Some topics are very sensitive, hence while talking about them, one needs to be very careful. The #MeToo movement that took Bollywood by storm showcased us the ugly side of the film industry. Several names that made its way to the alleged offenders’ list left everyone shocked. The movement brought in several changes and hopefully, the new year will see a better work environment for all genders.

Recently, actress Rani Mukerji while appearing on Rajeev Masand’s ‘Actresses Roundtable’, expressed her views on the #MeToo movement. The ‘Hichki’ actress said, “I think as a woman, you have to be that powerful within yourself. You have to believe that you’re so powerful that if you ever come into a situation like that, you have the courage to say ‘back off.’ I think you have to have the courage to be able to protect yourself.  You have to take responsibility for your own self.”

Rani’s views didn’t go down well with the Twitterati and she was trolled heavily for her statement. Now when Kangana Ranaut was asked about her views on Rani’s stance, she told Times Now, “People who need support, who need to be empowered, we must empower but agar Rani Laxmi Bai jaise ladkiyan agar humari society humein de sakti hai toh, why not? Unko discourage nahi karna chahiye. If they are strong women, we should not discourage them.”

She went on to add, “I was 16-years-old when I filed my first FIR against sexual assault so there are people who can stand up for themselves, they shouldn’t be discouraged.”

On the work front, Kangana will be next seen in the historical biographical film ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’. The film is all set to hit the silver screens on January 25, 2019.
