The creeping fingers of Harvey Weinstein shook Hollywood when Actress after actress bravely told their casting couch story. Overnight he lost his reputation and his company, and he wasn’t the only one. Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Dustin Hoffman and many others faced the consequences of their actions too. Hollywood was on a mission to purge itself from sexual predators.
All the while, Bollywood was deathly silent. It’s obvious that actors in Indian media have a lot to reveal, but instead of facing it head on they tip-toed around the subject, choosing not to name these “sleazy gentlemen” and “influential Bollywood directors”. So what’s stopping India from having its own TimesUp movement or the MeToo Movement?
