The MeToo wave opened a big debate about harassment of women in India. Many women showed the courage and came forward and described the heinous scenarios they encountered. And even in Bollywood many top celebs like Nana patekar, Alok Nath, Vikas Behal and many more where named and shamed in the MeToo movement.
Recently at the actress’ roundtable conference moderated by Rajeev Masand, Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, Alia Bhatt, Tabu, Rani Mukerji, and Tapsee Pannu made an appearance and spoke about issues including the impactful #MeToo movement that shook the industry.
Deepika, Anushka and Alia during the conference were in solidarity with the movement, Rani Mukerji had an opposing viewpoint. She stated that self-defense’ is necessary and so learning martial arts is important and it should become a part of the school schedule. She stated that it is important for girls to learn how to protect themselves.
Deepika opposed this by saying, “but why to even bring it to the point where girls should learn self-defense.” Anushka and Alia also agreed with Deepika.
Rani’s opinion has been ripped apart by the internet.
Take a look at some of the reactions below:

seeing Rani Mukherjee talk about #MeToo and then comparing it to what Deepika and Anushka said about the cause.. you can clearly see the difference between the two generations

#RaniMukerji was never relevant enough to be cancelled but seeing what she had to say abt #Metoo movement is truly appalling. The woman who has the biggest production house behind her rich entitled ass saying women should behave themselves? You’ve got to be kidding me!!! pic.twitter.com/RSN6jC5QNX

Deepika saying not everyone is constructed with the same DNA to have the courage to protect themselves is agreeable

Rani Mukherjee is that friend in group discussion round of placement who thinks speaking more will get more brownie points. https://t.co/56LkqRX6y2

Ok. So you can’t tell hundreds of mothers that they shouldn’t bring up misogynistic sons but you want to tell millions of girls out there to compulsorily learn martial arts and defend themselves? This is nothing but victim shaming and blaming.
Shame on you, Rani Mukerji! https://t.co/cfvn74fzPM

Rani Mukerji proved she’s Kajol’s cousin in the latest #Roundtable episode. So disappointed to see how stupid her views are
