As soon as the stories of sexual misconduct against few filmmakers like Vikas Bahl and Subhash Kapoor resurfaced, the Producers Guild of India had held a meeting to discuss the measures that are needed to be taken in order to make the workplace safer for everyone. The meeting was attended by several eminent personalities of B-town. Aamir Khan and his filmmaker wife Kiran Rao too were part of this meeting.

Now within the first week of setting a special committee on sexual harassment, the Producers Guild of India has made it compulsory for all its existing and new members to make sure that they have implemented all the laws surrounding sexual harassment at their workplace. The guild has appointed Sneha Rajani as the head of the new committee that will look after the cases of harassment.

According to an official statement released by the Guild, the newly formed committee has even called for an extraordinary general meeting to amend its by-laws and will enable all Guild members to institute and implement robust processes in their workplaces to ensure the highest standards of safety for employees and crew members.

You can read their entire statement here:

With such swift actions being taken against the alleged offenders, looks its TimesUp for the offenders and the harassers will be put to justice very soon. We hope that these measures taken up by the committee help in curbing the rampant cases of sexual misconduct.
