Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, who has always been vocal with her opinion, lashed out at filmmaker Karan Johar and veteran actor Shabana Azmi for remaining silent on the #MeToo movement.
In an interview to India Today, Kangana said, “I have been speaking about it every day. But, now, more significantly, more people need to come out and talk about it. It’s just not one person to talk about it. It’s important for people like… Where are people like Karan Johar, Shabana Azmi, they should also come out and talk.”
She added, “When the Industry is going through such a shift why are these A-list actresses not sharing their stories? I am the only one, you guys come every day. I don’t know who calls you but honestly, I have spoken a lot, it’s not for one person to talk.”
Slamming filmmaker Karan Johar, she said Karan tweeted about his airport and gym looks ten times a day, but was yet to speak on #MeToo. “Karan Johar has views about gym looks and airport looks. He tweets ten times about it. What about this? This is their identity. This is their bread and butter. When the film industry is going through such an important shift, where are they,” she said.

She also took a dig at the Koffee With Karan promo of Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone. “I was seeing the promo that they have launched of his talk show, wherein again those frivolous talks have been going on. You know making girls look like Barbie dolls. This is not done and why men who change women like clothes are glorified. Has there been a woman who has been glorified like that? Honestly, it’s funny, since I have started, I was seventeen, it’s just been about gossiping about some select people sleeping with each other. It can’t be just that, we need to grow up and it’s high time that we do.”
