Entire industry is an accomplice through silence: Tanushree Dutta on harassment

Balayya Heroine Shocking Allegations on Actor

Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta has called out actor Nana Patekar, saying he sexually harassed her during a film shoot. She further said that during the shoot of Horn Ok Please in 2008, she was not just pushed but also intimidated by Nana Patekar on the sets.

Further adding about this culture which prevails in the entire Bollywood, Tanushree quipped, "The entire industry saw what happened but there was not one word of condemnation from anybody". And the producers called up the media to gain publicity from the whole situation. The Bollywood beauty also claimed that numerous directors and the actors of the Indian film fraternity are equally obscene but no one dares to point them out because of the fear of losing roles and opportunities.

After actresses like Radhika Apte, Richa Chadda, Swara Bhasker, and Konkona Sen Sharma showed some support, now here is another actress who shared what happened with her. She says that she had been to the sets as a reporter on behalf of Aaj Tak to collect some behind the scenes stories and had encountered a visibly upset Tanushree, tensed choreographer and director in a heated up talk and halted shooting. In an interview with Zoom TV, Dutta accused senior actor Patekar of being habitually disrespectful towards women in the film industry.

Recounting her experience on the casting couch phenomenon in Bollywood, Tanushree said that the lead actress in any movie was decided by the male actor and not the casting director. They (film crew) were forcing me to do an intimate step. The actor also blamed him for beating and molesting women and female actors. The actress has given an interview to Zoom channel about the incident and named the actor.

She narrated an incident which resulted in her vehicle getting vandalised on the sets of the film Horn Ok Please. People with this kind of character speak like this against the kind of character that I have because they say she does glamourous roles so must be glamorous and all. Akshay Kumar has been consistently working with Nana Patekar for eight years.

Speaking about the #MeToo movement, she said, "The Me Too movement will never arrive in India because of the industry's hypocrisy". They will give some money to some poor farmers. "They will cast all the other actors in the films but the lead actress will be recommended by the lead actor".
