#MeToo movement: Former ‘Bigg Boss’ contestant Diandra Soares slams Amitabh Bachchan and Karan Johar
The ongoing #MeToo movement has given courage to all the women to come up with their stories of sexual harassment. Women of different sectors have levelled sexual harassment charges against many big names of the industry. From Alok Nath, Subhash Ghai, Anu Malik to Sajid Khan, names of many Bollywood celebs are included in the list of sexual predators. Former Bigg Boss Diandra Soares contestant also shared her #MeToo story recently accusing Suhel Seth of harassing her.
In her latest interview with Zoom, Diandra slammed Amitabh Bachchan and Karan Johar. She questioned why Amitabh Bachchan is ‘silent’ and also asked Karan Johar if he knew about ‘girl power’. Slamming Mr. Bachchan, she said, “Someone like Amitabh Bachchan who has done a film like ‘Pink’ – powerhouse performance, no means no, and they went all over the town promoting that like it is the in thing to do. I want to know and I want to ask him, and I’ll do it point blank. I know him, and I have met him, I know his daughter in law very well, his kids are brought up very well, he has a granddaughter, he has a lot of women in the family, and I want to know why the silence and your statement? Really? That’s the statement you gave out.”
Criticising Karan Johar’s use of ‘girl power’ term on the chat ‘Koffee With Karan 6’, Diandra questioned, “You opened your show saying girl power and I have got two actresses to open the show, should we give you an award for that? Do you want a little crown or a sachet? Because it is not such a big deal, you said the words girl power, do you even understand the meaning of the word girl power?”
She also condemned the comment by Jackie Shroff on the movement. She said that she had lost all her respect for him. “He had blinders on throughout his interview and proved me right. Not only that, he goes on to say how people are washing their dirty laundry in public. Dude, I want to ask about your wife, where is her dirty laundry being washed? Wasn’t that public?,” said Diandra.
