Freida Pinto Opens Up About #MeToo, Calls Out Indian Journalists And Blames Bollywood Culture

Published on 15 September, 2018 at 5:38 pm By

Almost a year back, the ‘Me Too’ movement created waves not only in Hollywood but in different parts of the world when women started sharing their own stories of sexual assault online. Apart from the downfall of Harvey Weinstein, many other actors, producers and media moguls faced allegations. Many were overthrown from their powerful seats too. This was the first time when women spoke up in masses and on various world stages including the Oscars. Now, actress Freida Pinto shared her view on the same.

Freida explained how people in Hollywood have shown their acceptance towards the victims of assault. She discussed many important factors related to the ‘MeToo’ movement.

 

 

In a recent interview given to a publication, Freida Pinto clearly put forth what ‘Me Too’ means to her.

 

 

Freida opened up her heart to say:

“I refuse to work with someone that I know is a repeat offender. I wish I could do the same here (in India). The whole MeToo movement in the west was possible because there was a lot of support, and a lot of research went into it.”



 

 

She further contended about the scenario in India and explained how things are still different in Bollywood.

 

 

She stated:

“We all know who the people are in India. It is the same way everyone knew it was Harvey Weinstein in Hollywood, but someone had the courage, and in this case Ronan Farrow (journalist with The New Yorker) to get deep into his research and get support for these women and support them when that story would come out. You tell me one journalist in India who would do that and put his career on the line”
