I support the women who come out with their MeToo stories. I can't stay silent anymore: Imran Khan

Posted In: News Date:Oct 10th, 2018

Bollywood's #MeToo movement has taken off and so far four have been accused of sexual harassment and assault; Nana Patekar, Vikas Bahl, Rajat Kapoor and Alok Nath.

Unfortunately, the film industry knew of their actions but chose to remain silent and with it every victim was silenced. In an interview with Indian Express, actor Imran Khan said that three women approached him about Bahl's doings but he was told to stay shut about the matter.

“I think it was long, long, long overdue. There have been times when I wanted to speak out. I was advised to stay quiet because they said people will assume I am trying to grab publicity. They (people) will say I am trying to become relevant and come in the news since my films have not worked well. Time and again, people around me will tell me to not speak up,” he said.
