Known for being outspoken and brutally honest, Jami spoke about the larger issue in connection to the #AliZafar
sexual harassment case. “I’ve stood up really crudely against the item number culture. I spoke up against selling women in our films. Ali Zafar was my very good friend. I was closer to him as compared to Meesha,” he recalled. “But when Meesha came out with her story, I knew I had to support her. But unfortunately, we made the accused’s film a blockbuster. I’m not someone who really weighs his words before speaking. And I did exactly that. I supported Meesha and the backlash that followed was problematic.”
He added, “The point is, it is extremely hard for women to come forward with such ordeals. We don’t believe them and that is what we need to change. If all the cases start to come out, majority of the showbiz industry will be in trouble.” 📝 @etribune

Isn't about time we start calling a harasser, whose predatory behavior has been confirmed by several women and girls on social media, as a harasser instead of an "accused" person? What do you think? Nonetheless, we must appreciate with how much maturity our media has done the coverage.
