Hang on tight. This one might be tough to follow but it is very important. Kangana Ranjut's sister Rangoli Chandel has lashed out at Ajay Devgn. The reason is that his upcoming movie, De De Pyaar De, stars Alok Nath in an important role. Alok has been accused of rape in India's #MeToo movement, by a female director-writer. Rangoli's rage was triggered by Tanushree Dutta, who wrote an open letter to Ajay calling out him out. Tanushree is the actress whose vocality kickstarted the movement in India. Resharing Tanushree's open letter, published by Pinkvilla, Rangoli wrote, "It is because of these men our country is a black spot on world map as far as crimes against women are concerned,shame on you bollywood for mocking #MeToo, (sic)"
In a series of tweets, Rangoli spits fire at Bollywood men. "These men are so intoxicated with power and money, they are teasing the movement by supporting fellow harassers and slyly mocking the victims, also shamelessly defending their actions with lame excuses and all those who are enjoying the sweetness of silence just because it is happening to somebody else’s daughter shall know the world is round and everything comes around, (sic)"
Let us remind you Kangana and Ajay have worked together in multiple movies and rumours of their affair were fodder for gossip mongers. Kangana Ranaut is Bonafide A++ List Actress: Tanushree Dutta.
When the #MeToo movement was at its peak in India, Ajay had tweeted out that, "My company and I believe in providing women with utmost respect and safety. If anyone has wronged even a single woman, neither ADF nor I will stand for it,”
Later, he told PTI, “I can’t be judgmental completely till somebody proves someone guilty or not.”
The actor also has given a clarification on Alok's involvement in the De De Pyaar De. He had said, "This is not the right place to talk about it. And jinki aap baat kar rahe hai woh film uske pehle complete hui (the film was completed before the allegations surfaced against the concerned person).”
De De Pyaar De has been produced by Luv Ranjan, who also was accused of sexual misbehaviour. He denied all claims and allegations against him in a statement.
All in all, looks like the women are still standing in solidarity with each other. Many of them. The #MeToo movement might have trickled down but the smallest of streams have carved largest of mountains.
