She added, “Like I said, I am all for women who want to speak up, who want to share their stories. And if there is any truth to it and if anybody is at fault, then I am the kind of person who would say they need to be punished for it. It is really sad what has happened to somebody that I know.

Talking about Tanushree Dutta’s allegations against Nana Patekar with DNA, Malaika had said, “I’ve been following Tanushree’s case. What makes me sad is that people, and even the media, have been highly irresponsible as far as this incident is concerned. These are times where you should have a united front. I didn’t like the fact that many of them were questioning her about why she spoke 10 years later. How does it matter whether she spoke then or now? The fact that she’s speaking up should be respected”.
