Absolutely appalled at how @neetimohan18, @diljitdosanjh, @Shankar_Live and the rest of the crew literally threw the #MeToo movement under the bus on @ColorsTV. Speaking up about sexual harassment is not easy, and here you're all belittling it as "mazaak".— Kirthi (@kirthijayakumar) March 23, 2019
Terrible that @neetimohan18 says that she represents all girls on the stage, and then threatens to walk out in response to what is clearly inappropriate and verbal sexual harassment, and then proceeds to laugh at how it is all a prank. Seriously, sexual harassment is not a joke.— Kirthi (@kirthijayakumar) March 23, 2019
And now @diljitdosanjh apologized to them!! @Shankar_Live says it was a prank by one contestant on another. Thanks to how casually you all treat an issue so serious, there is ZERO accountability in this industry for sexual harassment.— Kirthi (@kirthijayakumar) March 23, 2019
I truly hope you all introspect and think about how you've undermined such a grave issue. You've completely disrespected the emotional labour it takes to fight harassment, to speak up and to seek redress. You've reduced it all to a joke @neetimohan18 @Shankar_Live @diljitdosanjh— Kirthi (@kirthijayakumar) March 23, 2019
Here’s a rundown of what happened on the show. In the episode3, two best friends, Shikhar Rastogi and Kunal Bojewar, entered as a singing duo. After taking the stage, Kunal joked about how Shikhar has a crush on Neeti and how he thought she was looking 'kadak and Raapchik in a laal saree'.
