Also, actress Kalki Koechlin has voiced her support for Tanushree. Kalki has also been a victim of sexual assault when she was a child and she has faced the same in the industry as well. The ‘Margarita with a Straw’ actress told ANI that talking about issues pertaining to sexual harassment is the need of the hour. She further said, “We still don’t know what are the rules at a workplace between men and women. It is good that after a controversy we ask questions, and only after asking questions everyone is educated about it.”
