Anushka, Varun appeal for safe working environment for women actors

Probashbangla24 online Desk :At the Sui Dhaaga success press conference in Mumbai on Friday, actors Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan were asked about the sexual harassment allegations that Tanushree Dutta has levied against her Horn Ok Pleassss co-star Nana Patekar.

Both Anushka and Varun extended their support to Tanushree, stating that every individual should stand up for themselves and that working environment should be safe for all.

Anushka said, Not just as a woman but as an individual, your workplace has to be the safest environment after your home. You shouldnt feel threatened or in danger while performing your duties, whatever profession you might be. Its very frightening to know the details that have come out. For Tanushree Dutta to speak up about this takes a lot of courage to come out there and say these things.

Knowing the tide that will be against her. Thats the reason why a lot of people dont speak. But the fact that shes coming out and speaking about it, its our collective duty to just respect the woman, and hear what she is speaking. Hear her out and to not get into judgements, character analysis and all those sort of things that happen. I understand its a legal matter and the truth will come out, and its fine. But if someone is choosing to come out and speak up, the least you can do is listen to them and be respectful about it, Anushka added.

The Pari actor then also hoped that this incident encourages more women to speak up. She said, I hope that this will encourage women to come out and speak about all the things which happen to them. And its not as if this does not happen everywhere. It will be nice if an atmosphere is created where women will feel safe to come out and speak up.

Varun Dhawan, on the other hand, expressed quite passionately that if something like this happened on the set of his film, he would personally prevent it. He said, If anything like this happens on my film set, Ill personally make sure Ill prevent it. You cannot let violence take over. Law and order should take its course and investigate the matter. You cannot post her pictures in (certain) clothes just to taint her image. Just dont do that. A lot of people in the media are doing that. Lets all be collectively responsible for something like this. When something like this happens, its the environment that is to blamed, not a particular person. Environment breeds people to do the wrong thing. It happened in 2008 and we are reacting to it in 2018. Its not a good sign.

Anushka added to what Varun had to say. She said, We should stop questioning why is this happening so late. Thats also not right. If justice hasnt been served, it can happen anytime. Lets get to the conclusion of the matter, enough talk about it. The law needs to step in. Ill give my opinion, someone else will give theirs, but its time the law steps in.
