With #MeToo allegations still hitting the industry with full force, many celebrities came forward about the incidents happened with them in the shimmery domain of Bollywood.
Ajay Devgn, who has been a supporter of #MeToo, says he was shocked by the #MeToo allegations against some of the prominent names in the Indian film industry but he believes a due course of law should be followed in such cases.
Several Bollywood personalities which cover the spectrum of producers, directors and actors including Rajkumar Hirani, Subhash Ghai, Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl and Rajat Kapoor, actor Alokh Nath, singer Kailash Kher, music composer Anu Malik and famous Pakistani singer Ali Zafar, who were called out for sexually assaulting women over the years.
Ajay told PTI “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 believes the power game does not work anymore in the 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.”
He further added, “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.”
On the work front, Devgn will be next seen In Total Dhamaal that is slated to release on February 22.
The 49-year-old actor is also working on De De Pyaar De with Tabu, Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior, Chanakya with Neeraj Pandey, a biopic on the legendary football coach Syed Abdul Rahim and would also be seen in Luv Ranjan’s film with Ranbir Kapoor.
