Former Miss India Tanushree Dutta is back to the USA but little did she know that her vacation in India will spearhead the #MeToo movement. It all started with Tanushree Dutta renewing a decade-old sexual harassment case against Nana Patekar that took place on the sets of 2008-film Horn Ok Please. Post Tanushree, a lot of women mustered the courage to come out in the open and call out their sexual predators. After Nana, names of Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl, Anu Malik, and Kailash Kher among have come under the scanner.

But what is noteworthy is that B-town celebs supported the movement on social media and encouraged all the accusers to name and shame their sexual predators. Besides Priyanka Chopra, Twinkle Khanna, Kriti Sanon, Varun Dhawan, and others speaking up in favor of the Me Too campaign, Madhuri Dixit too expressed a sense of shock and disbelief over the names that have been accused of sexual harassment. Since this Dil Toh Pagal Hai actress has worked with Alok Nath and Soumik Sen, she was doubly shocked after knowing that they have been accused of sexual harassment. While talking to PTI, Madhuri said, “It is always shocking. Because you’ve known them and you’ve not known them like that. It is always shocking when something like that comes out. What you’ve known them and what you’re reading is two different people. It was so shocking.”  While Alok Nath was accused of rape by writer-producer Vinta Nanda, Soumik Sen was also accused of alleged sexual misconduct by three women.

Madhuri Dixit was doubly shocked because she has worked and shared screen space with Alok Nath in Hum Aapke Hai Koun and Soumik Sen was the director of Gulaab Gang. On the work front, Madhuri is currently gearing up for her latest film Total Dhamaal and the makers of the film recently released a song from the film. After Total Dhamaal, Madhuri will be seen in Abhishek Varman’s Kalank co-starring Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, and Aditya Roy Kapur.

Total Dhamaal is directed by Indra Kumar and the film stars Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, and Boman Irani in lead roles. The film is slated to release on February 22, 2019.

MD is always diplomatic. Her second innings has been a damp squib. if she takes sides, then even these pittance roles wont come to her .

Shut up and be diplomatic like always ! Anyways no one cares what you think. Your time is over.

You wish her time was over. Lol. It's second innings for boss Madhuri. Meanwhile Manikarnika is a flop and no amount of ranting can change that.

Yet she still attended his birthday party in January

She always attended them. Clearly no bad blood between them.

Madhurijee: Why didnt you open up, b ebold about your me too and say anything about Subhash Ghai jee?

Maybe there's nothing to say. Maybe she's not usurping the role of a judge, because it's not right?
