.

According to a report in Navbharat Times, Dalip initially refused to enact the rape scene. However, he later agreed to do the scene after the makers convinced him. But, he demanded a confirmation letter from the actress featuring in the scene stating that she is comfortable shooting the rape scene and is doing so without any pressure.

Apparently, Dalip wasn't satisfied with the written consent and asked for visual proof as well. As per reports, after shooting the scene, he also asked the actress to record her statement on the camera wherein stated that she has performed that scene without any pressure and that she was satisfied with the security measures on the sets.

Ever since Tanushree Dutta made sexual allegations against Nana Patekar, the #MeToo movement has gained steam in Bollywood and exposed many big names like Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl, Anu Malik, Rajat Kapoor, Kailash Kher, Mukesh Chhabra, Subhash Ghai and many others.
