Megastar Rajinikanth finally opens up on Sabarimala row and #MeToo movement
The entire country is currently dealing with the #MeToo movement. The effects of the movement have shaken the entire country, especially Bollywood. With every passing day, more celebrated names have been making it to the list of alleged offenders. Not just women, even men are coming forward with their #MeToo stories. The movement is gaining momentum in the South film industry as well.
There’s one more issue being discussed throughout the country and that is the Supreme Court’s verdict on women’s entry in the Sabarimala Temple. There is a state of tension in Kerala right now with devotees not allowing women to enter the temple despite SC’s verdict.
Finally, we have megastar Rajinikanth expressing his views on these two issues. Commenting on Sabarimala row and #MeToo movement, the actor told CNN News, “I welcome Sabarimala verdict but tradition must be followed and respected.
#Metoo movement is a good move but women should not misuse it: @rajinikanth | #SabarimalaForAll #MeTooIndia”
