Preity Zinta faces backlash on her take on the MeToo movement, actor issues clarification!

Seems like the Bollywood actress Preity Zinta has landed herself in the midst of a major controversy. On being asked about her views on the MeToo movement in a recent interview, the actress said, “I think it’s important that this whole #MeToo movement has started but it’s also important that women use it for the right thing because there are men and women that would use their position of power for their advantage. But, I do feel bad when women are using it when it’s not that serious or for personal vendetta or for publicity. There is a very small percentage of women that are using it and they’re diluting the movement but then there are also women who’ve gone through all of this and we being in the industry have heard so many stories.”

“So if you want to acknowledge that there’s a problem, you have to first at least admit that there is and then you solve the problem. But, this ‘Me Too’ movement if it’s this much in the film industry, it’s that much in every other industry. At least we have a spotlight here in this industry and people listen to you and the media is there but if you’re telling me it’s not in other industries and not in the business world and not in politics, that’s rubbish.”

On being asked if she has faced any such experience, the actress made an insensitive remark by saying, “No, I haven’t, I wish I had. (Laughs) At least, then, I would have had an answer to tell you. No and that’s what I am saying that this is very relevant question because people treat you the way you want to be treated.”

The actress also made some frivolous statement and said,”Aaj Ki Sweetu, Kal ki MeToo ho sakti hai.’ So don’t hang out with any ‘Sweetu’ “

The actress is now facing the fury of the Twitteratis. However, she clarified her stance by saying her statement was taken out of context and blown completely out of proportion. She shared a video and an excerpt from an interview  which showed her actual take on the movement. Have a look:-
