Indian actress Preity Zinta has found herself in the soup after what critics consider her offhand comments on the #MeToo movement currently gaining ground in India, with several women media and film personalities calling out film producers, actors, journalists, and political leaders.
Zinta was being interviewed on a Bollywood website, Bollywood Hungama, when she was asked her take on the #MeToo buzz currently making the rounds in the India media. Her critics on social media say her response tantamounts to victim shaming.
In recent weeks, many actors and actresses have spoken out in support of survivors of sexual harassment; and celebrities are regularly being asked to express their opinion on #MeToo, so it's surprising that Zinta came to this interview completely unprepared, according to the BBC.
