In the wake of the ongoing #MeToo campaign, Parineeti Chopra has called on other victims to come out in open about their stories. While speaking to ANI, the actor passed on a message to the people who are still scared of speaking out, saying the time has come to do the same. "We are surrounded by people who will support us. If you fail to speak up now, you will have to live with it forever," said the 29-year-old. She further stressed, "The thing worse than this would be to not be able to punish those men who have done them wrong. They will just be living a normal life and will get more freedom to do the same to someone else as well."
