Bollywood director and actor Farhan Akhtar is one of the few individuals in the industry, who believes in equal rights and gender justice. The actor is always on the forefront of various issues and practices what he preaches.

Farhan recently opened up about his cousin Sajid Khan‘s alleged involvement in the #MeToo (sexual harassment) scandal. The ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ director said he still feels guilty and disgraceful about Sajid’s behaviour.

Farhan Akhtar was speaking at ‘We The Women’ summit and according to Hindustan Times, this is what the actor said,  “Every time something like this has happened in the public domain, I’ve been very vocal with my opinion. When it came to someone within my family, I felt silence on that front would be very, very hypocritical,”

“So pretty much on the first day, when three women came out and spoke, I felt it was important for me to speak out. Sajid, being my brother, I need to now work with him, try to figure out how he can see this thing through and how it is that he can make the women who have been affected by his actions, somehow feel better,” he added.

The ‘Rock On’ actor says he believes in victim’s stories regarding his cousin’s involvement and name calling should be stopped. Sajid Khan’s name in the #MeToo scandal ruffled quite a few feathers and as a result, he was sacked as a director from ‘Housefull 4′.

We need more male actors like Farhan Akhtar to take a stand and help restore balance in the industry. Farhan also has an NGO named “MARD” (Men against rape and discrimination).
