Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar row


The Tanushree Dutta- Nana Patekar row is ablaze, with every new input making it to the headlines. 

Tanushree accused Nana Patekar of harassment on the sets of 2008 film Horn Ok Pleasss, and alleged that filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri had misbehaved with her too. 

The actress had raised the issue 10 years back as well, but only this time is it getting the due attention. Several Bollywood celebrities too have commented on the accusations made by Tanushree.

While some have supported her, others have chose to walk the diplomatic way, while some others are keeping mum.

Several other bollywood celebrities too, including Kangana Ranaut, Farhan Akhtar, Hansal Mehta, Priyanka Chopra, Varun Dhawan and Sonam Kapoor have supported Tanushree for speaking out and creating a #MeToo movement in Bollywood.

Joining the list of names are Neha Dhupia, Soha Ali Khan and Sophie Choudry

The terrific were supportive of Tanushree and in fact encouraged other women who have experienced something of this sort, to come out and speak about it. 

The three spoke about this at the launch of the third season of Neha Dhupia's show #NoFilterNeha

Neha Dhupia, in fact went on to say that she doesn't understand why people are questioning the victims. She said that "there is no need to question, we have to believe them."

She also said that now the "real clean-up will happen."


Soha Ali Khan too spoke on similar lines. The actress said that it takes a lot of courage to come up and say all this so we must be supportive. She also hopes that perpetrators face cosequences. 

Sophie Choudry, on the other hand, gave the example of Mamta Kulkarni, who was alienated after she spoke against the wrong done to her. She also said that asking someone 'why after 10 year?' accounts to a negative focus. "We need to encourage people," she said. 

In the latest development in the case, Tanushree Dutta has received two lawsuits from Nana Patekar and Vivek Agnihotri. 

Later, when Nana Patekar called allegations of sexual harassment levelled against him by Tanushree Dutta ‘a lie’, a written complaint was filed by the actress with the Mumbai Police in connection with the incident.
