In what came as a rude shock to the industry; several big names dropped out of the bag when India's very own #MeToo was initiated by Tanushree Dutta who accused Nana Patekar in a decade-old case of sexually harassing her on the set's of Horn Ok Please.


Every since names like Sajid Khan, Vikas Blah, Alok Nath, Kailash Kher, and filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani have been doing rounds. While most of the industry has voiced their opinion and disapproval of such practices and people; recently actress Isha Koppikar, who is all set to make her comeback with a Tamil film certainly did have an opinion very different from those that have cropped up so far.


Isha; who recently joined politics by joining the BJP was quoted by a leading entertainment portal saying," I feel the integrity and respect of the woman first lies with her, she should first respect herself. Secondly, I can speak for myself... I am not someone who will compromise on my scruples, morals, and principals but to each their own. If you have been forced to do something, when I say forced I mean abused when I say abused I mean when you have either been drugged or molested, this definitely is unpardonable and the perpetrator should be punished. But when somebody is conscious, when someone gives you an offer and the onus lies on you, I don't think you can blame the other person."


Furthermore; she said if a person gives an indecent proposal to a woman who is in a complete state of consciousness and complies with such advances it is totally the woman at fault. "I believe that if a woman for any reason gives in for the proposals which are indecent, then you cannot blame the man. It is completely the woman at fault. At that point whatever it is, she has the right to refuse it. Probably, I don't know they are under what pressure. If it has to do with their livelihood, survival, better job, of a job, of a promotion, you never know what the pressure is about, but she left the pressure to overpower her which is not right, according to me," said the actress.


Isha also said," After doing that, you cannot after four, five or 10 years blame the man, but if a woman is forced, raped, molested and drugged, then the perpetrator needs to be hanged, not brought in life but he needs to be hanged. He should get severe punishment because you cannot do such heinous act without permission. When a woman has said yes and accepted the proposal, it's consensual. So, why are you coming out after 10 years and blaming the guy? You were ready to do it. Whether you got your job done or not done or he failed to give you what he had promised, then all that is second. Firstly, you comprised on your principals or values that were inculcated by you and your parents." 


However; Isha does feel that such practices are wrong and a woman should voice her opinion against any such practice without being shy and scared. "I would tell these women who are scared... please don't be. Be comfortable and go ahead talk about what's happened to you and then there are a lot of commissions where these kinds of complaints are registered. But the first step has to be from your end. You have to speak about it, there's nothing to feel shy about it. You should feel shy if you won't talk about it, that means you are reinstating you are reinforcing the bad behavior of this person."

 
On the professional front; the ‘Kya Kool Hai Hum' actress is making a comeback in Sivakarthikeyan's next, which will be a Tamil film.
