With various sexual harassment allegations on eminent personalities from the Bollywood fraternity such as Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl and Nana Patekar, one can say that the #MeToo movement has reached the Hindi film industry. In the wake of the 'Me Too' movement that had earlier taken Hollywood by storm, former actress Tanushree Dutta accused veteran actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment. Tanushree's fight for justice has now taken a legal turn. Meanwhile, Dutta's brave step has now pushed several victims to share their stories. Several big-wigs from the entertainment industry have been named and shamed. The age of social media has left no stone unturned in shaming all those accused of sexual harassment. Ever since the controversy broke out, many Bollywood celebrities have come forward in support of the harassment victims, while a few have decided to not come forward and maintained a stoic silence.
Recently, actress Twinkle Khanna who is holidaying with husband Akshay Kumar and mother Dimple Kapadia took to Twitter to praise the women for their brave efforts for speaking up about the matter. She said "Hearing stories, identifying in different ways has led to a churning within, long conversations, talking to my mom too about all the things we internalized as working women .Scabs picked at hurt again but it is worth it.A shout out to all the brave women making the world safer to#MeToo.” What is noteworthy is that Twinkle Khanna makes it a point to express herself and even though she is vacationing with her family, you cannot take away the writer away from her, isn’t it?
