Celina Jaitly recently returned to acting after eight years with Ram Kamal Mukherjee’s short film Season’s Greetings. It premiered on ZEE5.

Celina Jaitly has been constantly in news ever since she recently made her acting comeback after a long gap of eight years. The beautiful actress played the female lead in the filmmaker Ram Kamal Mukherjee directed short film Season’s Greetings, which premiered on ZEE5 and received overwhelming response from various corners.

Celina Jaitly, who is back in the limelight after several years, surprised everyone by revealing that she faced harassment not only in Bollywood but also in the fashion industry. Talking to a leading online publication, she said that she was very lucky when she entered the film industry because she was a Feroz Khan girl as she was launched by the actor-filmmaker in his 2003 film Janasheen. He loved her and she loved him. She said that Khan would not let anything come close to her. That was the situation while shooting with him.

Celina Jaitly went on to add that the negative side of this was that she became so comfortable and so protected that she did not think about what she will have to face after she leaves FK Productions and goes out. The actress said that she has been through her share of harassment. It is bothersome but women in India go through a lot of harassment, not just in the film industry.

Celina Jaitly added that her first brush with harassment was when she was just 15-year-old, when she became a model. She shared that it took a while for her to even understand what was happening when she was propositioned.

The actress said that half the time, one does not even know why is he propositioning or is that a proposition. One learns to deal with it. She realised, once she achieved success, she was so used to harassment that she would just take it with a pinch of salt and move on. This becomes one’s attitude after some time.
