Other women working in their workspace came up with their harrassment stories and experiences soon after the surfacing of the Tanushree harassment case. However, many people accused her of attracting attention by doing so in the house of Bigg Boss. It may be possible that she was accused because of disclosing such a material information after 10 years.
While being in a conversation with indianexpress.com, Richa Chadha said, “We all have to look within ourselves and figure out how is it that we normalised the culture that women didn’t feel safe to come forward and report any kind of verbal or physical assault. We all have to answer that. A person can be a nice guy but there might be a side to him which we do not know about. All of us are complicit in this space.”

She also added, “We all need to go back to the drawing board and check where did we go wrong and correct it from there on otherwise it is not going to change. I can give you some false advice on how this will be beneficial but it’s not going to change until there is a drastic reframing of our culture. We all need to be in this together. If you see someone in your fraternity calling a victim and saying she wants attention or wants an entry in Bigg Boss, you need to call them out too.”
Richa said, “Today people have come out against harassment and sexism at the workplace in comedy, that is the real shocker for me because these are the men who are making feminist jokes and riding the wave of feminism. But what are they really doing behind the closed doors?” when apalled with the reports reports of harassment by the comedians.
The actress concluded by saying, “So, we need to evaluate this doublespeak that happens from politicians, judges, media persons and actors. It has to stop and it will stop if all of us come together.”
