Sajid Khan in ‘Bigg Boss 16’: Mandana Karimi quits Bollywood after #MeToo accused bags show

'If it is going to benefit me, and I can make money, then who cares? That shows why the MeToo movement in India and many other countries didn’t really reach anywhere,' Karimi said.

Filmmaker Sajid Khan's participation in the reality show ‘Bigg Boss 16’ has been objected by many as he was accused by multiple women during the #MeToo movement. Now, actor Mandana Karimi has expressed her disappointed with the makers of ‘Bigg Boss’ for having Sajid as a contestant. She was among those who had accused the filmmaker for misconduct.

In a recent interview, Mandana said she doesn’t wish to be involved with an industry where there is ‘no respect for women’.

The actor said that she is not surprised to see Sajid Khan back in spotlight. She said people don’t care about anything if they benefit and can make money from it. She said that is the main reason the MeToo movement in India and other countries didn’t reach anywhere.

She said, ‘It was just a few women, they came, they spoke and that was it. What is the action? Who is boycotting these people? Nothing is going to happen. Because we are talking about the bigger industry, which is a place where someone is someone’s mom, boyfriend, girlfriend or husband. It’s like you, you scratch my back, and I will scratch your back.’

Mandana further stated that she was upset watching Sajid onscreen, but not surprised.

‘It does make me feel sad. To be honest, that is also the reason I have not worked for the last seven months. I’m not working anymore. I didn’t go to any auditions. I don’t want to work in Bollywood. I don’t want to be involved with an industry where there is no respect for women,’ the actor said.

Mandana, who was last seen in ‘Lock Upp’, says that her dues from the reality show are yet to be cleared.

‘I’m still fighting for my money. My full payment hasn’t come, the show was over five months back. I am still waiting to know why they aren’t clearing my dues,’ she said.

Mandana Karimi is still trying to figure out what she will do after quitting Bollywood.

‘Because being a woman, it’s not easy. I need to see what makes me happy because life is too short to compromise for anyone… There are people who agree to compromise and keep their mouth shut, or not talk about the things happening around, thinking what difference will one person make. That is the main problem.. Let’s see where my life takes me,’ she said.
