Emraan Hashmi Takes Action To Support #MeToo Movemen

Taking tangible action against #MeToo, Emraan Hashmi has moved briskly to a reading of the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition & Redressal) Act, 2013.

The actor has decided to incorporate practical clauses for men and women in all future contracts that are signed within his recently set up production house, Emraan Hashmi Films.

Emraan Hashmi took to his social media profile and issued a statement. Which read: “Sexual harassment can not and should not be tolerated anymore. The guidelines need to be in place. We at EHF (Emraan Hashmi Films) have taken a step to include the right clauses in our contracts where any gross misconduct of this nature will be looked into as a legal violation. These are baby steps, but we need to start somewhere"

Emraan has partnered with T-Series (Bhushan Kumar) and Ellipsis Entertainment (Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar) on the Soumik Sen-directed "Cheat India", releasing worldwide on January 25, 2019. The first-of-its-kind film is a dramatic look at the malpractices in the Indian education system.

For all home-productions made after “Cheat India”, Emraan will have strict guidelines and a clear-cut code in production agreements to act as a deterrent and encourage appropriate behaviour in the workplace.

The movement was initiated with former Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta accusing actor Nana Patekar of misconduct on the sets of the film 'Horn Ok Pleassss'. The strong allegations sure garnered a heavy response from several quarters, in turn encouraging several women to speak up about sexual harassment incidents that happened with them.
