If women don’t speak now, they’ll be suppressed forever – Parineeti
ACTRESS Parineeti Chopra wants more women to speak out about their #MeToo experiences now that Tanushree Dutta has let the cat out of the bag.
Parineeti spoke at the launch of Proper Patola, a song from her forthcoming film, Namaste England, along with her co-actor, Arjun Kapoor, and director,Vipul Amrutlal Shah.
Asked whether she feels that Tanushree’s outburst is a start of the #MeToo movement in India, Parineeti said: “Honestly, I really hope that it’s not a start of #MeToo movement because it will mean that there are a lot more stories like this, and I really hope this is first and last story, if it is true.
“Having said that, if there are any victims, especially women in the industry, then I want every woman to come out in the open and speak, because if they don’t speak now, they will forever be suppressed.”
Arjun said: “I have two sisters who work in the industry, so as a human being who has sisters, I would want all women to feel safe.
“It happens everywhere, and it’s a reality, and now a woman has come forward to speak the truth.
“If she is speaking the truth, then definitely she will win.”
“The problem in our country is that we start heated debates after a revelation, and because of that, people fear speaking the truth.” | IANS
