From Sonam Kapoor to Kangana Ranaut- everybody from Bollywood is finally raising their voice against casting couch and sexual harassment that has been prevailing in Bollywood since a very long time. Tanushree Dutta definitely deserves credit for starting the #metoo movement in India. And now, Sushmita Sen too has voiced her opinion on the ongoing scenario and has a legit point to make about it. In an interview with The Quint, Sushmita explained how she thinks that the mindsets of people need to change and only then it will lead to the greater good. Unless that happens, everything else will be futile. After Kangana Ranaut, Another Actress Outs Vikas Bahl’s Creepy Behaviour; Says “He Forcibly Tried to Kiss Me”.

""I was reading an interview of Tanushree Dutta this morning and she is right that it isn’t about the coming of a #MeToo campaign. By all means, it will come and it will go. It is far deeper. It’s a mindset. To change that, you’re looking at an entirely new generation being raised and being educated to believe in their rights and responsibilities. So, I don’t think a campaign will do it. We’re not ready for that yet." said Sushmita at the Outlook Speak Out 2018 event.

She was also asked about Amitabh Bachchan, who has chosen to keep mum on such an important issue. To which the actress said, "I don’t like to speak about someone else because everybody has their own reasons for it. But as far as I am concerned, I think it’s time we stop treating everything as a problem of a sector, it is a basic human right. To live a dignified life and that concerns everyone. It isn’t just about film industry because you are talking about an actor, it isn’t about the person from the media industry because its only related to media. Women exist in all sectors today and thank god for that. Their safety and their integrity is very much everyone’s responsibility."

Well, she does have an absolutely right point to make here. How many of y'all agree with her on this? Tell us in the comments below.
