Every industry is mired with some or the other controversy. Bollywood too has been mired with several issues since time immemorial. Harassment at the workplace is one of them. Last year, the much needed #MeToo movement hit the Indian shores and eventually it revealed the ugly side of the show business where power and money call the shots.
The movement led to several renowned names making its way the alleged harassers’ list. Filmmaker Sajid Khan too was named and shamed by several women and that ultimately led to him to walking out of ‘Housefull 4’. He was replaced by Farhad Samji as the director. Kriti Sanon, who is one of the actresses featuring in ‘Housefull 4’, recently opened up about the movement.
Kriti, in an interview to Mumbai Mirror said, “I’m a big feminist and #MeToo is the greatest thing to happen to the film industry in a long time. It’s changed the way people look at things. Now there’s fear that if you do something wrong, you can’t get away with it. I don’t know how much justice the survivors have got because sadly, there’s only so much you can do to prove your point because a lot of harassment is verbal, without witnesses around. Also, many fingers were pointed anonymously. But I’m glad #MeToo happened and shook things up.”
Well, we completely agree with Kriti’s views and hope that things have changed for real in the industry.
On the work front, she will be next seen in ‘Luka Chuppi’ alongside Kartik Aaryan. She also has ‘Panipat’ in her kitty.
