The Me Too campaign has gained momentum in India with several actresses coming out in the open and calling out their sexual predators.

When Kangana was asked about her stance on Rani Mukherjee's controversial comment on the #MeToo movement, Kangana said that every woman should be empowered and that we should not discourage strong women.

Kangana said, "People who need support, who need to be empowered, we must empower but if our society can produce a woman like Rani Laxmi Bai, then why not, they must not be discouraged."

"If they are strong women, we should not discourage women. I was 16-years-old when I filed my first FIR against sexual assault so there are people who can stand up for themselves, they shouldn’t be discouraged."

Further, Kangana was asked about children who are not empowered and she said, “Empowerment who need, they should be empowered but not necessarily everyone needs. Some people can give empowerment also. Some people are givers, the ones who can be encouraged to give strength, people who are working with NGOs.”

Recently Rani Mukerji was trolled by netizens when her comments on the #MeToo movement did not go down well with the audience.

She was along with Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Tabu, Taapsee Pannu and Anushka Sharma, was present at Rajeev Masand's actresses roundtable chat.

When they were asked about the Me Too movement, Rani said, "I think as a woman you have to be that power 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. You have to take responsibility for your own self."
