Such a shame that people in the position of power are giving out statements where they speak out anything they should not. It is not a privilege for the women who have shared their harrowing experiences openly just thinking that in future, this kind of things doesn’t happen anymore.
Many B-town actresses have expressed their views on the issue and Preity Zinta is the recent one who spoke.
The #MeToo movement exploded in Bollywood, media, politics and corporate sector after actress Tanushree Dutta renewed a decade-old complaint of harassment against Nana Patekar two weeks ago. Filmmaker Vikas Bahl, singer Kailash Kher, actors Rajat Kapoor and Alok Nath, and journalist-turned-politician M.J. Akbar are among those named as alleged predators.
Zinta talked about Me Too Movement which stormed out last month and said, "I think it's important that this whole Me Too Movement has started, but it is also important that women use it for the right thing because there are men and women who would use the position of their power for their advantage. There are small percentage of women that are using it, and they’re diluting the movement but there are also women who have gone through all these and we have heard so many stories in the industry."
According a leading entertainment portal, the actress was asked if she has ever experienced any kind of bad behaviour in the industry. To that, she replied, "No, I haven’t, I wish I had,” she laughed. “People treat you the way you want to be treated”.
This is not a statement we wanted to hear from an actress when such a huge movement is taking place for the betterment of the society.
