The #MeToo movement is picking up momentum ever since people have come forward to speak up about their experiences of sexual harassment. The movement has caused a wave of revolution in the film industry and workplaces around the nation.


Amidst celebrities calling out names of male sexual offenders, here is a twist in the #MeToo tale.


Comedienne Kaneez Surka took to her social media on Wednesday to share her story about sexual harassment by levying accusations on Aditi Mittal, who forcibly kissed her on her lips during a show in the presence of 100 people 2 years back.
Surka mustered the courage to reach out to Aditi Mittal and demanded an apology from her to unburden her from the task of taking the matter to public.


However, Aditi first apologized, but turned hostile towards her later, which left Surka confused and hurt.


"Two years ago, at a comedy show I was hosting at Andheri Base, in the presence of audience of 100 and many comedians, Aditi Mittal walked on stage and forcefully kissed me on my mouth out of blue and put her tongue in my mouth, while I was still on stage and without my consent,"
Kaneez wrote in a post.


"I have proof but I thought we believe the victim. 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.


On Wednesday evening, Aditi apologized by claiming that she jokingly had kissed her. Here are their individual posts on the issue.
