Shruti wants Bollywood to speak up against sexual abuse
Recently more than 300 Hollywood actresses, writers and directors including Natalie Portman, Reese Witherspoon, Cate Blanchett, Eva Longoria and Emma Stone have launched the campaign "Time's Up" to help fight sexual harassment in the film industry and other workplaces. Bollywood is following the steps too. Several Bollywood personalities like Radhika Apte, Tisca Chopra and Kalki Koechlin have spoken about sexual harassment. Actress Shruti Seth is one of them. “If Hollywood took over two decades to speak up against sexual abuse, how much time will the Hindi film industry take to reveal its dirty secrets?”, wonders Shruti. Shruti shared the link of an article on Twitter on Tuesday. "We'll take another 50 perhaps," Shruti wrote alongside the link. In 2015, Shruti Seth bravely faced social media trolls, which slammed her for her tweet criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's #SelfieWithDaughter campaign. At that time, Shruti had tweeted: "The hatred I've encountered today on a difference of opinion just goes to show this is no country for women." Shruti Seth started her television career with shows like Mann but it was Shararat, which made her a household name. She was also featured in television shows like Kyun Hota Hai Pyarrr. She gained popularity for her part in Kapil Sharma Show. She was a part movies such as Rajneeti, Fanaa and Waisa Bhi Hota Hai Part II.
