Kangana revealed that many A-listers targeted her in Bollywood.

The harassment ranged from 'ganging up' against her to dubbing her voice without consent.

"Not inviting me to film events, launching trailers without me and then someone else dubbed for me without even telling me, which is violating the basic right of taking permission from an actor," she said, recalling the humiliation.

#MeToo

Men are now scared of #MeToo, says Kangana

Bollywood's #MeToo unmasked several sexual predators. They know they will be held responsible for their actions.

And Kangana is quite happy with the way the movement shaped up.

"Men are scared in the industry. This isn't going to stop. This will continue till we really go into the root cause of it because essentially it's a patriarchal society which is extremely chauvinistic," Kangana said.

Solution

Immediate action is the need of the hour: Kangana

"Things can't be solved on a personal level or behind closed doors. Things should be taken to authority and immediate action is the need of the hour," Kangana concluded.
