After doing ‘Ashiq Banaya Aapne’, how can she allege molestation charges against Nana Patekar? Such are the responses Actress Tanushree Dutta received after she accused the actor of harassment. And now, Tanushree Dutta alleges threat by the MNS. Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut has also come in support of Nana Patekar and said that his words need to be listened to.
When a woman is already battling a fight against molestation, then she is forced to face a dangerous ideology. Actress Tanushree Dutta alleged that Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena threatened her to drop her allegations against Nana Patekar. In a recent statement, she said,
“MNS is not just a party but an ideology like Al-Qaeda or ISIS… they are a violent disruptive communal, intolerant ideology and anyone from any profession can pledge allegiance to it”.
In an interview to a publication, she alleged that the political party has threatened her with “violent attack”. The 34-year-old actress added that the alleged threat is an addition to the others she’s received at the behest of Nana Patekar, who she recently accused of having harassed her on the sets of 2008 film Horn ‘OK’ Pleassss. Nana Patekar tried to ‘cover up’ the attack with a ‘lie’ says Tanushree. Meanwhile, MNS has denied that the party attacked her in 2008.

Instead of listening to the allegations and proper investigation, a woman is questioned! And if she comes against a popular man then there is a risk to her career. Especially in film industry, an actress gathers no support and faces the wrath. In the recent case also only a handful of names voiced against the root cause. Bollywood needs to come forward and take a strong stand against sexual harassment and threats.
