In the wake of the Me Too movement, on Sunday, actress Konkana Sen Sharma took to Twitter to share a post claiming she and several others from the industry will not be working with proven offenders.
As women and filmmakers, we come together to support the #MeTooIndia movement. We are in complete solidarity with the women who have come forward with honest accounts of harassment and assault. Our respect and admiration to them as their courage has started a revolution of welcome change.
We are here to spread awareness to help create a safe and equal atmosphere for all in the workplace. We have also taken a stand to not work with proven offenders. We urge all our peers in the industry to do the same.

Shortly after the ‘Page 3’ actress shared this post on the microblogging portal, a user wrote, “Oh come on with this hypocrisy!! Reema Kagti has herself been known to sexually harass @Roymouni during Gold movie! The blinds r all over the net! N she is part of this??”
Slamming the user who alleged the director of ‘Gold’ harassed actress Mouni Roy, Roy replied, “I was not harassed on the set of Gold by anyone. Director or otherwise. I wish this maligning would stop as it not only harassing me and Reema Kagti but also taking away from women that have truly been wronged.@konkonas @rachitmehrotra”
Me Too India is nowhere close to coming to an end. With a few names of Big-wigs from Media, Politics, Entertainment and the Sports fraternity doing the rounds, this movement continues to gather momentum.
From MJ Akbar, Alok Nath, Nana Patekar, Sajid Khan, Kailash Kher, Aditi Mittal to Lasith Malinga, several have been accused of sexual harassment.
