Saif Ali Khan minced no words when he chose to comment on the ongoing #MeToo movement in the country. The actor whose family consists mostly of women has said that one cannot treat women like this. And recently, in a conversation, with Times Of India, Saif once again poured out his feelings and said that it is awful to take advantage of the young girls who come looking for work with no one to protect them. Not only that, but the actor also spoke as to how he would react if someone tried to misbehave with his daughter, Sara, who is making her Bollywood debut with Rohit Shetty's Simmba.
He said, "If someone asks my daughter to come to see him at Madh Island, I will go with her and punch that man in the face. If she tells me this guy said this to me, he will then be fighting me in the court. I am sorry, but that's my reaction to it. He wouldn't dare to it again. Every girl should have that kind of security."
A few days back when multiple women had accused filmmaker, Sajid Khan, of sexual misconduct, the actor, who has worked with him in Humshakals, made a strong point telling Indian Express, "I don’t even want to call them my colleagues. I don’t think of these guys as my colleagues, I would be very shocked and surprised if a friend of mine was named in this. I think it is disgusting, and I have never liked any kind of bullying, and I know this is something that people do. And they can’t do it." The actor also spoke about how this movement would make sexual predators think twice before harming someone. He said, "By this (the #MeToo movement), and changing your mindset, and your attitude I suppose. Fortunately and unfortunately the media, and this is one of the good things about social media, that you shame people into behaving. Now they’ll think ten times before disrespecting somebody."
