New Delhi: Actress Tanushree Dutta slammed all people connected with Bollywood for allegedly lending their support to #MeToo accused.
And the latest one to be caught in this is Bollywood perfectionist Aamir Khan who had recently joined hands with director Subhash Kapoor for their upcoming flick Mogul, India express reports.
In her statement, Tanushree said, “How come nobody in Bollywood has sleepless nights when a girl who is an upcoming professional becomes a victim of harassment or abuse of some kind and is inadvertently out of the industry and not able to work out of humiliation, trauma and ostracization? How come nobody thinks of the livelihood of those women who have had to let go of promising, flourishing careers due to harassment at the workplace? There seems to be so much compassion for the #MeToo accused floating around but none for the alleged victims it seems.”
Tanushree Dutta has come forward with her past experience with this #MeToo movement in Bollywood last year after she accused Nana Patekar for allegedly harassing her on the sets of Horn OK Pleassss back in 2009.
And soon the rest followed with several women in the industry coming forward to reveal their stories of harassment.
With this wake of the #MeToo movement, director Subhash Kapoor was dropped from Mogul and Aamir khan had back then released a statement saying he no longer wants to be associated with Director Subhash.
But in a recent interview, the actor has revealed that he has had a change of heart and that despite what his move might suggest, he still supports the #MeToo movement.
Aamir said, “Of course I fully support the MeToo movement. And I urge women who have complaints to formally lodge them with their ICC (Internal Complaints Committee), which every organisation must mandatorily have. Just to clarify, the case of Mr Kapoor was not a case of workplace misconduct, hence could not be investigated by an ICC.”
Soon after Aamir made his decision, Tanushree slammed the actor for his change of heart.
“I know this is a very tricky situation and one that many well-meaning people in the industry face today and Aamir Khan could be one of those or perhaps it’s a well-crafted excuse. Only he and his God knows. Being a woman, it’s a task finding your place in the world and then when it’s taken away from you, it’s an uphill ride getting your feet firm again. No compassion for me, Aamir?”
