Vicky Kaushal believes #MeToo movement is bringing an important and much needed cultural shift.
  
The "Manmarziyaan" actor says it is necessary to believe women and pay attention to their stories. 
"It is an important cultural shift. It is a beautiful shift happening. It is so amazing to see so many women coming out with their stories of what happened with them. It doesn't matter whether it is one day or one year or ten years or 100 years. It is a still very difficult for women to come out with a story like this and place it front of the entire world in it's most naked form.

"The least we can do is we can hear them and give them a platform and dignity to say what happened with them and assure them that it will be taken seriously. It is high time something like this happened," Vicky said at India Film Project Saturday.

Filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane, who was also present at the event for a session titled 'Role of Criticism in Insta Generation', chose to stay mum on the #MeToo movement.

He refused to comment on his former Phantom Films partner Vikas Bahl sending notice to him.
