Recently, South actress Shalu Shamu also joined the movement as she decided to come out and share her story to the whole world.

In 2018, the MeToo movement strengthened in the Indian entertainment industry. Lots of big names faced allegations of sexual harassment and rape such as Rajkummar Hirani, Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Subhash Ghai, Vikas Bahl, Kailash Kher, Rajat Kapoor, and many others.

However, some of them including director Vikas Bahl and actor Alok Nath have been given a clean chit by the authorities. Notably, Bollywood music director Anu Malik, who received accusations of sexual misconduct to some singers and actresses, will be soon coming back to Indian Idol.
