Hope #Metoo cam­paign doesn’t fiz­zle out: Mouni

Khaleej Times - City Times - - YOUR DAILY DOSE OF BOLLYWOOD -

MOUNI ROY, WHO is busy shoot­ing for her forth­com­ing film Made in China, is hop­ing that the #Metoo cam­paign which has gath­ered mo­men­tum in the coun­try doesn’t fiz­zle out like other im­por­tant is­sues. Mouni was in­ter­act­ing with the me­dia at the Bom­bay Times Fash­ion Week. Re­act­ing to the cam­paign, Mouni said: “It’s high time that women should speak against ha­rass­ment that they have faced in their lives. If they will not talk about it now then, when they should talk about it?

“I think they should take their mat­ter to court but it will only hap­pen when you will talk about the present sit­u­a­tion be­cause there are some cases which has hap­pened so many years ago that there is no proof or ev­i­dence left to get due jus­tice. I think any one whether it’s a man or a woman who is go­ing through any kind of ha­rass­ment should come out and talk about it be­cause that is very im­por­tant.”

She also hoped that the move­ment doesn’t fiz­zle out in the coun­try. “Not just the film in­dus­try, I gen­uinely feel that lit­tle chil­dren in­clud­ing boys and girls in our neigh­bor­hood or some­times in our fam­i­lies, they go through sim­i­lar kind of ha­rass­ment that they can’t talk about. I just hope and pray that this cam­paign doesn’t fiz­zle out be­cause some­times cer­tain is­sues catch mo­men­tum in our coun­try and un­for­tu­nately af­ter few days, no one even talks or thinks about it.”
