After staying away from the limelight for almost 10 years, ex-miss India Tanushree Dutta is back in India and has cried ‘sexual harassment’ by Nana Patekar on the sets of ‘Horn OK Please’.
Speaking about the harassment to the media, Tanushree has said that she was made to feel uncomfortable on the sets. With her recent statements, Tanushree joins the #MeToo movement. The #MeToo campaign is about all the women who have been harassed sexually or faced similar incidents to come and speak about their agony.
Tanushree Dutta in a TV interview said that although she had been away from the country for two years, it was difficult for her to find a job as the employers were unhappy with the reports filed against her. She said that Google searches on her spoke ill about her.
The actress said that she spoke about her harassment by Nana Patekar on the sets of a film even before but no one heard her ordeal.
Not just her but her father, her hairdresser and the spotboy were continuously harassed by the police as they were called upon every month for interrogation.
The actress aslo accused producer Vivek Agnihotri of misconduct. She added that Irrfan Khan and Suniel Shetty came for her support.
Many B-town celebs have come out and supported the actress. Dutta who is now back to India after living in the U.S. for two years has taken up a stand against the injustice done to her.
Please read this thread before judging or shaming #TanushreeDutta a working environment without harassment and intimidation is a fundamental right and by speaking up this brave woman helps pave the way towards that very goal for all of us! https://t.co/f8Nj9YWRvE

It hurts to be #TanushreeDutta rn. To be alone, questioned. No woman wants publicity that opens the floodgates of trolling and insensitivity.What happened to her on set was intimidation.Her only fault was she didn’t back down-takes a special courage to be #TanushreeDutta.

This thread is very telling. @janiceseq85 was there at the time of the incident being debated today. Even when #TanushreeDutta had career concerns to keep quiet 10 years ago she did not & her story hasn’t changed now. Her courage should be admired, not her intention questioned. https://t.co/Ola3MNdmtS
