Any kind of Abuse must not be Exercised or Tolerated: Radhika Apte

With #MeToo movement, many women are coming out in the open to talk about the sexual harassment they have faced by people in power across different fields, including Bollywood. Actress Radhika Apte is “loving” it and she feels everyone should come together to create safe workplaces where any kind of abuse is neither exercised nor tolerated.

“There are a lot of people in the industry who are trying to come together and find a way of forming a system which is going to be more apt to deal with the abuse or misuse of power within the industry,” said Radhika.

“I think it is very good that people are coming out and speaking about such things. It is extremely essential and I completely support the movement. I hope that we can all constructively come together and formulate a structure where everyone can feel safe sooner rather than later.

“I genuinely love that this movement is coming here,” added the actress, who is the face of new campaign of Daniel Wellington watches in India.

Radhika said: “I think it’s high time, not only in Bollywood, but in all industries that we stand up and raise awareness and speak about these issues. “I personally feel that any kind of abuse should not be exercised or tolerated and there should be systems in place that will allow people to speak about it fearlessly.

There is nothing worse than having that lack of a safe foundation that results in a person being fearful to speak up and living life suppressing what happened because they fear some consequence to talking about it. Nothing can be worse than that.”
