What sexual harassment? Nana Patekar asks on Tanushree`s #MeToo

Adjust Comment Print

Tanushree's allegations of sexual harassment in Bollywood and the mysterious silence adopted of some of the industry's big names sum up their attitude towards women's dignity in general. At that time I didn't even know everything that had happened, and so I wondered why he would say something like that.

Meanwhile, according to news agency ANI, Nana Patekar will be sending a legal notice to Tanushree Dutta demanding an apology from her.

When asked to comment on Nana's denial of causing any sort of harassment to her on the sets of Horn Ok Please, Tanushree said, "I don't even consider him worth commenting on. He told the choreographers to stay away and began teaching me the dance steps", she told India Today Television.

Twitterati is now very adamant that Bollywood takes a stand on the sexual harassment that some of the actresses have alleged that they have gone through. Earlier, Nana told Mirror Now, "We were on the set and there were 200 people sitting in front of us. You tell me", and contemplated taking legal action.

Bollywood star Nana Patekar, who plays the role of a policeman, poses for photographers during a media gathering to speak about his role in the Indian movie "Ab Tak Chhappan" (56 Until Now), in Mumbai, India March 3, 2004. "Her courage should be admired, not her intention questioned", he posted.

Taking to Twitter earlier this Friday morning Twinkle Khanna actor turned author tweeted about that before judging or shaming Tanushree Dutta a working environment without harassment and intimidation is a fundamental right and by speaking up this courageous woman helps pave the way towards that very goal for all of the superstars. "Some humanity will rise and they will say or do something about it".

"Agreed. The world needs to #BelieveSurviviors", Priyanka commented on Farhan's post Friday. To be alone, questioned.

Even as actors like Priyanka, Farhan, Swara and Richa openly acknowledged the need for an investigation into the molestation bid, Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan maintained a stoic distance from this matter.

Salman said, "I am not aware of this". She also added that it is up to us all to stand together and to not accuse the victims for they will fear to come forward. We will see what is going on. No woman wants the publicity that opens the floodgates of trolling and insensitivity.

Tanushree revealed that when she was shooting for a solo dance sequence, Nana was "lurking" on the sets for no reason.

On her part, the former beauty queen has said her voice was suppressed back then by Nana's powerful position. "A great actor but possibly the most spineless, hypocrite in recent times!"
