Artist Jatin Das and journalist Vinod Dua were accused of sexual misconduct under the #MeToo movement
Mumbai: As more skeletons tumble out of the closets of men in power, the daughters of the accused are aiming to lead by example on how to tackle the issue.
Artist Jatin Das was recently accused by environmentalist Nisha Bora of 'groping and forcibly kissing' her. The artist's daughter, filmmaker Nandita Das, had earlier released a statement along with other women directors to not work with proven offenders. In such a scenario, everyone had been curious to see her stand on the sexual harassment allegations against her own father.
The Manto filmmaker took to Facebook to say that despite the "disturbing" allegations against her father, she would continue to support the #MeToo movement.
Her statement is similar to the one posted by actor Mallika Dua in response to allegations levelled against her father Vinod Dua by filmmaker Nishtha Jain. While pledging her support to the movement, she also clarified that “This is not my battle to fight. It’s not my responsibility or my shame or my burden. I will deal with this my way and on my time."
