Jami Mehmood revealed on his Twitter account yesterday that he was raped nearly 13 years ago by a giant from the media industry. He emphasized that though the person who raped him was shorter than him, he completely froze during the act. He couldn’t move due to the shock and felt completely disgusted afterwards. The LSA award winning film director opened up in a series of tweets, last night.
Jami’s words mirror the accounts of several women that had been sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein as well as other powerful celebrities in Hollywood.
Jami is one of the most respected filmmakers in the Pakistani film industry, with “Moor” and Shaan Shahid starrer “O21” in his belt. He has been a clear voice in support of the #MeToo movement from the beginning.
