A host of Bollywood starts stand behind actress Tanushree Dutta, who had recently created ripples among actors making shocking revelation on sexual exploitation in the film industry. Her exposures have stirred a storm in the industry.
In an interview, she accused of sexual harassment by popular star Nana Patekar, about 10-years ago on the sets of movie Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss. While top actors like Amitabh Bachchan refused to comment on her accusations, many stars like Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Twinkle Khanna and Swarna Bhaskar came out expressing solidarity to Tanushree.
Farhan took to micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, “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.
Priyanka shared her point of view. She re-tweeted Farhan’s tweet and mentioned, “Agreed..the world needs to #BelieveSurviviors.”
Twinkle Khanna tweeted, “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!”
