Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan are basking in the success of their latest released Sui Dhaaga. This afternoon, the makers held a success meet where they had a Q&A with media. During the conversation, the actors were asked about their stand on Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar sexual harassment. While answering, Varun happened to say, “The biggest thing is that it happened in 2008 and we are talking about it in 2018, that's I hink not a good sign for anyone." Anushka corrected him in a forthright manner. She said, "Don't question those things that why s it happening so late.. it is not right! If Justice is not served, it can happen anytime."

Let us tell you what Anushka said in verbatim:

I think Varun has already spoken about his stand over it. I will tell you something, not just as a woman but as an individual as well, your work space should be the safest environment you are in after your house. You should not feel threatened or in danger while performing your duties whatever profession you might be in. You have to feel safe. So, yes, it is very frightening to know the details that have come out and let me also add that for Tanushree Dutta to speak up about this is not easy. It takes a lot of courage to come out there and speak on these things knowing the kind who have been against you, when you come out and speak.

“It is our responsibility collectively to just respect the woman when she is speaking, to hear her out and to not get into value judgement and character analysis. I do understand that it is a legal matter and that the truth will come out eventually and that's fine but if someone comes out and speaks about it, the least we can do is listen to them. I do hope that this incident encourages women to come out and speak about it as it is not like this doesn't happen and it is not like this doesn't happen everywhere. I think it will be nice if a safe environment for women is created.

Wow! Well said, Anushka. We like!
