Chitrangada Singh on Me Too movement: It Is Completely Different Than The West And We Should Appreciate That
Chitrangada Singh recalls the sort of scepticism she had faced on turning producer, the tough choices she had made in her career, and the silent Me Too movement that she says has begun in the industry. The Me Too Movement is a movement that raises its voice against sexual harassment and assault. The actor producer Chitrangada Singh says about what she thinks about Me Too movement.
She adds, “When you say you should come out and talk about your abusers and name them, yes that’s very courageous but what needs more courage is to be able to make a choice when you’re in that place. That for me is a more important ‘Me Too’ movement. When you are willing to make a choice and you’re saying ‘I’m not going to take this and I’m willing to let go what I’ve to but I don’t allow this.’ You walk away from that and talk about it. You tell your fellow workers and people that this is the reason why I left this.” On being asked the view of Hindi film industry on Me Too Movement, Chitrangada loudly appreciates and salutes the women of the industry as now days they are talking openly about sexual harassment with their colleagues and “finding ways to not let this happen.” They are discussing it with their colleagues and finding ways to not let this happen.
The Soorma producer Chitrangada has all different scenario for this, she feels “it’s not about going out in the media and making a statement and calling names, that it alone becomes a Me Too movement. There is a Me Too movement without a hashtag for the media. She says it’s not about one country every country and society would have their way of doing it. That is what we should appreciate instead of saying ‘oh you don’t talk about it.’ How we are going about it is completely different than the west and we should appreciate that”. Talking about Chitrangada’s work front, with Soorma, she has put a step in the field of production, while her acting career looks better than before. She has Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster and Bazaar with in her cooker.
