Actress Radhika Apte expressed her full support to the sexual harassment survivors, who are calling out their alleged tormentors under the #MeToo campaign.

While interacting with the media at the launch of new collection of Daniel Wellington watches as their brand ambassador, Radhika Apte on Wednesday hoped that the film industry would come up with an “equal and genderless” system to tackle any kind of harassment cases.

Radhika Apte has been associated with Kwan Entertainment — one of the biggest celebrity management agencies in India — whose founder has been sacked after four aspiring actresses anonymously accused him of seeking sexual favours.

Asked whether she will disassociate herself with the celebrity management agency, Radhika said: “I am completely and closely in contact with them. The people who are associated with Kwan have helped me and I have a great relationship with them. They are taking all required action as we all support the (#MeToo) movement.”

On M.J. Akbar’s resignation as Minister of State for External Affairs in the wake of the raging campaign, Radhika said: “There are so many people involved and there are more things which will come out. So, we can’t comment on every individual case at this stage.”

“All I can say is that, as an industry, we are trying to come together and find a way of constructively making a system where we all have a safe environment and it’s going on. I am part of that and I hope that we come up with a constructive system which is equal and genderless for every human being,” Radhika Apte added. (IANS)

Accusing Without Formal Complaint is Not Authentic: Kailash Kher on #MeToo

Singer Kailash Kher, who has been accused by multiple women of sexual harassment, says that in his view, if a person is not making a formal complaint and just continues to accuse, it is not authentic.

Kailash was interacting with the media at the music launch of Marathi film “Dokyala Shot” along with Riteish Deshmukh and Abhijit Panse here.

A few months ago, singer Sona Mahapatra had shared her alleged unsavoury experience with Kailash, and after that, at least four other women raised allegations against the “Teri deewani” singer.

Sona, in an interview, has said she will not lodge a police complaint against Kailash, but she will make sure he doesn’t repeat his alleged act in future.

Reacting to this, Kailash said: “Everyone has their own thinking. If I accuse someone only by taking that individual’s name over and over again then, nothing will come out of it. If you will take legal recourse against that person, then it becomes another matter altogether.

“If I tell you that I will not make a complaint against that individual, but still I will accuse him of doing certain criminal activity, then I feel it’s not an authentic complaint.”

Does he feel Sona’s allegations are baseless?

Kailash said: “No. I will not decide what is right and what is wrong. I have never accused someone. I am living my life. We are simple human beings and we focus on creating music.”

On his upcoming projects, Kailash said: “We are now doing live concert of Kailasa all over India and the world. Along with that, we are working on our new album. It is named as ‘Tham Ja’.”
