Actress Tanushree Dutta has been away from films for quite a long time now. But she is again back in the headlines, but sadly, it was not for her work but for the harassment she faced in the entertainment industry. Now, the Tanushree Dutta controversy is all there in the media and the social media with differing opinions from different people. Tanushree Dutta made an entry into the world of glamour 15 years ago when she won the Femina Miss India pageant in 2003. She then went on to represent India at Miss Universe 2004 where she was one of the top 10 finalists.
Tanushree Dutta then took her plunge into Bollywood in 2005 with ‘Chocolate’ and ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’. ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’ did extremely well at the box office but Tanushree Dutta somehow ended up doing only a handful of films and then took herself away from Bollywood. A few days ago, she accused veteran actor Nana Patekar of harassing her on the sets of Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss in 2008.
Now, the Tanushree Dutta controversy has caught fire once again. The actress has said that everybody saw what happened with her but there was not one word of condemnation from anybody. Despite the whole controversy being shown on the national television for three days, there is a stoic silence on it even today. She went on to call the people from the industry “hypocrites”.
The actress also revealed that she got 30-40 films offers after the controversy but she suffered from such a major trauma that she did not even want to go on a film set.
Tanushree Dutta’s accusations on #MeToo were not limited to Nana Patekar. She even alleged that filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri asked her to strip and dance and at that time, she was rescued by Suniel Shetty and Irrfan Khan.
The Tanushree Dutta controversy has created a major buzz in the media as well as in the entertainment industry of India. In fact, her allegations have more or less left Bollywood divided into two segments- one that supports Tanushree Dutta and the other one that favors Nana Patekar. At the same time, there are a few actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan who have sort of cornered themselves by making safe statements on the whole controversy.
Meanwhile, choreographer and filmmaker Farah Khan became the target of trolls for being with Nana Patekar despite Tanushree Dutta’s allegations against him. Farah Khan recently shared a picture with Nana Patekar in which she can be seen heading towards Jaisalmer for the shoot of ‘Housefull 4’. Take a look at Farah Khan’s Instagram post here:
As Farah Khan shared this picture, netizens hardly took any time in interpreting that Farah Khan is standing up in Nana Patekar’s support and she ended up getting trolled big time. Take a look at some comments on Farah Khan’s picture with Nana Patekar here:
Do you think this post by Farah Khan means that she supports Nana Patekar who has been called a molester by Tanushree Dutta?
