Tina Sequeira quips about Bollywood actors' abysmal response to the #MeToo movement, often behaving like ostriches rather than use their immense clout to speak up.
Tina Sequeira quips about Bollywood actors’ abysmal response to the #MeToo movement, often behaving like ostriches rather than use their immense clout to speak up.
Love it or Hate it; but you cannot ignore the #MeToo movement. This highly controversial but much-needed movement has its fair share of evangelists and detractors.
The bomb can explode anytime on the entire film industry. It could also percolate into the other sectors, the stories bringing all these skeletons out of many closets.
While the celebrity version of the #MeToo stories is sad, it’s very amusing at the same time.
The two extremes of cacophony and stark silence caught my attention and interest. And I couldn’t help penning down this #MeToo roast.
Anurag Kashyap is calling out sex offenders? Oh yeah! It’s like the pot calling the kettle black. Next what, Shakti Kapoor calls out Gulshan Grover?
Sajid Khan turns out to be not-so-slim-shady after all. I am not surprised, because his jokes and movies have always been sexist.
Aamir Perfectionist Khan stays true to his Satyamev Jayathe image by showing his solidarity for the #MeToo movement.
Akshay Patriotic Kumar was exempted from his #MeToo duties because he’s busy doing toilet and sanitary napkin promotions. Plus his wife’s twinkly image works to his advantage. Though he did jump in finally, to his credit.
Maybe Nana Patekar has hope. His charitable acts may just save his skin. If Salman’s Being Human image can maaf saath khoon, why not!
Also, where’s Shahrukh’s head currently buried?
Karan Nepotist Johar is busy perfecting his pout and prepping his peepers for his upcoming steaming show.
Amitabh (Nah!)Bol Bachchan is, of course, above all such movements. Kyunki Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hain!
And trust Rakhi Opportunist Sawant for barking from every rooftop possible.
Also, Kareena Non-Feminist Khan for preferring to stay mum because she is all for gender equality but not faaaminism. #NotHer for sure.
Finally, I’m praying Saroj Khan doesn’t pop out of nowhere and make another insane comment on how ‘yeh sab toh chalta rahata hain’ (All this is pretty normal in the industry) and break into a jig to her cringe-worthy ‘Choli Ke Peeche’ song.
Bollywood is a mental asylum.

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
From all news reports, clearly, Aftab Poonawalla seems to be a psychopath, and It was a well-strategized story of domestic violence, abuse, subjugation, and a well-planned murder.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence, gaslighting, murder, and abetting violence, and may be triggering to survivors.
One case has gripped the nation and I do not need to mention which. My problem is with how the news reflects a victim’s character. The disrespect we show to someone who was long abused and lives no more is appalling. The disservice we do to her through spoken and written words lies in the sensationalizing of the entire case.
How do you spot a crazy human? They do not have two horns and red eyes. They may have no empathy but will show it to lure the victim, just like a child abuser lures a child with candy. Their grooming styles may vary but it is mostly about creating an untrue sense of safety and security around the victim. They present themselves as this effortless savior, an ultimate generous destination for a mentally and emotionally vulnerable person.
