Recently, Sriti, who has always been vocal about pressing matters, spoke on Me Too Movement. Expressing her feelings regarding the burning topic - MeToo movement, she wrote, "It's very difficult to talk about horrid events of abuse/violation/assault. You've to live through them again. You're mistrusted and called names. You have the fear of losing work or not getting work in future. There's a lot to lose. I have immense respect for everyone who's come out and chosen to suffer all of the above. There's no argument about the world being unsafe for women. That's why there's a male friend or brother always dropping us home. We women tell each other about sleazeballs. We do. Putting it out there you're sharing it with all of us. Giving us courage to not stay quiet, heaven forbid, it happens to us. So, thank you very much."
