'My statement has been edited', says Preity Zinta on #Metoo
When Preity was asked she ever experienced any kind of bad behaviour, she replied, "No, I haven’t, I wish I had,” she laughed. “People treat you the way you want to be treated,."
Mumbai: Bollywood actress Preity Zinta, who recently gave her views on #Metoo had taken social media by storm. Preity, who is making her comeback to Bollywood with Bhaiaji Superhit, was asked to express her thoughts on #Metoo Movement.
The Kal Ho Naa Ho gave her opinion on the issue but it looks like her comment has been taken out of context.
Preity feel disappointed that it happened and lashed out at the journalist for editing her interview on #Metoo movement.
The actress tweeted, "I’m really surprised & upset that journalists like @iFaridoon take an interview & edit it to sound controversial for better traction. If I said “I wish someone had bothered me” - it meant I would have probably beaten them up if they had... Interviews taken out of context #Metoo."
The actress in an interview said, "I think It's important that this whole Me Too Movement has started but it is also important that women use it for the right thing because there are men and women who would use the position of their power for their advantage. There are small percentage of women that are using it, and they’re diluting the movement but there are also women who have gone through all these and we have heard so many stories in the industry."
When Preity was asked she ever experienced any kind of bad behaviour, she replied, "No, I haven’t, I wish I had,” she laughed. “People treat you the way you want to be treated."
According to Preity, she meant by her statement that if someone had tried to misbehave she would have given him a slap but my statement is being taken in wrong way.
It is to be mentioned that after her interview, Priety is being trolled on social media. People are saying that her statement was very insensitive and silly.
