Mumbai, Oct 15: Actress Kriti Sanon on Sunday urged people to handle the #MeToo movement responsibly and to not dilute the movement with their anonymity.

She believes men and women must reveal their identity before imposing serious allegations against someone.

The “Barielly Ki Barfi” star took to Twitter to share her thoughts.

Kriti wrote: “What happens when a #MeToo story of an ‘anonymous’ girl comes out against someone? Do we simply believe it without even knowing who the girl is or if she even exists? How does one inspect such an incident in order to come to any conclusion? Is it fair to consider the accused ‘guilty’ when the MeToo story does not come with the victim’s name? Should the media carry such stories?”

According to Kriti, any story without proper identification can “spoil someone’s name and career”.

So, she asked everyone to “handle the #MeToo movement responsibly and find out a lawful way” for it.

“All women/men who want to share their #MeToo stories to either come out in open with their names and faces or file a FIR or a legal case(while asking for your identity to not be given to media or public) so that case can be at least inspected and the #MeToo movement does not get misused or diluted,” the 28-year-old added.

Kriti thanked girls for showing courage to speak out their harassment stories in public and said that #MeToo movement will now bring fear in people before they do anything wrong.

“Thanks to you girls and the movement that now people will fear being caught if they wrong anyone. This fear was much needed and is hopefully here to stay.”

The actress is also a part of film “Housefull 4”, which was earlier being directed by Sajid Khan before multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct. He has been replaced in the project now.

Jacqueline Fernandez

Genda phool, sung by Badshah and Payal Dev, has garnered over 550 million views on YouTube, and actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who stars in its music video, is happy.

The song ran into controversy upon release in March when charges of plagiarism rose. The song draws its hook line from a classic Bengali folk song, “Boro loker biti lo”, and social media was quick to notice that fact. Badshah later contacted Ratan Kahar, creator of the Bengali original, in an effort to sort things up.

The video features random shots of Durga Puja festivities, and Jacqueline is seen in a sari that is worn the traditional Bengali way in some scenes.

“I am extremely happy and grateful that people have showered so much love towards the song. We crossed 550 million views recently and it’s insane. I had so much fun shooting this song. It was a different experience as genre was unexplored for me. The whole process was super exciting, from wearing a Bengali attire that I had never donned to experiencing the touch of folk music and overall, the vibe with its beats,” said Jacqueline.

“It was lovely to see the fan videos as well as the fans recreating the looks and making dance covers on it. I am so happy that we could entertain everyone with this track during the lockdown”, she added.The song also has Pahari and Gujarati versions.

Pop star Selena Gomez has written a message to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and the social network’s Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, urging them to help stop the spread of hate on the platform ahead of the November election.

“Facebook and Instagram are being used to spread hate, misinformation, racism, and bigotry,” Gomez wrote in a private message to the Facebook leadership.

The move comes barely a couple of days after reality TV star Kim Kardashian West decided to freeze her social media accounts for 24 hours on Wednesday to protest against the spread of “hate, propaganda and misinformation”.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Orlando Bloom, Kerry Washington and Sacha Baron Cohen are among those who took part in the protest.

Gomez shared the message she had sent to Zuckerberg and Sandberg with her over 193 million followers on Facebook-owned Instagram on Friday.

“I am calling you both to HELP STOP THIS. Please shut down groups and users focused on spreading hate speech violence and misinformation. Our future depends on it,” she said in her message, while also reminding them of the upcoming election.

“We cannot afford to have misinformation about voting,” she continued. “There has to be fact-checking and accountability,” the pop star said, adding that she hopes to hear back from the Facebook leadership at the earliest.

Facebook and Instagram have faced criticism from the organisers of the #StopHateforProfit campaign, launched in June, which accuses the platforms of not doing enough to stop hate speech and disinformation.
