As the MeToo movement hits the Hindi film industry, every celebrity has to face the constant questions about the accusations popping up. Recently, Saif Ali Khan, who is basking in the success of his film Bazaar, shared his views on the safety of women in the workplace. The actor believes no one has the guts to misbehave with the members of his family.
“It is a very unequal society. I don’t think anyone will misbehave with my people… I don’t know why I feel like this, but be it my mother or sister or wife, I feel people will not have the guts to do that with them,” the actor told IANS.
“It might be because they have certain protection around them. So, we have to protect the ladies who don’t have that protection around them or that aura that protects them. We have to make the place safe for the vulnerable ladies,” he added.
The 48-year-old actor hopes the ongoing MeToo movement “does not die down” in the coming time.
“We have to come to a situation where women feel safe enough to complain immediately and matters will be taken seriously. I hope the #MeToo movement stays in future and does not die down because it will create a comfortable atmosphere for everyone,” he said.
On the work front, Saif’s Bazaar, directed by Gaurav K Chawla, hit the screens on Friday. He is currently shooting for the second season of the Netflix series Sacred Games.
