Shilpa Shinde rubbishes #MeToo movement, says there’s no rape in the industry

In the new wave of #MeToo movement, several celebs like Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Kailash Kher and Rajat Kapoor have been accused of sexual harassment. It has taken a lot of courage for the victims to come out.

Television actress Shilpa Shinde rubbished the entire movement and she told ZoomTV.com, “It’s rubbish. You have to take a call that time only, it’s simple. You should speak about that matter that time only. Even I got a lesson. Jab hota hai, tabhi bolo – baad mei bolne ka koi faayeda nahi, it’s useless.”

She furthur added, “Baad mei aap voice raise karte ho, usko koi nahi sunega, just controversy hogi – nothing else. You have to take a call that time only when it happens and obviously, you need power.”

Ironically, Shilpa had accused Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai producer, Sanjay Kohli of sexual harassment. When she was asked about the same, Shilpa maintained that the matter is closed and she doesn’t wish to talk about it but added that no one came to her aid back then. She said, “I don’t know why – even we know how girls are in this industry. They are coming from outside – I have seen a lot of girls they used to wear short clothes and come for meetings. They don’t know now how they are going to prove themselves. Mere waqt toh kisi ne koi awaaz nahi uthayi, kuch nahi bola. My matter is closed down – everything is shut down. I have no idea why we are talking about this topic now.I said that time they were harassing me and now that matter is over. Gade hue mudde ukhaadne mei koi faayeda nahi hai.”

She also said, “I heard there’s some NGO or organisation and they are doing this. I have faced harassment, I have gone through a lot – nobody was there for me. Koi kisi ke liye hota nahi hai. Now, something different is there. 100% koi badi power hai jo ye sab kar raha hai. I don’t believe this.”

Shilpa also mentioned, “Mere waqt toh few artists ne mujhe toh bolne hi nahi dia tha. I had a fight – I fought my battle alone. Abhi jo bhi ho raha hai that CINTAA thing is all bullshit.”

When she was asked about CINTAA’s role in her case, Shilpa laughed it off and said, “Everyone knows what they had done. No one helped me. Aur kisi ne help ni ki ye mai nahi bol rahi, sabko sab pata hai.”

She is also of the opinion that the entertainment industry shouldn’t be singled out as sexual harassment and cases are prevalent in every field. “This industry is not bad and it’s not very good. Everywhere these things happen. I don’t know why khud hi industry ka naam kharaab kar rahe hai. So those who are working and they got work – sab hi log kharaab hai? Aisa nahi hai, it totally depends on you. Aapse saamne waala insaan kaise react karta hai, aap usko kaise answer karte ho. It’s totally a give and take policy.”

Shilpa further added that everything that takes place in the industry is out of mutual consent and said, “Women are speaking now but at that time also I said that there’s no rape in this industry – zabardasti nahi hota. Whatever has happened in our industry, it’s a mutual understanding. It’s a mutual thing. If you are not ready to do that, just leave that thing.”

She also shared, “Women are speaking now but at that time also I said that there’s no rape in this industry – zabardasti nahi hota. Whatever has happened in our industry, it’s a mutual understanding. It’s a mutual thing. If you are not ready to do that, just leave that thing.”
