India and especially Bollywood is a place where the personal space of a person is taken for granted. Yes, we’re a nation that loves showing affection in the form of hugging, holding hands and even kissing on the cheeks and forehead. But what we are ignorant about is consent and to some level even vigilance. Who is watching us and whether the person we are showering affection on wants that kind of physical affection or not are questions which we lack to acknowledge or even understand.

Bollywood is no stranger to that and especially actresses who fall victim to inappropriate touching by co-actors on several occasions. Here are 11 such times which came under the public and media radar.

1. Zakir Khan and Co-actor

This involved the leading production house Balaji Telefilms. In 2014, an actress on the show ‘Pavitra Bandhan’ accused her co-actor Zakir Khan of touching her inappropriately during the shooting of a kidnapping scene.
