“I have been harassed 25 years ago” Saif Ali Khan

#MeToo movement is growing stronger with every passing day and actor Saif Ali Khanis the latest to speak about his horrific experience. He said that he has gone through it and so he understands the pain. “I have also been harassed in my career, not sexually, but I have been harassed 25 years ago and I am still angry about it,” Saif is reported to have said. “Most people don’t understand other people. It is very difficult to understand other people’s pain. I don’t want to talk about it because I am not important today. Even when I think about what happened with me I still get angry. Today, we have to look after women,” the ‘Sacred Games’ actor added.

Saif feels the offenders must be punished no matter how many years ago they have made the mistake.

“People are offended and they want justice. What it is happening is good and it gives you a sense that something is happening. You are removing someone from the job and it is a big deal. You are removing a person, but everybody has worked on a project so you have to balance things. People who have sexually harassed and abused women should pay for it.”

Recalling his experience during “Humshakals”, Saif said, “I don’t remember anything like this happening genuinely because if it would have happened I would not have been comfortable in that environment or allowed it to happen in front of me.” “I would hate an atmosphere where women are being looked down upon or mistreated in any way. I don’t think that’s how an atmosphere should be,” he added.

Saif, 48, asserted he will not work with those who have been accused of sexual misconduct. “We all need to have the same attitude. I don’t want to work with them. We have to understand that how these people are behaving, it is not ok, it is disgusting”, Saif said.
