Bollywood famous actress Rani Mukerji received massive flak for her contentious take on the revolutionary #MeToo movement that hit India recently. Although netizens have criticized Rani for stating that women are answerable for their own protection, Kangana Ranaut has lent support to the actress saying,
“Expecting Another Person To Make Sure,
That I Am Safe Is Not The
If I had thought like that at 16, GOD knows where I would be; perhaps I wouldn’t have been alive. How can you imagine another person to save you or be responsible for your safety?”
Telling her own experience with harassment, the Queen starlet went on to add, “When you set the rules and make a person aware of the fact that this is violating another person’s major right, if that person is a criminal, he wants to do that very thing. If initially it was a sexual urge, it’s become a mental urge and he wants to corner the young girl in the dark on the street.”
Kangana Ranaut further said, “I was pinched on my BUTT in the middle of a group and that person was right there, looking at me. It was not even sexual, it was like “I did precisely what I was not supposed to do”. And looking me in the eye likes ‘what are you going to do now?’ So, what do you expect?”
According to the Kangana Ranaut, taking charge of your safety did not necessarily mean being adept at martial arts. It also means you go to someone who can save you; it may be a teacher, an uncle you trust, a friend, or the Mumbai Police, or go to the media, find a journalist and expose them, Kangana said.
