DEepika and Ranveer were at the 16th Hindustan Times leadership summit in New Delhi “I see it as beyond gender,” Ranveer said, emphasising that “harassment, whether it is in the workplace or on the street, is wrong.”

Without mentioning the recent case and issue of Nana and Tanushree, Ranveer said “Right now something has happened, and if it has happened, it takes a lot of courage to speak about it. Therefore we must listen to the person.”

He said that the situation is ‘inconclusive’ at the moment, “so we’re just speculating. but if it has happened, it’s wrong, and I condemn it emphatically.”

Deepika agreed with him, and said, “For me, the Me Too movement is not about gender. It’s about the victory of right over wrong. So anyone who faces any sort of discrimination or any sort of abuse, I think we as a people must support that person. It’s not about a woman or a man or female vs male, let’s not get confused in that conversation.”

Deepika had said in an earlier interview to Evening Standard that she was told to get a boob job when she was starting out in Bollywood. “There were lots of things I was advised (to do),” she said. “To get a boob job, do the beauty pageants. They felt it was the right way to be recognised or picked up by a Bollywood director or producer. It might be an easier way to achieve what you want to achieve. But I haven’t been that person; I’ve always followed my gut.”
