Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra opened up on what it’s like to see an increasing number of women speaking about sexual harassment in Bollywood and Hollywood.
She spoke about the MeToo movement at the 2019 Women in World Summit in New York on Saturday.
Everybody in this room has probably faced one because it had become a norm with women, she said.
“We always had a voice. Just nobody heard us. Now because of the support we are giving each other, people don’t have the power to shut us down. And that’s an incredibly powerful thing to see. Now if I have a story I don’t feel I’m alone anymore – and I’m not ashamed of it”, she remarked.
Priyanka took to Instagram to share a picture of herself at the event as well.
Last year, many prominent names like Nana Patekar, Sajid Khan, Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl and many others got embroiled in the Me Too controversy which further encouraged many women from the industry to come out with their story.
