The #MeToo movement has shaken up the entire Bollywood industry. Big names like Sajid Khan, Alok Nath, Nana Patekar, Rajat Kapoor and Subhash Ghai have been called out for their alleged behaviour. The movement has also received a lot of support from the industry and actors like Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Akshay Kumar have decided not to work with those accused of such behaviour.

Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan recently opened up on the #MeToo movement and shared his story too.  In an interview with PTI, he said, “I have also been harassed in my career, not sexually, but I have been harassed 25 years ago and I am still angry about it. Most people don’t understand other people. It is very difficult to understand other people’s pain. I don’t want to talk about it because I am not important today. Even when I think about what happened to me I still get angry. Today, we have to look after women.” Saif also said that if anybody called his daughter to Madh Island, he would punch that guy.

We’re extremely gutted by these stories and hope that the #MeToo movement leads to a change in the mindset of the people who commit such ghastly acts. It was high time that the women (and men) who have been harassed spoke up so that requisite punishment could me meted out to the harassers.

Saif is currently gearing up for the release of ‘Baazaar’ which is a stock-market themed thriller. The movie also stars Radhika Apte and Chitrangada Singh in lead roles.
