The #MeToo movement in Bollywood might be dying a slow death but the horror stories are etched on our minds forever. Many prominent names including Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, Sajid Khan, Nana Patekar and Subhash Ghai were listed in this not-so-coveted list and the victims finally gathered some courage to come out in open about it. While Tanushree Dutta was firm enough to take a stand, others like Fatima Sana Shaikh are still refraining from targeting the accused. The Thugs of Hindostan in her recent conversation has highlighted the issue but requested everyone to not judge her for the same.

In her recent interaction with Mumbai Mirror, when the actress was asked to react on this #MeToo movement and reveal if she was ever a victim of it, she said, "I don’t want to expose that side of my life I’m dealing with it, speaking to people I’m close to. Just like I won’t judge those who want to share their horror stories, I expect not to be judged for not sharing mine."
Though she prefers to keep her personal affair extremely private, she's glad for the movement was highlighted in our country. "Now sexual predators are scared of being shamed in public and shunned by the industry.
