The hullabaloo of MeToo movement in India stirred controversies by naming and shaming the sexual predators of Bollywood. The movement which was heralded by Tanushree Dutta shook the industry to its core by igniting the spirit of the women to come forward and share their sexual harassment experience.


Prominent celeb names like Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl, Kailash Kher, Subhash Ghai, Anu Malik, Rajat Kapoor, Vipul Shah and others have topped the list of the sexual predators of Bollywood.


As the movement ran strong for a couple of months, the sudden silence of the movement has questioned the potency of the movement that had promised to herald positive outcomes in Bollywood.


Talking about the same, Tanushree Dutta said to a leading tabloid, "This is a spark that has ignited the consciousness of people. True, the initial burst is over, but now it will remain in people's minds and help cleanse the industry. The movement started with Bollywood and then, women, who never thought they would speak up, came forward."


Adding further, she said, "People have been conditioned to think that it's okay for men to behave inappropriately and actresses have to compromise without complaining. Fortunately, the newer generation is opinionated and will phase out the patriarchal thinking. People have been dropped from projects, studios have become careful to not hire names that are accused. [Having said that,] it's disappointing that not many actresses have spoken up on the matter. They probably gave themselves over to their ambitions. Some stories of Swara [Bhasker] and Kangana's [Ranaut] struggles have been chronicled, but several others disappeared."
