Better late than never. Over the past one year, we have only seen celebs vaguely talking about the #MeToo movement in Hollywood. Most of them talked about how the movement is not possible in the Indian scenario. But now the movement is finally here, big names are falling like a house of cards. More and more celebs are chiming in, in whatever capacity they can to call out the harassment prevalent in Bollywood. Add to the list - Aditi Rao Hydari. #MeToo in Bollywood: List of All Celebs Accused of Sexual Harassment So Far.
The Padmaavat actress very smartly called out the hypocrisy of many on her social media. She tweeted, "Slow clap for the dizzying heights of hypocrisy... People who are clearly guilty of major harassment giving gyaan on the #MeTooIndia movement...[sic]" Ouch. Some people are going to be so hurt. But well done, Aditi. We need more people to call out the hypocrisy like this. Men should be scared, very scared.
