The Me Too movement against sexual harassment at workplace gained momentum in India after actress Tanushree Dutta accused veteran actor Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her. Since then, women in the Hindi film industry have become more vocal about the issue.


And the fierce and sassy; Kangana Ranaut, who is known to not mince her words about her opinions on various issues and people; has shared a harrowing experience that she faced in context to the movement.


Kangana; who is on a promotion spree for her next release, Manikarnika: Queen of Jhansi has said the #MeToo movement in Bollywood should be analyzed at different levels. She also added that women should be responsible for their own safety and why the right message needs to be given out to young girls.


Supporting Rani Mukherjee's stance on the issue; the ‘Fashion' actress said," It's sad to see that a woman was getting bullied and trolled for the cause of women's empowerment. Maybe Rani was not able to articulate herself, but if you see the way she leads her life, she is the epitome of women's empowerment. Anyone who knows her wouldn't find her weak or timid. There are people who talk a lot, but they don't necessarily live up to it. She's definitely one of those who lives up to it. So, that is scary about this whole thing."


Furthermore; the actress revealed her own experience where she was sexually harassed by a stranger, publically. Elaborating on the same; Kangana was quoted saying," I was pinched on my butt in the middle of a group and that person was right there, looking at me. It was not even sexual, it was like ‘I did exactly what I was not supposed to do'. And looking me in the eye like ‘what are you going to do now?' So, what do you expect? I think somewhere we should tell the girls that there are a few rules. Don't say ‘maybe,' when you want to say ‘no', it's important. Your safety doesn't mean you can do Taekwondo and karate. It also means you go to someone who can save you; it may be a teacher, an uncle you trust, a friend, or the Mumbai Police, or go to the media, find a journalist and expose them. So, to tell them this and then get severely trolled for it, is horrible." 


'Manikarnika'; which features actors like Ankita Lokhande, Atul Kulkarni, Danny Denzongappa, Suresh Oberoi and Jisshu Sengupta in pivotal roles, will release on January 25th of January and will clash with Nawazuddin Siddqui starrer; ‘Thackrey', based on the real life of Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackrey.
