After Tanushree Dutta’s allegations on Nana Patekar, the #MeToo movement has spread its wings across varied aspects of the Bollywood industry.
Because of the outrage that has been going on in the industry, Cine And TV Artists Association (CINTAA) has decided to take a firm stand on the matter and appointed a new jury for dealing with sexual harassment cases and speaking to survivors.
Raveena Tandon and Taapsee Pannu are on the jury of CINTAA, after Raveena now Taapsee spoke about the sexual harassments.
The Judwaa actress clearly maintained that she has never faced sexual harassment in the industry, but she is glad that many survivors came out with their stories. The actress is also quite surprised with the way #MeToo movement gained momentum.
She added that as a member appointed by CINTAA she would strive to create a cleaner workplace. She also vowed to make better guidelines for women and speak to survivors on dealing with ongoing allegations and also encouraged other women to speak up by stating that they are the only ones who can speak up about their own stories.
On speaking about what the first meeting will be like, the actress described that the idea is to bring together a group of people, not just actresses but people from other departments and behind the camera who can sit together and discuss about the further action that needs to be taken on the issue.
We hope that Taapsee brings about a good change in the industry.
