‘Harvey Weinstein-Like Wave Not Happening Anytime Soon in Bollywood’
Actress Richa Chadha thinks a Harvey Weinstein-like wave, where actresses publicly name those members from the industry who would’ve indulged in any form of sexual misconduct, is far from happening in Bollywood. Speaking to the Hindustan Times, she said:
“I don’t see that happening immediately given the culture of naming and shaming in our country. But when it happens, as it is happening in Hollywood right now, the entire power structure will change. People, who you see making feminist films and claiming to be progressive etc, they will all come tumbling down.”
She also spoke of how several actors, who have established some sort of legacy in the industry, would stand to lose an entire career. “If someone suffers the loss of livelihood apart from emotional trauma, why will they come forward? In Hollywood, it is easier as actors get royalty,” she added.
