With #MeToo movement gaining momentum with each passing day, it’s now former tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi and his actress wife Lara Dutta who came out in support of sexual harassment survivors. They urged everyone to not work with people who have been accused in the on-going #MeToo movement. Mahesh had written talking about Mukesh Chabbra who was accused of sexual misconduct. 

Lauding his wife Lara Dutta for her wise decision, Bhupathi wrote, “Two days ago my wife, who's shooting out of town, got an offer from a leading international digital platform through Mukesh Chhabra's company. She forwarded it to me for my feedback. I asked if she really wanted to empower his company even after what's been in the news. Her reaction was that the digital platform hadn't really pulled back business from him either. Later, Lara got in touch with the digital platform and told them she wouldn't accept work through this company specifically. I think she did the right thing. I am not sure it's enough though.”

Mukesh Chhabra has currently been suspended from the film Kizie Aur Manny amidst sexual harassment allegations and it was Lara’s firm decision to step aside from an assignment being handled by his firm. Mahesh Bhupathi even shared his long note on his social media handle where he wrote, “#stopengaging . Everyone seems to be horrified about the #metoo stories but why is no one saying anything?#useyourvoice #timesu p #CleanUp”


Applauding Mahesh and Lara, Bollywood actress Dia Mirza wrote on her Twitter handle, “I feel so proud to call you a friend @Maheshbhupathi. This is how things will truly change. #StopEngaging #TimesUp #MeToo #CleanUp #UseYourVoice”

Mahesh wrote that he was guilty of remaining silent until now. Talking about Suhel Seth, who has been accused by multiple women of sexual harassment, he said, “every famous and powerful person in the country, yet no one has felt the need to say anything about his behaviour. People in the know tell me the reason for this.”

He closed it saying, “To all those who are in a position of influence through their massive social platforms, I have a simple appeal. Stop engaging. Alienate these “serial predators”. Show them that while the law and investigative agencies will take their course, society should– and will– reject them. The stance needs to crystal clear– guilty unless proven innocent.”
