Women in India have found their voice after remaining silent for decades, as the #MeToo movement is currently at its peak. Over the last one month, women from different walks of life have spoken against their perpetrators, while others have also strongly come out in support of the victims. Accusations have been put against many renowned names including Nana Patekar, Chetan Bhagat, Vikas Behl, Alok Nath, Kailash Kher, MJ Akbar to name a few. Joining the list of offenders is veteran journalist Vinod Dua, father of popular comedian Mallika Dua. Vinod Dua has been named in the #MeToo campaign by documentary filmmaker Nishtha Jain.

The filmmaker has alleged that Vinod Dua sexually harassed her almost three decades ago. Let us tell you that Mallika Dua is known for speaking up against injustice against women and she has been supporting the victims of #MeToo ever since the social media saw the movement getting momentum. Mallika has been sharing stories of women and tweeted about them expressing her support for the movement.

On the other hand, Nishtha Jain had talked about how Vinod Dua lashed out against Akshay Kumar some time back when her daughter was attacked.

“When I read about his outrage against Akshay Kumar’s sexist words to his daughter Mallika Dua, I said to myself he’s obviously forgotten that he was no less sexist, no less misogynist, no less creepy a sexual harasser, potential rapist. If he did to me, I’m sure he would have done it to other women. Today, he does programmes explaining (to) the world what constitutes sexual harassment. He should stop everything and look into his own shady past.”
