We shouldn’t give up on #MeToo: Taapsee
Actress Taapsee Pannu says people must not stop raising their voice against sexual harassment at workplace and continue the #MeToo movement.
Her comment comes just two days after director Vikas Bahl was given a clean chit after an allegation of sexual misconduct made against him by a former employee of the now disbanded Phantom Films, was probed, and his credit as director of “Super 30” was restored.
Even actor Alok Nath, who was accused of rape by a writer-director, has appeared in the film “De De Pyaar De”.
Asked how she looks at the situation, Taapsee told IANS: “Look, if the person who is accused of sexual harassment, doesn’t get punished, of course the spirit of the movement, the spirit of a woman who comes out with the story of abuse in public, gets shattered.
