Sushmita interacted with the media at the Bombay Times Fashion Week here on Sunday.
She said she doesn’t find the revelations coming up in context of the MeToo movement shocking at all as people were aware of these things for long.
Sushmita Sen On #MeToo: We’ve To Listen, Believe & Let Justice Prevail! “It is going to be shocking every single time, but we are also not ignorant people. It’s not like we didn’t know these things were happening in India and in the world. I think what is more shocking that we did not listen to it for so long and that we didn’t do anything about it.

Writer-producer Vinta Nanda will remain undaunted in her fight against the sexual violation she faced 19 years ago even if defamation suits come her way, her lawyer said on Monday, a day after actor Alok Nath’s wife Ashu Singh reportedly moved a court seeking a police probe into the “Tara” writer’s accusation.

Takht: Here’s What Karan Johar Has To Say About Being Compared With Sanjay Leela Bhansali!

Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar, who is gearing up for his upcoming directorial venture, a multi-starrer period drama Takht, says its story is based on a true historical account. He vouches that it will be treated with dignity in the film.
Sharing an insight into the story, Karan told the media here: “The film is based on a true historical event that transpired… It is embedded in history and that is why it is important to tell the way it was.”
Considering what happened to Padmaavat, which also had a historical reference, isn’t it a risky genre to explore?
Takht: Here’s What Karan Johar Has To Say About Being Compared With Sanjay Leela Bhansali! Karan said: “It is not my interpretation of history but what happened then. The story is based on the Mughal empire and what people know… Every writer and director has their interpretation of history, but in this case, we are not creating anything. It is based on the historical facts and we are doing it with a lot of dignity.”

Badhaai Ho Actress Sanya Malhotra: I’m Looking For More Versatility In Work

She made her Bollywood debut with a commercially successful film like Dangal, and has since acted in films that have established an image far away from a quintessential Hindi film heroine. The actress says she wants to remain versatile as a performer rather than being recognised by one genre.
“I am looking for more versatility in my work where I will face the challenge and learn something new. Since I am not a trained actor, that is how I will learn things with every film. Limiting myself in one genre would not be the right thing. I do not fear to experiment,” Sanya told IANS here.
From playing a wrestler in Dangal to narrating the story of a village girl in Pataakha and the forthcoming Badhaai Ho— Sanya’s role in every film has been very different.
Badhaai Ho Actress Sanya Malhotra: I’m Looking For More Versatility In Work The story of Badhaai Ho revolves around the pregnancy of an elderly couple who has an adult son. Sanya plays the love interest of the son.

Actress Kriti Sanon on Sunday urged people to handle the #MeToo movement responsibly and to not dilute the movement with their anonymity.
She believes men and women must reveal their identity before imposing serious allegations against someone.
The “Bareilly Ki Barfi” star took to Twitter to share her thoughts.
Housefull 4 Actress Kriti Sanon Requests All Men & Women To Reveal Their Identity While Sharing #MeToo Stories Kriti wrote: “What happens when a #MeToo story of an ‘anonymous’ girl comes out against someone? Do we simply believe it without even knowing who the girl is or if she even exists? How does one inspect such an incident in order to come to any conclusion? Is it fair to consider the accused ‘guilty’ when the MeToo story does not come with the victim’s name? Should the media carry such stories?”
According to Kriti, any story without proper identification can “spoil someone’s name and career”.
So, she asked everyone to “handle the #MeToo movement responsibly and find o..
