Arjun Rampal: Don’t want my daughters to face #MeToo
Tanushree Dutta took the entire nation by storm in October last year by starting the #MeToo movement. She accused Nana Patekar and others of harassing her on the sets of ‘Horn Ok Pleassss!’ in the year 2008. After her revelation, many Bollywood bigwigs including Subhash Ghai, singer Kailash Kher, Sajid Khan, Alok Nath, Rajkumar Hirani and others were in the alleged offenders’ list. The #MeToo movement earned extensive support from the insiders of the industry. And now, actor Arjun Rampal has opened up on the movement and said that he is happy as it happened in India.
In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble, the actor said, “I do hope that there is a change and it has been a good movement, the #metoo movement. It was a very required movement to take place as you know because I have two daughters and they are inclined towards coming into acting. I do not want them to have those experiences. Every woman is somebody’s daughter, mother and sister and you know you don’t want that for any of them. I hope that this movement – #metoo movement – has given a big shock and a strong message has been sent to people who have gotten away with things which are not acceptable.”
On the work front, Rampal will be soon seen depicting the role of a pilot in his digital debut titled ‘The Final Call’. The film is an adaptation of renowned author Priya Kumar’s book ‘I Will Go With You’, and is slated to release on Zee5 on February 22.
