Just like in Hollywood, the Me Too movement is going rampant in Bollywood as well with names like Nana Patekar, Vikas Bahl, Rajat Kapoor and more being accused of sexual harassment.
Many female actors are now coming out in support of these brave women and are encouraging them to speak up and fight for themselves. This includes actress and now producer Dia Mirza, who promises to encourage women and have a safe working ecosystem.
Dia tweeted, "Support those that find the courage to express their truth. Use this time to introspect. As we have. As producers, we will ensure that our company @BornFreeEnt encourages women to speak up. Already working on gender balance we care for a safe work ecosystem. @sahil_sangha #Metoo."
Dia's statement along with the tweet reads as, "It's important that individuals are finding the courage to speak up. And even more important that the media approach this sensitivity, care and due investigation. Harassment of any kind at a workplace or anywhere else is absolutely unacceptable."
"We all want to live and work within an ecosystem that is safe and fair for all. hope that the strictest action is taken against anyone found guilty of violating this fundamental right. It's important that cases be registered and due investigation conducted. Media must report facts," Dia added.
