The Bol Bachan actor Ajay Devgn says he was shocked by the #MeToo allegations that were put on some of the prominent names in the Indian film industry and he said that he believes a due course of law should be followed in cases like these.
Many prominent Bollywood personalities have been accused as of now, the list includes the names of directors such as Subhash Ghai, Rajkumar Hirani, Sajid Khan, Rajat Kapoor, Vikas Bahl, singer Kailash Kher, actor Alok Nath and music composer Anu Malik, these are the directors, composers etc who have been till now accused of sexually harassing women over the years.
Ajay told PTI that:
“A couple of things came out and some people are like this but everybody is not like that. I would say some names did shock me but then I can’t be judgmental completely till somebody proves someone guilty or not.”
Ajay has supported the movement in the past and he believes that the power game does not work anymore in the Film industry.
“New generation is thinking differently, they are not going to accept the bullshit what people used to accept couple of years back. They are changing and we are changing and that change is for better. With the media coming in, everything is out in the open.”
“You can’t say ‘I am very powerful and you can’t mess with me’, you cannot mess with anybody as everybody is at the same platform, at the same stage. So big or small doesn’t matter anymore, which is a good thing.”
Now talking about his upcoming movie, the 49-year-old actor, Ajay Devgn will be next seen in the movie “Total Dhamaal” that will be released on 22 February 2018. He’s also working on many others like “De De Pyaar De” with Tabu, “Chanakya” with Neeraj Pandey, a biopic on the legendary football coach Syed Abdul Rahim & also on a film by Luv Ranjan with Ranbir Kapoor.
