The #MeToo movement has been initiated in our country and women are feeling encouraged to come forward and share their ordeals. Tanushree Dutta was the one who broke the ice by giving a detailed account on the sexual harassment she faced from Nana Patekar during the shoot of Horn Ok Pleassss. Post that, many have come up with their traumatic tales and are also getting support from some parts of the industry. So far, Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor, Twinkle Khanna, Aditi Rao Hydari and Taapsee Pannu have voiced their opinions on the issue and now director Imtiaz Ali's daughter, Ida Ali, who is in her teens, has commented on the same. Besides that, she also mentioned how the perspective towards women in the film industry is changing gradually.
During an exclusive interaction with BollywoodLife, Ida chose to comment on the #MeToo movement and said, "I think women always had stories to share." Further, the teenager also shed light on the changing perspective towards women in Bollywood saying, "Women are getting to share their perspectives now as the audiences are opening up to the idea of seeing female directors in the industry. It is happening because of the change in public's perspective."
Now this change is something which we have been waiting to see in B-town for a long time now. What is your take on the ongoing movement which has gained momentum finally? Tweet to us your thoughts @bollywood_life and let us know!
