Mandana Karimi quits Bollywood after Sajid Khan enters Bigg Boss: ‘MeeToo didn’t reach anywhere

New Delhi: Actor Mandana Karimi decided to leave Bollywood as she claims there is no respect for women in the profession, where MeToo accused and disgraced producer Sajid Khan is welcomed with applause on the small screen. She also said that she is not surprised he is back in the spotlight with no consequences after the accusations. For the unversed, Karimi was one of numerous women who came out over four years ago to accuse Sajid of abusing his position of power.

“To be honest, I’m not surprised to see him back in the spotlight. For people, life has become like I will put my head under the sand. If it is going to benefit me, and I can make money, then who cares? That shows why the MeToo movement in India and many other countries didn’t really reach anywhere,” Karimi says.

She continues, “It was just a few women, they came, they spoke and that was it. What is the action? Who is boycotting these people? Nothing is going to happen. Because we are talking about the bigger industry, which is a place where someone is someone’s mom, boyfriend, girlfriend or husband. It’s like you, you scratch my back, and I will scratch your back”.

Ever since Salman Khan presented Sajid as a participant on Bigg Boss, there has been outrage on social media, with some criticising the channel and the show’s creators for dubbing Sajid a MeToo accuser while his name has not been cleared of the allegations.

Mandana Karimi was last seen in Kangana Ranaut’s reality show Lock Upp.
