#MeToo movement has finally started in India when Tanushree Dutta shook the entire country with her story. Former beauty Queen and the actress alleged that she was harassed by veteran actor Nana Patekar on the sets of ‘Horn Ok Pleasss’. Tanushree gave courage to every single woman who has gone through sexual assault in the industry and outside it. Names of renowned celebs from the B-town like Rajat Kapoor, Vikas Bahl, Kailash Kher and ‘Sanskari’ actor Alok Nath have been included in sexual assault cases. Not only celebs, but even commoners have shared their experiences on social media.

Taapsee Pannu, who has always been outspoken about her opinions, has opened up on the #MeToo movement. In an interview with Indian Express, the actress said, “I’m so happy it is finally happening. People used to keep asking me for so many years that why it has not happened in India. Fortunately or unfortunately, I’ve not gone through this. So, I wish I could share something that could start it. But I’m so happy it has finally started and is gaining momentum. Better late than never. I’m happy it’s finally here.” 

The ‘Pink’ actress has always spoken up on issues related to women. When she was asked about this, Taapsee said, “(I do it) Especially for the issues I strongly believe in and if you Force me to speak. It’s not like I speak on other people’s issues. But if there is something directed towards me and I stay quiet, that means I’m accepting that I’m wrong. But I’m not. So I speak up.”
