Almost after a year the #MeToo movement upended Hollywood, it arrived in India recently with a number of women accusing men of sexual misconduct and harassment. It has taken the entertainment industry by storm with the likes of Tanushree Dutta, Sandhya Mridul, Vinta Nanda opening up about harassement they suffered at the hands of men.

Many from the industry, including Farhan Akhtar, Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and Taapsee Pannu have voiced their support for the ongoing movement.

Here's what they said:

Ajay Devgn: I'm disturbed by all the happenings with regards to #MeToo. My company and I believe in providing women with utmost respect and safety. If anyone has wronged even a single woman, neither ADF nor I will stand for it.

Farhan Akhtar: I cannot adequately stress how shocked, disappointed and heartbroken I am to read the stories about Sajid's behaviour. I don't know how but he will have to find a way to atone for his alleged actions.

Taapsee Pannu: More than the names it's the description of the way things happened is what is disturbing me the most. Makes me have this terrible feeling that we have discovered only the tip of this iceberg. #Metoo

Emraan Hashmi: Sexual harassment cannot and should not be tolerated anymore.

Earlier in the day, director Sajid Khan stepped down as the director of upcoming film 'Housefull 4' after three women accused him of sexual harassment. (ANI)
