One of the pioneers of the #MeToo movement in Hollywood and one of the first to come forward with their accusations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, Rose McGowan, in a Twitter support extended her support to Meesha.

Sharing the link to a local media outlet, McGowan, wrote, ” A heroine for our times. I stand with Meesha Shafi.”

Meesha thanked the actor for her support by sharing a screenshot of the tweet on her social media.
