Bollywood’s #MeToo movement has taken the industry by a storm, and many of the celebrities are coming out in support of the victims.
Celebrated music director AR Rahman shared his views on Monday. Taking to his social media handles, Rahman said his aim had always been to create a safe working environment for everyone.
His post reads: “Been observing the #MeToo movement… Some of the names have shocked me… both the victims and their perpetrators… I would love to see our industry become cleaner and respectful of women… More power to all the victims coming forward!!”
“In all my endeavours, my team and I are committed to creating an environment where everyone finds a safe creative space to bring their best, evolve and succeed.”

He, however, added a note of caution. “Social media offers great freedom for victims to speak up, however we should be careful in creating a new internet justice system, in case it’s misused,” Rahman said.
In the wake of the #MeToo movement, several prominent names have been accused of sexual misconduct. These names include Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl, Anu Malik, and others. It all started when Tanushree Dutta accused veteran actor Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of the Horn OK Pleassss.
