The #MeToo movement has created a lot of buzz in our country. With each passing day, some new celebrity or actor of the politician is getting accused.
But amidst all this, a sad yet interesting story came out which revealed the real reason why ‘Dia Mizra’, suddenly stopped doing movies, even when she was absolutely fit to work.
Why did Dia quit Bollywood?
In the latest interesting news, Dia Mirza openly discussed Sajid Khan on national television. And during the same chat, she revealed several other harsh truths about the glamorous Bollywood industry.
Everyone knows that Dia, unlike some other international pageant winners, did work in good movies and created a lot of fan following with her acting skills. But, sadly she appeared in very few movies and eventually stopped doing movies altogether.
Did she quit because of sexual harassment?
When she was asked in the interview about the fact, that did she ever face any kind of sexual abuse, she replied, “I have fortunately not been a victim of sexual harassment but I think there are many instances… Many many instances when I have lost out on work or I have been disassociated from a project or people have been disinterested in working with me because I was unwilling to succumb to this much-unspoken understanding that men in our industry have over our bodies and minds and our actions.”
This clearly portrays the ugly truth behind the real faces of directors and people who are behind the projects.
Does she have any regret?
She seems to be happy about the fact that she left many Bollywood movies before something unforgettable and terrifying happened with her. She doesn’t regret at all about the projects she rejected because they demanded her to comprise her dignity and sleep with the producers or directors.
What else did she say?
She believes that even though people are taking the #MeToo movement as interesting news today, soon things will change. Soon, there will a time when none of the directors or producers would be able to harass someone.
She feels that with this movement the entire face of the Bollywood industry will change and people will start respecting a person for his/her work, rather than gender.
What did Dia say about Alok Nath?
During the interview, she was asked to comment on the accusation put on Alok Nath, who is considered to be the most Sanskari person on earth. In response, she openly bashed him.
She said, “If Alok Nath was considered the sanskari individual, the one that was espousing the value systems that we believe an elderly person in a family should have but at personal front it was common knowledge that he was far from that person, I don’t understand how people could cast him in those roles. I am not saying that people who play murderers in the film should be murderers. I think that would be naïve.”
Indeed, all the accusation that has been revealed so far in the #MeToo movement are making interesting news today, but I hope these accusations are put to justice as well. Because if these crimes are brushed aside, even now, there won’t be any hope left in the name of justice in the hearts of people.
No wonder, the people who suffered sexual abuse chose to stay silent and not come out in the open to accuse the person who did it. Because even today, people are smirking and laughing about it instead of doing anything to punish the person behind it.
Let’s see, what happens next because we all know how fast our legal system works.
