Ronnie Screwvala comments on #MeToo

In a recent interview with Spotboye, Vinod and Ronnie talked about their latest movie Pihu. When asked about MeToo, Ronnie smiled and said: "Why can't you have a conversation without that?"

Talking about preventive measures taken to ensure the safety of women on sets, Siddharth said "We've always had a zero tolerance policy when it comes to sexual harassment at the Ronnie Screwvala comments on #MeTooworkplace. That's something that we have been following since the time of UTV and Disney. It continues to run in the individual organisations we run now as well. That's not some new precedent that we had to set in the last few months. It's important as an industry for many people to adopt it, and there are many who do adopt it. And wherever it's not happening in the film industry or outside the film industry, it should be something that should be addressed."

"The word harassment is an extreme word. Even basic thing like respect is a very important element that we practise. And it's not just on the shooting floor." added Ronnie.

Kedarnath has also received an immense response on social media. I told Abhishek (Kapoor) when I came in to watch the 20 minutes of the film he wanted to show me to step in as producer, that I had come in because of our past relationship, but when I walked out, I told him that it didn't look like it was Sara's first film. It seemed like her 5th film. She is an absolute star. So Gattu asked me back, 'Are you doing the film because of her or because of me?'," laughed Ronnie.
