Women should speak up when they are wronged: Sonakshi Sinha on #MeToo movement

New Delhi: Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha broke her silence over the ongoing MeToo movement. The whole movement has forced some of the biggest names in the industry to bite the dust.

Sonakshi told ANI, "Women should 100% speak up when they are wronged, men who have wronged the women should be 200% punished. But I also feel that facts&figure should be verified before the media talks about it. If it is in the hands of the law then a law should take its course."

Tanushree, who had lodged a complaint with Cine & TV Artists Association (CINTAA) a decade ago against Patekar. After being away from the limelight for over a decade, Tanushree spoke about the case recently. Since then, a number of actresses from the film industry have come out in support of her. Kangana Ranaut, Richa Chadha, Swara Bhaskar, Sonam Kapoor, Shilpa Shetty, Chitrangada Singh and several others have condemned acts of sexual misconduct.

Patekar, who was supposed to address the media today to speak about Tanushree's allegations, has reportedly called off the press conference.

Dia, as a producer, feels it is important for the women staff in any organisation feel safe.

This comes after filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane Sunday offered clarifications on the row over sexual harassment allegations against their Phantom Films partner Vikas Bahl.

In separate statements, Kashyap and Motwane, who formed the company along with Bahl and Madhu Mantena seven years ago, detailed the backdoor deliberations that took place in order to punish their partner.

Not just women from the film industry, women from different professional backgrounds have narrated disturbing incidents of sexual misconduct involving them and the people they have worked with.

Sonakshi Sinha mum on Tanushree-Nana row

Mumbai: Actress Sonakshi Sinha is not ready to comment on the Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar row, saying it is important to know both sides of the story before commenting.

"It is better to say the least about this issue because there will always be two sides to the story. We have often seen that when someone comes up with such an issue, then the media and people start discussing about it. But later we find out that the truth is something else. So, I think without knowing both sides of the stories, we shouldn't get into it," Sonakshi said when asked about her stand on the issue at an event here. 

The #MeToo movement has gained momentum in Bollywood with Tanushree alleging that Nana harassed her on the sets of their 2008 film 'Horn Ok Pleassss'. Tanushree has also filed a police complaint against Nana, who has denied the allegations. 

Sonakshi said that creating a safer workplace for all was a must. 

"If a woman feels unsafe in a working environment, then I think it is anyway very wrong. No woman should be made to feel unsafe when she goes to work and strict measures should be taken to make sure that a woman is safe wherever she goes." 

Sonakshi said that she hasn't experienced sexual harassment in her life but feels girls must be taught self defence. 

"I would urge our government to incorporate self-defence as a compulsory subject. I have been saying this for a long time.

"If a girl knows how to protect herself from a very young age, then I think she can protect herself. She need not be dependent on a man." 

Sonakshi was interacting with the media at the Elle Beauty Awards 2018 where she won 'Be More Elle Award' on Saturday here.

On work front, the actress is busy shooting for "Kalank". 

"Kalank" also features Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit-Nene and Aditya Roy Kapur. Abhishek Varman is directing the epic drama, which will hit the screens on April 19, 2019.
