Rani Mukherji gets slammed for her #MeToo comment


During a recent round table conversation with Rajeev Masand, actresses- Rani Mukerji, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Tabu, Taapsee Pannu, Anushka Sharma expressed their opinion on #MeToo. 

"There should be a little sense of fear. Your work place has to be the second sacred place for you. After your home your work place is the place where you should feel the safest and if you're not feeling that way then that's the worst world to be living in," Anushka added.

To which Rani said, "I think as a woman you have to be that powerful within yourself, you have to believe that you're so powerful that if you ever come into a situation like that you have the courage to say 'back off.' I think you have to have the courage to be able to protect yourself." 

Countering her statement, Deepika said, "I don't think everyone is constructed with that sort of DNA." 

Rani further said that martial arts and self-defence should be made compulsory in schools, adding that "you have to take the responsibility of your ownself."

"But why to even bring it to the point where girls should learn self-defence," Deepika said. Even, Anushka agreed to Deepika's point, however, Rani wasn't convinced. She later said, "You can’t tell mothers how to bring up their children." 

Netizens seem not quite impressed with Rani's take on #MeToo and she was heavily slammed on social media. Various negative comments against her were shared.
