“#MeToo shouldn’t just be restricted to women” – Imran Khan
Imran Khan who enacts one of the lead and is the producer of ‘Mai Bhi’ also spoke out on his movie facing backlash from distributors, “The movie is about some juvenile boys who faced sexual brutality and didn’t speak up due to the fear of being ridiculed by the society. #MeToo is supposed to be a movement which gives a voice to those who haven’t been able to speak up like this. Whereas, instead of favoring us as per our movie title it has created a lot more obstacles in front of us. Our cinema is busy focusing on misconduct the women in our society face that they don’t feel the need to bring in light the assault young boys in our society face. Someone who is trying to bring out such a story is being held back because of someone accusing one of the actors of the film is not justified to the film and the teamwork that has led to this film. In my opinion, #MeToo movement shouldn’t just be restricted to women and should give strength and voice to anyone who hasn’t been able to or isn’t capable of speaking up.”
“If a person is a criminal and you don’t report the crime immediately you somewhere have led the person to believe he can do the same with others without any fear of being punished for it. If he did something to you he would be doing it someone else as well. You not raising your voice about it at that time and thinking about your career then and accusing now is just selfish. How many other women she could’ve prevented from facing such things in the last 20 years.” stated Imran Khan
