The #MeToo movement took the industry by storm last year with actresses Tanushree Dutta; being the torch bearer of the entire movement, after she reopened a decade-old case of sexual harassment against veteran actor Nana Patekar on the sets of their 2008 films Horn Ok Please.


And ever since; many members of tinsel town have opened up about their horror stories! However; Baahubali actress, Tamannah Bhatia has a different tale to tell. The actress feels that the movement which should have been a sensitive issue has now boiled down to a mere PR gimmick.


In an interview to a leading entertainment portal; Bhatia said," You know there were different allegations made on different people and I think the whole idea of me too movement was to get people to talk about it and share their experiences. If there is an experience that someone had and if they are talking about, it takes a lot of courage to do that. But somewhere I feel MeToo moment lost its gush because it became more of a PR ploy which shouldn't have been. It should have been given its due respect and should have been treated with more serious sense and more serious note."


For the uninitiated; Tamannah, who has worked with filmmaker Sajid Khan in two full-length feature film said that she has never faced any uncomfortable situation working with the filmmaker. 


You need to be living under the rock to not know that Sajid Khan has been accused multiple times by various actresses of making them uncomfortable and going to the extent of asking people to strip for his personal pleasure. It was in the midst of all these allegations that Khan stepped down as the director of Housefull 4!
