India has finally reached a point where women are now openly coming out with complaints of Sexual harassment at their workplaces. Recent days saw a large number of women who came out with complaints of sexual molestation against Bollywood’s big stars. Some of the stars that have been accused include Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, Kailash Kher, Nana Patekar, Rajat Kapoor and more.

 

After all this, the women who have come out have received immense support from Bollywood stars like Aamir Khan, Parineeti Chopra, Sonam K Ahuja, Farhan Akhtar and more. However, a lot of senior actors also have been against the wave of Me Too Movement in India. In his recent interview, Veteran actor of Sholay fame, Asrani commented on the Me Too Movement and called it a publicity stunt. He said, “I support women, everyone should, but all this is mostly for publicity, part of film promotions and nothing else. Mere accusations mean nothing, don't take this seriously.”

 

 

Amidst so much that is being said and done against the perpetrators who have been named by women from the industry, this comment by Asrani on the Me Too Movement is surely going to cause a stir. The whole movement began post Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment back in 2008 on the sets of Horn Ok Please. Post that Vinta Nanda complaint about Alok Nath and accused him of rape and sexual misconduct. Even actress Sandhya Mridul accused Alok Nath of the same. Now, the movement is in full swing and more names are also expected to come out.

Grandpa is off his meds again

Some men just refuse to understand what it is to be sexually harassed... they think it’s ok and it’s two way...

Tanushree has no movie coming up. Neither do Vinta Nanda and Navneet Nishan and Sandhya Mridul. What a sad, sad man.

Proves what kind of human he is. He too must have done this at some point in his career.

What has he been eating!? Cow dung!

Cow dung has more sanctity than his mindset. LOL !

sick mind !

i am not surprised...
Indian male mentality

shut up old man

This is one of the main reasons why India is the number one country that is unsafe for women! CLAP! CLAP!!

Asrani Is worried about women speaking against him ;)

Hey ram. Jo thodi izzat apko acting se mili hai kyun gawa rahe ho aise bol kar.

It’s because of people like him we will never move forward.

Asrani sir please refrain from making such fleeting and frivolous remarks on such a sensitive issue!
