New Delhi: Amid a surge of sexual harassment allegations against prominent Bollywood personalities that is being described as India’s #MeToo movement, television actor Shilpa Shinde has said that there is no such thing as rape in the entertainment industry, and everything is ‘a total give and take policy’.

Speaking to Times Now, the former Bigg Boss winner said, “It’s rubbish. You have to take a call that time only, it’s simple. You should speak about that matter that time only. Even I got a lesson. Jab hota hai, tabhi bolo - baad mei bolne ka koi faayeda nahi (there’s no point complaining later), it’s useless. Baad mei aap voice raise karte ho, usko koi nahi sunega (if you raise your voice later, no one will listen to you), just controversy hogi - nothing else. You have to take a call that time only when it happens and obviously, you need power.”
