Radhika Apte on #MeToo movement: It is disappointing that it came and went
The #MeToo movement started in India in 2018 when Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment on the sets of ‘Horn Ok Pleassss’ in 2009. Tanushree can be called as a torchbearer as after she opened up about her ordeal, many women from the industry and outside the industry came forward to share their stories of being sexually assaulted. Names of many bigwigs like Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl, and Anu Malik among others cropped up. It has been a year now the movement has started and many celebs are accused but we can’t see much change as most of the accused are living freely as nothing has been proved.
Radhika Apte also feels that nothing has changed in the #MeToo movement. As reported by PTI, at the Times Network India Economic Conclave when she was asked what were the things she liked or hated about the decade, Radhika said, “Me Too movement came and went. It is disappointing. A lot of things that should’ve changed have not changed. A lot of things have not come out, have not changed. That’s really disappointing.”
The ‘Sacred Games’ actress also said the pay disparity issue hasn’t changed. “There’s no pay parity at all. We don’t need to talk about pay parity like ‘should this A list actress get few more crores than a male A list actor.’ It’s not just that. If an A list actor is getting you that sure shot three crore of money, he should be getting paid more money, talking in broader strokes. But apart from the A-lister, the rest of the cast and crew is also made up of men and women. We don’t have parity there. There’s no excuse to not have parity there. They don’t affect your box office at all.”
