    The #MeToo and #TimesUp campaign has taken the world by storm and Hollywood celebrities have shown sexual predators like Harvey Weinstein and several others their place, which is out of the film industry. A few Bollywood actresses opened up about the casting couch issue and revealed that there are people like Weinstein in the Indian industry, but did not reveal any of their names, and left things to our imagination.

    "As far as exploitation and harassment is concerned, I wouldn't stand for it."

    "The fact of the matter is that if an A-list star is accused of something like this, you will require a large number of people to come forward, including A-list actresses and actors, to make a difference."

    Actors Are Like Gods In India!

    "Actors in this country are worshipped. So it will take many voices for people to acknowledge that huge stars could have such an ugly side."

    Ileana Doesn’t Watch The Kevin Spacey Show

    "I can't watch Kevin Spacey's show anymore, though I have loved it earlier because he has been accused of harassment. It disgusts me as a person."
