With the #MeToo movement gaining momentum in India, veteran producer Ronnie Screwvala says the system in Bollywood will become more transparent than being fearful for new talents to step in.

Sharing his opinion on the current situation where the movement has created a collective consciousness among the people in the film industry, asked if new talent will be scared to join the film industry, Screwvala told IANS here: “I can imagine there could be some trepidation and that would come more from the parents than the budding talents. But because it is out in the open now, the movement will make the system more transparent.

“Now, people know how to respond to the situation and that does not stop them (victims) to grow in their career. Earlier, it happened to people in such a way that they feared to raise their voice because they thought their career will be over if they are not compromising. Now, not anymore.”

Will the industry lose out on new talent?

“Look, the situation is serious on how these stories are coming out now, but we have to understand that is just one per cent of the whole industry. I do not think that reflects on everyone member of the community. I think now the penny has dropped with a lot of people that 99 per cent of the people do believe it is (sexual harassment at workplace) unacceptable, so if anybody does that to someone, the person can fearlessly raise her (or his) voice, knowing that it will not affect her career,” Screwvala said on the sidelines of the 20th Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival with Star.

#MeToo, Victim
Spread of awareness. No more such thing as boys are boys.

Screwvala was at the gala as the producer of “Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota”, which opened the festival.

This year at the Mumbai Film Festival, four films were dropped from the line-up — Rajat Kapoor’s “Kadhakh’ and All India Backchod (AIB) produced “Chintu Ka Birthday”, Anurag Kashyap co-produced “Bebaak” and Ere Gowda’s Kannada film “Balekempa”.

Why You Should Watch Political Documentary Series Transparency: Pardarshita?

Transparency is not an experiment, rather it is a tale of the experience and anguish of a common man, who is in search of accountability

Transparency
Transparency doesn't only take you to this corporeal world of Indian Politics, but it tells you to raise your voice against the corrupt practices along with believing in what exists as the "Truth". Twitter

– By Kashish Rai

In reality, documentaries are not merely the projection of a story, it is more a story of a life, it’s a story of survival, it’s a story of a time in which people live, it’s a story of success and failure.

In India, the entertainment industry has lagged in providing realistic content which defines the actual aesthetic of a documentary, exclusively in political thrillers. It is a big deal in itself to inculcate real-life accounts and actual scenarios pertaining to an event that has brought a revolution, and undoubtedly, you can see that in Transparency: Pardarshita.

Transparency Webseries is a waypost in the world of political Thrillers in India which exclusively highlights the off-stage candours associated with the famous India Against Corruption Movement (popularly known as the Anna Andolan) and the evolution of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) whose genesis pertains to the famous movement.

Transparency is not an experiment, rather it is a tale of the experience and anguish of a common man, who is in search of accountability. This 6-episode documentary unravels how the AAP demolished its fundamental principles based on financial transparency, decentralisation of power and internal vigilance upon which it laid its foundation just for the sake of getting in power.

After coming to power, AAP not only dismantled its core principles but abandoned its idealism and slaughtered the trust of thousands of people who dreamt of a corruption-free India. AAP also collected public funds to contest elections but gradually when it uprooted~ it removed its donors’ list from the website. Thus, Pardarshita at the same time yearns for clean political funding and the failure of the new system.

It may be easy for you to connect your life with an ordinary film but here it is much easier for you to connect with Transparency as you may better understand the sentiments of a “common man” who inevitably dreams to eradicate corruption from the system.

Documentary films are the only place where people can speak for themselves, and Transparency is one such pedestal.

It urges people to look at themselves, to look at what has been done wrong and through that really count for the future to come.. and precisely, this is what is the vision of the director, Dr. Munish Raizada, who has himself been part of this mass movement and the Aam Aadmi Party.

For this very reason, you should watch Transparency, not to become subjective but to be objective of what is the subsisting need of the hour.

Actress Tanushree Dutta Compares Nana Patekar to Asaram Bapu

Actress Tanushree Dutta has compared Nana Patekar to self-proclaimed saint Asaram Bapu, who was found guilty of raping a minor girl in year 2018. She also slammed celebrities of Bollywood for continuing to work with choreographer Ganesh Acharya, who is also an accused in her case.

Tanushree was interacting with the media along with her lawyer Nitin Satpute in Mumbai.

She filed a protest petition against the B-summary report filed by the Mumbai Police in connection with her complaint against actor Nana Patekar.

The Oshiwara police, however, had filed a B-Summary report seeking closure of the case on grounds that no evidence to support her claims had come to light in their investigation.

In October 2018, Tanushree had filed a complaint following which the Oshiwara police registered an FIR against Nana Patekar, accusing him of sexually harassing her on the sets of the movie “Horn Ok Pleassss”.

The complaint also named director Rakesh Sarang, producer Samee Siddiqui and choreographer Ganesh Acharya of the film, as co-accused in the case.

Tanushree said: aceIf you have money, you will get justice and respect but if you dona¿t have money then you will not get that. He has money and he got that money from Naam Foundation. It collects crores of rupees from corporate sectors for the upliftment of poor farmers. He has created his image as a poor man who lives in a small house. It’s a big lie and he is doing all this for show.”

Tanushree added: “It is very easy to fool people. You just have to wear a white Gandhi topi and white kurta. Asaram Bapu also wore white kurta. He used to fold his hands in front of a temple and then he became a saint. Who is checking whether he (Nana Patekar) is actually giving that money to farmers?”

Tanushree continued with her allegations against Nana: “A few months ago, I heard that he is building 500 homes for flood victims. Who is checking? Tomorrow, I will say I am queen of Timbuktu, I have made big house on moon and I have built 500 homes for aliens, would you believe me? He has collected funds to build 500 homes for sure, but we don’t inspect people who are running NGOs.”
