Aashiq Banaya Aapne actress Tanushree Dutta is making a lot of headlines these days as she has come out in the open and has accused actor Nana Patekar of misbehaving and harassment. The incident dates back to 2008 when Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss was in making. The actress has been anything but shy, when she opened up about the controversy.
Before we proceed any further, take a look at what she had to say about the same,
“The entire industry saw what happened but there was not one word of condemnation from anybody. Every single person in this country remembers my incident and this was something on national TV for three days but even today there’s a stoic silence on that. So, my question is, ‘Who is going to believe these hypocrites?’ These are the people who stand up and raise their voice against women empowerment.”
Just when we thought that all is out in the open, the Chocolate actress has made another shocking allegation. And this time she has opened up about the director of the film, Chocolate: Deep Dark Secrets, and you will be shocked to read what she had to say!
In a recent interview with DNA, the actress said:
“This guy (Vivek Agnihotri) wanted me to give cues to an actor (Irrfan Khan). It was an actor’s close-up. It was not even my shot. I was not even going to be in the shot. It was the actor’s close-up and he had to just look at something and give expressions. This director, he told me jao jaake kapde utaar ke naacho, usko cues do.”
She further stated,
“The male actor had to shoot back at the director saying, ‘I don’t need her to take off her coat and dance for me to give facial expressions. This was Irrfan Khan. I really appreciated that he actually spoke up like that because it was his close-up shot. I’m not in the frame. He had to look at me and give some expressions. Why do I have to dance in front of him for him to give expressions on his close-up shot. This director tells me ‘jao jaake kapde utaar ke naacho’. I was shocked!”
“The actor was horrified. And, because he had done some work, he could say something. He just told the director, ‘What are you talking about? I can give my closeup. Mujhe acting aati hai’. Suneil Shetty also spoke up. He was also there, he heard it and he got offended by it. He was like, ‘Main aayun kya wahaan cues dene ke liye?’ Yeah of course, there are good people in the industry. Both, Irrfan Khan and Suniel Shetty spoke up. Suneil scolded that guy.”
It’s really commendable how Irrfan Khan and Suneil Shetty stood up for Tanushree. Speaking about the actress, it’s not easy to come out in the open to address such issues, kudos to her courage!
