Nawazuddin Siddiqui mocks #MeToo movement
There’s no doubt that Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the most talented actors we have in Bollywood currently. Interestingly the actors’ views on casting couch and Me Too movement in Bollywood defers vastly from the popular opinion.
Actor Nawazuddin feels that people who don’t get work carry out movements like #MeToo. Also, he thinks that topics like casting couch are just a resort to malign the film industry.
Last year, during the promotion of ‘Motichoor Chaknachoor‘, Nawazuddin in an interview with Pinkvilla was asked about his opinion on the casting couch. The interview was recently published and the actor had replied, “It has never happened to me. Jitna industry ko badnaam karne ki koshish ki ja rahi hai woh galat hai. Yeh pata nahi media ka ek chalan sa ho gaya hai ki saari buraiya hai woh industry mein dhoond rahi hai just for breaking news. You’ll hear of more corruption in other departments. I don’t understand all this. The industry is the safest place, yeh badnaam karne ki koshish chhod dijiye. Yaha pe jinki aukaat nahi hoti hai woh bhi established ho jaate hai. People who have dreams, khud ki khujli hoti hai, this industry fulfills it all. Even after that, people abuse the industry. Isse badi ehsaan faramoshi kya ho sakti hai.”

Further sharing his views on Bollywood’s #MeToo movement, Nawaz told the Entertainment portal, “Everyone thinks they are talented. This industry is beautiful because it also makes a non-talented person into a star. One should come with a lot of training. There needs to be something extraordinary in you. Then kaam nahi hoga toh gaaliyan denge industry ko. Jin logon ko kaam nahi hota, woh duniya bhar ke ilzaam lagate hai industry pe, duniya bhar ke movement nikalte hai phir.”
