“This person posted an ad on Instagram for a casting call regarding a modelling gig for a big brand. He said I was pretty but he wasn’t looking for someone on a wheelchair for that specific modelling gig but he would keep me in mind for future projects” read the first tweet of Virali Modi.

In the chat screenshots provided by Modi, the accused could be seen saying that he would get ho*ny if she is normal and appreciating her face and lips.

After sharing the screenshots, Modi wrote “First and foremost, my disability doesn’t make me any less desirable. Secondly, he shouldn’t EVER be speaking to anyone in such a way, no matter their gender, physical condition, race, caste, or sexual preference. This is online sexual harassment”

“Just because he’s “influential” doesn’t give him the right to speak to me or anyone in such a way. This is exploitation of his privilege and “influence”. In the age of the #MeToo    movement, you would think people in would have common sense but that’s what’s lacking, common sense” she further said.

Virali also said that she knows that she is jeopardizing her chances to get into the industry by exposing him but she doesn’t care about it as she has witnessed men approaching her similar way in the past.

“My self respect, morals, and dignity are worth more than my need for work. I am an extremely hard working person and the first wheelchair using model in India. I have worked for many prestigious brands as a freelance model” her tweet read.

“Receiving such messages really brings me down because I know that I’m not the first person this man has messaged in the hopes of tricking someone into bed in order to get work. This is the dark truth” She further said.

She also exposed him luring other girls in similar way by sharing the screenshots she received from them. “On his website he’s associating himself with well known directors in the entertainment industry but as it turns out, his website is also fake. Screenshots of the same. RAJIV OBEROI IS A FRAUD AND HAS BEEN HARASSING WOMEN SINCE GOD KNOWS WHEN!” she added and tagged the media portals to expose him.
