Kalki Koechlin spoke to BBC in a video released yesterday about the unspoken issue of sexual harassment in Bollywood.

She begins by explaining why most women don't speak up about their experiences.

And how the targets are usually not the big stars, but newcomers with no clout or power in the industry.

And how these people have to face harassment because they're not famous and don't have the support system that stars do.

She says that it's time for men to recognise the issues that women face...

...and that they need to actually stand with women on this issue.
