With a number of sexual misconduct cases surfacing in entertainment industries around the globe, it was the recent Zaira Wasim incident which had a deep impact on some major Bollywood celebs like Aamir Khan.

“I think sexual harassment is a very sad thing to happen to anyone, irrespective of what your sex is. Sexual harassment is just not on,” Aamir told Hindustan Times.
