Lately, Pakistani singer Meesha Shami disclosed that she was sexually harassed by actor-singer Ali Zafar. By using the #MeToo hashtag, the singer told that she won’t stay silent anymore.
After that, a lot of people are expecting Bollywood celebrities to open up on sexual harassment in the industry.
About the same, when a media source questioned director Anurag Kashyap about the same, he revealed, “Anywhere, a campaign like this (#MeToo) will be successful only when the victim speaks up. Then the people can stand up in support of the victim. If the victim won’t speak up, then no one can speak because the others will be branded as disgruntled people trying to do rumour-mongering. It will be a total failure.”
About media’s obsession with “sexual harassment exists in every field including Bollywood”, the director told, “It exists everywhere. Why are people obsessed with Bollywood?”
“I think everyone needs to take that clue and find that courage to do something about it,” further added Anurag.
