Many celebrities have shown their support to the Me Too movement that started in India last month. Because of this movement, many women came forward and called out the names of men who are sexual predators. From the film industry, so far names like Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Subhash Ghai, Vikas Bahl, Rajat Kapoor, Kailash Kher, Anu Malik and Chetan Bhagat have been called out by different women. In an interview with IANS, actress Huma Qureshi said that #MeToo movement is the most relevant movement in recent times.

"I think #MeToo is the most relevant movement that has happened in recent times in India as far as women are concerned. And I think it is amazing, but heartbreaking to hear stories about stuff that women -- and supposedly powerful and successful women -- go through every single day," said the actress. She also talked about how Lady Gaga wasn't brave enough to share her story, but because of Me Too movement, women are mustering up the courage to speak up. Huma said, "Recently, I saw a picture of Lady Gaga where she wore a pantsuit. At the event, she spoke about the fact that she wanted to wear pants because she has been a victim of sexual assault and that she still doesn't have the guts to talk about it. Now that's something to think about."

She added, "I think there is something to take away from that, and I say, more power to all the women who are choosing to talk about it. It's very brave and I think we must really get up and listen to them because we are not listening to them."
