Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan says, that women speaking up bravely about horrific incidents of sexual assault deserve our respect. Such efforts should be lauded and supported.

Khan said, “We should not just let it be about, ‘Oh this man behaved like this’ and ‘This is so shocking,’ or all of that. We should respect the emotion of the women taking such a strong step in coming out, and being so brave, and help stop this from happening in our individual industries.The sad part of it is that you don’t know if it could be happening right under your nose.”

Recently Kangana Ranaut too in an interview mentioned that her recent controversies with Hrithik Roshan, Karan Johar, and Aditya Pancholi had remarkably reduced her earnings.

However, it’s not only King Khan that spoke on these issues, another Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar and his wife Twinkle Khanna too candidly spoke on the issue.

Kumar in an interview with a publication said that sexual misconduct exists everywhere and that the recent wave of stars openly talking about their sexual misconduct stories in Hollywood will encourage others to overcome their fears and speak.

It’s just that when [sexual misconduct] happens in Hollywood, it comes out so big. Everybody knows about it, but it’s everywhere,” he said.

His wife, Twinkle Khanna too gave her opinion and said that women are fed up with this degrading behavior and hence are compelled to speak to tackle the menace.

She said “It’s an outreach that’s been suppressed for very long,” she stated. “Women are tired of being grabbed and groped. Women are tired of bending over backwards to get ahead in the workforce, bending over backwards to the point where sometimes they have to lie horizontally in order to go forward.”

She said, “I believe a young girl on the threshold of a bright career shouldn’t be pushed into speaking up and getting kicked out. It’s better to play it safe and open up when she can make a difference like many of these actresses in Hollywood are today.”
