#MeToo campaign is a fad, aimed at attracting publicity and getting mileage and will recede with time, Vinod Ganatra, who heads the seven-member non-feature film jury at the 49th International Film Festival of India

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the ongoing festival, Ganatra said the #MeToo campaign got attention because of people who are keen on fanning the phenomenon.

“It is a fad which has come with time. It is a chance to get publicity and mileage. It will not last. What is authentic will last. What is not authentic will disappear. There are people who encourage it,” Ganatra said.

Mitali Srivastava Hough, the Co-Founder and Head of Strategy at Utopeia Communicationz has today announced that she has resigned from the company with immediate effect. Mitali Srivastava set up Utopeia six years ago along with Sudarshan Banerjee, Sean Coalaco and Ayan Chakraborty. Krishna Padhye and Krishnaraj Bhat later joined her as managing partners. Mitali has been instrumental in creating a strong brand with Utopeia that has in the past worked on some of the most compelling campaigns in Indian advertising and has won numerous awards.

*Letter begins*

I have resigned from Utopeia in protest at the dismissive attitude of the leadership towards the alleged survivors that came forward as part of #MeToo. Utopeia is not legally bound to investigate the allegations against the co-founder in question, but I believe there was a moral obligation. As Utopeia’s co-founder, I cannot share a value system that chose not to conduct an enquiry into this matter, and neither will I endorse a culture where sexual harassment of any kind is treated lightly.
