Weeks after Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment during the shoot of ‘Horn OK Please’ in 2008, Kareena Kapoor has opened up about the #MeToo movement for the first time.
At an event, Khan was cited in PinkVilla saying, “The fact that so many women have come out and spoken is a start. Earlier people have not spoken for years and today people have come out and I really really appreciate the women who had the courage to stand up and talk and that is going to help all of us change our workplace and give us security. And whoever it is, big or small, there is no place (for them), it has to be safe. It doesn’t matter if you are the biggest superstar or the smallest, but women have to be secure and the most important thing is that we have to keep the momentum going. We have to keep the conversation alive and once we keep that alive, a lot will change.”
When asked if the industry should take a more tougher stance in the movement, Khan added, “Of course, we are doing that, a lot has been assessed and a lot of stand has been taken. I am sure legal course is also being taken.”
