The #MeToo tsunami has hit Bollywood and by every passing minute, a sexual harassment story surfaces on the internet. Thanks to Tanushree Dutta, women have mustered up the courage to come out in the open and talk about their ordeals. After Tanushree Dutta renewed a decade-old sexual harassment case against Nana Patekar, Vinta Nanda accused Alok Nath of sexual misconduct. Thereafter, Sandhya Mridul, Deepika Amin and others supported Nanda and narrated their sexual harassment stories. Very recently, Sajid Khan was condemned of sexual harassment by assistant director Saloni Chopra, actor Rachel White and journalist Karishma Upadhyay.

Moreover, Subhash Ghai has been accused too of raping a woman after spiking her drink several years ago. But what is note-worthy is that amid all the controversy, B-town celebs are extending their support towards the victims and openly endorsing the #MeToo movement. From Priyanka Chopra, Dia Mirza, Twinkle Khanna, Kangana Ranaut, Sonam Kapoor to Farhan Akhtar, Sushmita Sen and others, Bollywood is collectively supporting this movement.

The latest actor to voice his support for the Me Too movement is Anil Kapoor who believes that women are superior to men in every way. “I have three women in my house and they're fiercely independent. I'm a listener and I think the world should also be a listener and listen to whatever they have to say. For me, girls are superior in every aspect and I have said that always. What is happening is fantastic," Anil Kapoor said, in an interview to ANI.

Anil Kapoor’s daughter and actor Sonam Kapoor was one of the first actresses to extend her solidarity to Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar controversy. Soon after the accusation, Sonam took to Twitter and wrote, “I believe #TanushreeDatta and @janiceseq85 recollection of the account. Janice is my friend, and she is anything but an exaggerator or a liar. And it’s upto us to stand together.”

Did anyone read KamalHassan's statement on Metoo? PV post it here for us to be able to comment. He wants the accused to come and accept it, he says, then it's a fair movement. Says only the accuser and accused should comment and no one else. How many harassers, abusers and rapists come and accept it? What an idiotic statement.

Honestly speaking, he is among the few bollywood men who I think are decent human beings! If any woman actually comes forward with a sexual harassment allegation against him, it is definitely going to be shocking and unexpected.p.s.I really really hope my belief about him is not shattered in the future

i dont think sonam kapoor would have been such a loud mouth and vocal about these kind of issues if her father is a sexual offender..

Stop being naive. Anil had affairs with Madhuri and many other women while his doormat wife tolerated him. He is no saint

Haha Madhuri is too smart for bollywood men. She was too detached to even make close friends with most people she worked with.

Madhuri is no saint, she had her days of fun with Anil Kapoor, Vinod Khanna and Sanjay Dutt and few others too

Affairs are not harassment but yes, he is no saint either. Only his delusional daughter thinks that.

would have taken this statement more seriously, if he didnt start the sentence with " MY house" . Shows the subconcious truth

Our house anil....sunitha and the kids and maybe ur parents and siblings too ...should be allowed to say it is their house....OUR house anil...you should say our house

For the life of me, I hope your life and moral conduct reflects it.

Tisca Chopra said you were behind make up artist during the movie u both were shooting together

No she didn't. The said movie starred both anil and rishi kapoor. It's a guess who was after the hair dresser. And track record points to rishi.

Tisca had scenes with only Anil Kapoor not one scene with Rishi. Not that Rishi is clean, but this is clearly about Anil.
