"In today's time what we are talking about is woman equality and a lot of things about just speak up. I will not say much about it but will only say that we are in 2018 and approaching 2019 and it is sad when women come and share their experience about being assualted, and are silenced. They are then told why they are talking about the past or many are unable to support her. I think it is very important that all the men join hands with each other." 

Lauding Farhan Akhtar's move of coming out in support of the former Miss India Universe, Esha said, "Farhan Akhtar has said very strongly about this. I'm glad that we women have joined hands with each other, but I'm glad Farhan Akhtar took a stand. And he did not just take a stand right now, he has been taking a stand for women since quite a long time and has spoken about woman empowerment. And would not just ask the entire industry but the world to join hands and because such incidents are taking place abroad as well in Hollywood where several women who faced a similar issue were then silenced with the fear of not getting work that was instilled in them. I'm happy that women have got the strength to speak up now. And not only she but every woman should get justice." 

The actress who was last seen in a guest appearance in JP Dutta's Platan further added, "I'll thank the media for this for their support." Talking about Nana Patekar sending Tanushree Dutta a legal notice seeking an apology for her statements, the 'Rustom' actress said, "Women should support women." She continued saying, "We can go ahead if every woman comes in support."
