In the light of recent events, Lisa Ray has come out to support Tanushree. She took to her social meda handle and said, "Following with interest and empathy the dialogue that has been opened by actress #TanushreeDutta in India. It’s no secret that women are sized up and cut down in the Hindi film industry and while things are changing, we need more voices to come forward, in sane and clear sighted discussion 🙏 Now when I discuss with friends the #MeToo movement, the Kavanaugh case and closer to home, the voices raised when an actress accuses a reputed Hindi film actor of harassment, I look at my daughters, Sufi and Soleil, and think, how would I want them to be treated? What sort of principles do they need to abide by in the world as they grow? And will they inherit a world that abides by them? #mySouffle #believeSurvivors #changetheculture #daughterlove #futureisfemalebabies."
