Love it or Hate it; but you cannot ignore the #MeToo movement. This highly controversial but much-needed movement has its fair share of evangelists and detractors.
The bomb can explode anytime on the entire film industry. Also, it could percolate to the other sectors as well.
The #MeToo victims are emerging from the past and sharing their stories. Their stories are bringing all the skeletons out of the closet.
While the celebrity version of the #MeToo stories is sad, it’s very amusing at the same time.
The extremities of cacophony and stark silence caught my attention and interest. And I couldn’t help penning down this roast.
Anurag Kashyap is calling out sex offenders? Oh yeah! It’s like pot calling the kettle black. Next what, Shakti Kapoor calls out Gulshan Grover?
Sajid Khan turns out to be not-so-slim-shady after all. I am not surprised because his jokes and movies have always been sexist.
Aamir Perfectionist Khan stays true to his Satyamev Jayathe image by showing his solidarity for the #MeToo movement.
Akshay Patriotic Kumar is exempted from his #MeToo duties because he’s busy doing toilet and sanitary napkin promotions. Plus his wife’s twinkly image works to his advantage.
Maybe Nana Patekar has hope. His charitable acts may just save his skin. If Salman’s Being Human image can maaf saath khoon, why not!
Also, where’s Shahrukh’s head currently buried?
Karan Nepotist Johar is busy perfecting his pout and prepping his peepers for his upcoming steaming show.
Amitabh (Nah!)Bol Bachchan is, of course, above all such movements. Kyunki Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, na mumkin hain!
And trust Kangana Opportunist Ranaut for yelling from every rooftop possible.
Also, Kareena Non-Feminist Khan has preferred to stay mum because she is all for gender equality but not faaaminism. #NotHer for sure.
Finally, I’m praying Saroj Khan doesn’t pop out of nowhere and make another insane comment on how ‘yeh sab toh chalta rahata hain’ (All this is pretty normal in the industry) and break into a jig to her cringe-worthy ‘Choli Ke Peeche’ song.
Bollywood is a mental asylum.
