Keeping the flag of courage flying high, women in India have opened up about sexual harassment in work places. Many women from Bollywood have come forward with their stories of being sexually harassed by male members of the fraternity. All this had begun after actress Tanushree Dutta had accused senior actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment during the shoot of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2008. She had explained her entire ordeal on national television and later filed a case against the actor as well. A number of Bollywood actors came out in her support including Farhan Akhtar, Sonam K Ahuja, Raveena Tandon and more. 

Now, actress Jacqueline Fernandez has also extended her support to the Me Too movement. The actress, in an interview expressed that the movement shouldn’t be limited to the film industry and that sexual predators are everywhere. She said, “It's very important to remember that the gender dialogue is a conversation that's a long overdue and let's not limit it to our film industry. It's a dialogue which has been long overdue in our society as well. Unfortunately, the sad truth is sexual predators are all around us.” She further added, “They are sometimes in our own household so, we should not deviate from the actual issue which is not entirely about sex but it's about the power struggle. We really have to stick to the issue and be serious about it if we want solutions and if we want to have safe workplace for everyone and for society.”

The Race 3 actress mentioned that the problem of sexual harassment wasn’t just limited to Bollywood and was a general issue of the society. She also expressed that if solutions had to be figured out then everyone must take this problem seriously. Me Too movement’s gaining momentum has encouraged women from the industry to open up against prominent Bollywood personalities. After Nana Patekar was named, other names from Bollywood that came out included Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Rajat Kapoor, Kailash Kher, Anu Malik and more. With this, the Me Too movement is getting stronger by the minute and is sure to lead the way for change in our society.

Well done Jaqueline express your opinion on this issue no any other A list actress other than Kangana comment on the issue. Love her for be it natural disaster like floods and social issue she come forward and make contribution. Very intelligent answer.

We all know katrina had zero chance of ever making it in Bollywood based off her looks and acting.This is what men in bollywood take advantage of ,desperate woman like kat who are ready to do anything to make it big.This is what needs to stop

Katrina used that very instrument to mark her mark in the industry and is how crying foul about it...don't act about it kat...u went all out to woo gulshan salman and every other prominent celeb to get ahead in the game !!

Katrina was okay with everything salman did because she was desperate to get into the film industry.Kat is a below average actress and she knows the only way to get into films is using her skin color ,exposing and being a part of satisfying film makers.She is continuing to do the same with salman now because salman has a thing for foreign girls .

Wow some people have obsessive hatred towards Katrina .

We all know Jacqueline had zero chance of ever making it in Bollywood based off her looks and acting. This is what men in Bollywood take advantage of, desperate women who are ready to do anything to make it big. This is what needs to stop.

Based on Looks? Are you kidding me? Shes always been considered beautiful

She used that very instrument to make her mark in the industry and is how crying foul about it... don't act about it babes .. u went all out to woo sajid Salman and every other prominent celeb to get ahead in the game!!!

Jacky was okay with everything Sajid did because she was desperate to get into the film industry. She is a below average actress and she knows the only way to get into films is by using her skin color, exposing and being a part of satisfying film makers. She is continuing to do the same with Salman now because Salman has a thing for foreign girls

salman has a thing for "foreign" girls? more like WHITE girls. the day he tries to launch a black or asian woman is when we can say he has a thing for "foreign" girls. He's just a white skin worshipper like the rest of bollywood and india.

He launched Daisy and Sneha Ullah and they are Asian looking.

Wasn't she with sajid khan for the longest time? Is that the household she means?
