MUMBAI - Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has come forward with a bold statement regarding #MeToo movement saying, 'nobody really cares about the movement, everybody cares about the headline.'

He says that many people stay silent about it because they know their ordeal will not make a difference.

He said this when he told about his own horrifying experience,  "When I was 19 years old, I spoke about sexual abuse because I went through it. When I had to speak about it, I did... A long time ago. I went on Aamir Khan’s show also and talked about it. So, it is not that I haven’t spoken about it. I did speak about it. Today, I have stopped talking because nobody really cares about the movement, everybody cares about the headline."

He further said that media is obsessed with “obsessed with Bollywood” when “sexual harassment exists” in every field.

“I think everyone needs to take that clue and find that courage to do something about it,” Anurag added.
