Much to our delight, we have seen a lot of female celebrities open up about their heinous encounters of sexual harassment with the help of the #MeToo campaign in Hollywood. While the movement, which was spearheaded by a handful of veteran stars from the West, urged many female Hollywood celebrities to open up the episodes of harassment of their own, hardly anyone has been vocal about the same in Bollywood.
Why, do you think so? Well, guess Kaala star Huma Qureshi has an answer for that. In a recent interview, while speaking about the same, she said, “It’s not going to happen (in Bollywood) and the reason is, it worked in Hollywood because a lot of senior and respected actresses spoke about it. That’s what really gives the #MeToo movement a lot of momentum. I really hope and pray it happens in India. But I feel we should not wait for this campaign to happen just in the film industry, it should happen in all walks of life.”
