Amrita Rao appreciates Tanushree Dutta for bringing in the #MeToo movement in India
It has been over five months now since the #MeToo movement gained momentum in India. After Tanushree Dutta alleged Nana Patekar of sexual harassment, several bigwigs of Bollywood including Subhash Ghai, Sajid Khan, Alok Nath, Rajkumar Hirani and many others were exposed.
However, Amrita Rao, who will be next seen in ‘Thackeray’ opposite Nawazzudin Siddiqui, appreciated Tanushree Dutta for kickstarting the #MeToo movement in the country. In an interview, Amrita said how Tanushree has given strength to women who were keeping quiet all this time.
She also noted that this has made many men get their act together and now, they are scared to be flirtatious or frivolous and that is good. The actress also said the reason for women being targeted is the society, and how the victims are made to feel. She said that now things have changed because of #MeToo.
The ‘Main Hoon Naa’ fame actress further added that she is fortunate enough to not have been in such a situation as she always had her mother on the sets. She further said that she belongs to the city and a good family. The film industry is not something they depend on for a lifestyle.
She then stated that all this only matters when people think you are weak, and take you for a ride. In fact, she also said that people who are victims of #MeToo, they aren’t from cities. They had no godfathers and their parents did not have any idea about what is happening. They were taken for a ride and it is terrible as well as sad.
