India's Me Too, after a long wait, has finally arrived. It all started when Tanushree Dutta came forward and shared her ordeal in front of the whole country. She said that Nana Patekar harassed on the sets of Horn Ok Pleasss. Post her statement, women have gathered the courage to speak up and narrate their incidents out in open. She has accused him of harassing her while shooting for a special dance number in the movie and also stated that ace Bollywood dance choreographer Ganesh Acharya teamed up with him against her.
 
Then, the social media was filled with women narrating their incidents and what they went through. All the stories are spine-chilling. India's Me Too has stormed the entire film industry as so many names have come under the radar. Names like of Rajat Kapoor, Vikas Bahl and Kailash Kher were brought up on the front. But, the most shocking revelation was that of Alok Nanda being accused of rape. Many celebs chose to speak up but some refrained commenting on it. When Amitabh Bachchan was asked about Tanushree's case, he chose NOT to comment on it. 
 
 
Now, daughter Shweta Bachchan has spoken about India's Me Too movement and she believes that movements like these don't need a big voice as it's more about women supporting women. She told ANI, "I am a women and of course I will support the the women who are coming out and speaking. I would them to have a safe environment of work and these stories are heart-breaking. I think movements like these - it's more about women supporting women. I don't think you need a big voice. I think these voices are enough and sometimes they take away the headlines. The women who have gone through it should be the headlines, nothing else." 
 
The #MeToo movement, which began as a hashtag on Twitter in 2017 amid the Weinstein incident, has now become a global phenomenon. Many well-known comedians, journalists and actors have been named and shamed on social media in the past few days as allegations of sexual misconduct against them.

I mean why do they even speak when they know they will be trolled like anything. I think it's because bad publicity is also publicity.

Wait why is she suddenly all over the place? Who really cares about her opinion. She had lived a privileged life and has never had to work for anything. Please take several seats.

YOur father is Billy Cosby of India.

But she needs big voices to launch her label, books, etc. Wow.

Talentless nepotism product Swetha, just STFU. The world knows that you’re dad was a philanderer and your mom still put up with him. Hypocrites like you will never talk about it

Bachchans will have the same end as Congress!

Damage control!

Oh Swetha, who grew up in Bombay with an American accent has something to say about #metoo .. Please, stop!!!

Just because her dad didn't answer ...she don't need big voice

Sure, big voices should be reserved for privileged women publishing books.
