Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor Khan on Tuesday lauded the courage of women who have named and shamed some of the most powerful names in the Indian film industry, saying it is because of these women the environment in the film business will begin to change.
She was speaking at the launch of her maiden radio show, What Women Want, on Ishq 104.8 FM.
“We are openly having discussion today. The fact that there are so many women, who have come out and spoken, that’s a start. The fact is earlier people hadn’t spoken for years. Today, people have come out and I really appreciate those women, who actually had the courage to stand up and talk and that is going to help all of us change our workplace and give us security,” Kareena said.
Kareena Kapoor Khan further said that irrespective of a woman’s stardom or position in the film industry, she deserves a safe workplace.
“Whoever it is, big or small, it has to be safe. It doesn’t matter whether you are the biggest superstar or the smallest, women have to be secure. And the most important thing is that we have to keep this momentum going. We have to keep the conversation alive and once we do that, a lot will change,” the actor said.
