Famous Bollywood actress and filmmaker Nandita Das said, “The more women speak up, the more it will give confidence to others who have been abused and will also serve as a deterrent to those who have felt they can get away with it. For me, #TimesUp is a better movement as it doesn’t solely put the onus on the victims and instead invokes a sense of shared responsibility in all of us – both men and women. “As an afterthought, maybe ‘better’ is not the right word. For me, #TimesUp is a movement that resonates more than the others because it has a sense of shared responsibility.”
Beside the Nandita Das, many other actress in Bollywood come up strongly against the sexual harassments. Such actress are included Pooja Bhatt, Neena Gupta, well other male actors and producers are also supporting #metoo moment or movement.
