After the Tanushree Dutta - Nana Patekar row, Bollywood personalities like Vikas Bahl, Kailash Kher, and Rajat Kapoor have been accused of Sexual harassment and misconduct. Speaking of the Me Too movement, actress Soha Ali Khan reacted to it and said, 

"It's wonderful that the women are speaking out it's very difficult to sometimes be a woman in a country like India. They go through a lot on a daily basis and certain things we have just accepted, as to be harassed on a regular basis whether your on a train or your at work wether your in the film industry or in a bank you have just accepted it, you have been taught to brush it under the carpet and you have been taught that you will be a difficult person to work with and we have all moved on with our lives. It takes a lot of courage to stand up and say that I want to tell my story and women need to be supported, women need to be encouraged when they do that. So its a wonderful thing that it's been spoken about, that it's been accepted I don't know what consequences are going to take place if any then I hope there will be some consequences because at the end of the day it's what people want to see, a change, that what this whole movement is about so without saying anything else I completely stand in support of any woman who wants to share her story.''
