Tanushree Dutta, Flora Saini, Vinta Nanda – female film personalities are coming out in the open to talk about the sexual harassment they have faced in the film industry.
While some are applauding their effort for mustering the courage to come up with their #MeToo stories, others are busy trolling the alleged victims calling the gesture a mere publicity stunt.
Television heartthrob Karan Wahi has come in support of such victims. In an exclusive interview with Dainik Bhaskar at the launch of his webshow Bar Code on Hungama Play, the actor said, “I am glad that the #MeToo movement has actually begun here. I just want to urge people that if someone is coming out and talking about their incidents then you don’t need to troll them. It’s a humble request, stop trolling that they are doing this for publicity. Don’t demean the person. Let the judiciary take the call.”
He also asked newbies (amateur actors, strugglers) to be careful while trying their luck in showbiz and not fall for random people who demand favours under the statements – “Main tumhe star banadunga”.
