It seems #MeToo movement is not going to stop anytime soon in the Bollywood industry. Every other day there are new names coming out and final women are sharing their horrific experience of sexual harassment and physical abuse without any hesitation. Nana Patekar, Utsav Chakraborty, Tanmay Bhatt, Gursimran Khamba, Alok Nath, Rajat Kapoor and now sacred games writer Varun Grover have been accused of sexual harassment. Famous Bollywood celebs like Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar, Twinkle Khanna, Priyanka Chopra have shown their support to the movement.
Now actress and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have also opened up about the #MeToo movement and came forward to speak about it. She said that it is gaining momentum and it is a positive sign.
"I think it is a good sign how the #MeToo movement is gaining momentum. However, I would refrain to comment on any specific case as that would be irresponsible on our part. At least some of these cases would become sub judice soon. So, I don't think it would be proper to talk about any particular incident," Aishwarya told the media on Tuesday. Aishwarya spoke about the matter while she attended the launch of the new makeup line festival collection named "L'Oreal Paris X Sabyasachi Calcutta".
The actress feels that this movement should continue so that women across the country can open up about their experiences and also social media also helps them to find an audience to share their story. She further added, "I have spoken and will continue to when it comes to speaking for women...ever since I have got the microphone in my hand, right from the platform of Miss World (pageant).
"Since the world is becoming a smaller space where social media is bringing people closer and anyone from any part of the world can share their story and find interested people to listen to them," said Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
