Kangana Ranaut on #MeToo: People have become absolutely cautious of their behaviour
The #MeToo movement in India began in October last year. A lot of names from the film industry have been called out for their sexual misconduct. In an interview, Kangana Ranaut shares her views on the movement.
Kangana Ranaut is currently busy with the promotions of her upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The actress plays the role of Rani Laxmibai in the film. Kangana has not only acted in it but also directed the film when filmmaker Krish walked out of the project to focus on his other movie. The trailer showed us Kangana being fierce as Rani Laxmibai, her fight against the Britishers and a lot of action and emotions.
The actress has been giving a lot of interviews where she has been talking about Karni Sena's protest and Me Too movement. In an interview with Indian Express, the Queen actress was asked about her views on the Me Too movement in India and the names that are being called out. Kangana said that there are many changes to be made in the film industry. But it is commendable that some of the names of these sexual abusers are out and criminal proceedings are going against them.
She added, "But the good thing is that in the light of all of this people have become absolutely cautious of their behaviour, their conduct, and obviously a person will think 10 times before humiliating anyone and violating their human rights."
Recently, director Rajkumar Hirani was called out by the assistant director of his 2018 film Sanju. The female alleged that Hirani sexually harassed her for 6 months. She had sent a detailed email of the whole incidents to Rajkumar Hirani's friend Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
Coming to Manikarnika, the film also stars Ankita Lokhande and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub. It will hit the screens on January 25, 2019.
