The #MeToo movement has taken the internet by a storm and is now in full force. After Tanushree Dutta opened up on an incident with Nana Patekar, ten years ago, the film industry and people from all walks of life are coming out with their #MeToo stories as well. And when there is a social cause the nation is fighting for, how can Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Kangana Ranaut not speak their minds?
Following the allegations against Vikas Bahl, the Queen actress spoke up about her director and about his inappropriate behavior on the sets. This statement of hers was meant to do no harm to anyone, but Bahl, however, it ended in a cat fight between Ranaut and Kapoor Ahuja.
At the We The Women summit held in Bengaluru, Kapoor Ahuja lauded Tanushree Dutta for speaking up against the powerful men in the industry. When asked about Kangana’s statement the Neerja actress responded, “I think Kangana wrote something. Kangana is obviously Kangana Ranaut. She says a lot of stuff and sometimes is hard to take her seriously. I love the fact that she has spunk and she says what she believes. If what is written what is written is true, then it’s disgusting and awful. If it’s true, then they should be punished for it.”
When Ranaut was asked to comment on Kapoor Ahuja’s statement, she said, “What does she mean by saying, ‘it’s hard to believe Kangana’? When I am sharing my Me Too story, who gives her a right to judge me? I am known to be an articulate person and I have represented my country at many international summits. I am not known because of my dad, I have earned my place and credibility after struggling for a decade.”
The actress did not hesitate to further add, “She isn’t known to be a great actress, neither she has the reputation of being a good speaker. What gives these filmy people right to take digs at me? I will demolish each one of them.”
We shouldn’t say, but we like some steam and we like the fire! Also Mrs Ahuja, we don’t want to be biased, but everyone has voices and they’re as equal.
