  • MeToo: Comedian Aditi Mittal accused of forcibly kissing woman

Surka accused Mittal of violating her choice and boundaries.

She wrote that the incident took place when she was hosting a comedy show at Andheri Base, in the presence of an audience of 100 and many comedians.

Stand-up comedian Kaneez Surka on Wednesday accused Aditi Mittal of sexual harassment, claiming her fellow stand-up comedian "forcibly kissed" her on the mouth two years ago at a comedy show.

Comedian Aditi Mittal, who had earlier condemned former AIB's comedian Utsav Chakraborty for his obscene behaviour with minor girls, has now found herself in boiling waters. "It left me humiliated, shocked and completely stripped of choice", she wrote in her post. In a post on Twitter, Kaneez shared how Aditi kissed her while she was on the stage, without asking for her permission.

She also added that how seeing her name all over the social media while supporting a campaign that brings out the courage in the victims of sexual misconduct triggered her immensely.

Surka said she once again spoke to Mittal on Tuesday via a mutual friend to come out with a public apology and let her keep her identity secret. Despite having acknowledged it earlier, she denied kissing me on the mouth, gaslighted me and asked to cross check. "Her actions yesterday have hurt me further and burdened me with the task of having to do this but I don't want to be silent anymore", she added.

In her ordeal, Kaneez has also requested men not to use her account to suit their agendas.

In the post, Kaneez also mentioned how she tried to ask for an apology from her yesterday as well, since the #metoo movement is slowly grasping its hold in Bollywood and in India, on the whole, Aditi refused to acknowledge what had happened. "Please respect this", she concluded. "This is not retribution but for personal closure, " she signed off.
