We will respect whatever people think of the film but you should see it first,” the actor told PTI.

‘Take Back the Workplace’ March took place on Hollywood Boulevard with marchers protesting against workplace harassment in the entertainment industry. Hundreds joined the march which was organised by comedian Tess Rafferty with the help of the Feminist Majority Foundation, Civican and We for She.
The event was combined with #MeToo Survivors March that was headed by Tarana Burke. The hashtag has been used by people on social media to share their personal experiences of sexual harassment.
While marching their way to the CNN Building on Sunset Boulevard, they chanted, “Your junk is not my job” and, simply, “Harvey Weinstein sucks.”
Lauren Sivan, accuser of Harvey Weinstein, who was present there at the march said, “You will no longer keep us quiet or label us ‘gold diggers’ or ‘psychos.’ We want our daughters and sons to be able to go to a workplace and never have to take a meeting with a dude in a bathrobe.”
