Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta has recently breaking the headlines as she recently accused Bollywood actor Nana Patekar of assaulting her on the sets of Horn OK Please. While, many have comes out in support of Tanushree.
Not only Nana, but Tanushree has also accused director Vivek Agnihotri of inappropriate behaviour while shooting for Chocolate: Deep Dark Secrets adding that Irrfan Khan and Suniel Shetty stood up for her.
Well now, the actress has received a legal notice from Nana Patekar and Vivek Agnihotri. Tanushree said on Wednesday that she has been slapped with notices as she spoke out against them.
Tanushree confirmed the news and said, “I have been slapped with two legal notices today. One from Nana Patekar and another from Vivek Agnihotri. This is the price you pay for speaking out against harassment, humiliation and injustice in India. Both Nana’s and Vivek Agnihotri’s teams are on a smear campaign against me by constructing outright lies and misinformation on social media platforms and other public platforms. Their supporters are coming ahead and weaving damming allegations against me even shouting at the top of their voices at press conferences.”
She also alleged that two people tried to barge into her house, “Today while I was at home and the police personnel posted outside my home were on a lunch break two unnamed suspicious individuals tried getting into our home uninvited but were stopped just in time by security personnel in the building. Later the police came back from their break and secured the premises again. Violent threats are being issued against me by the MNS party.”
Calling out the Indian judicial system, she said “’Tareek pe Tareek pe tareek’ and the dawn of justice never arrives and her whole life goes waste awaiting justice while witnesses are intimidated,discredited or simply drained of their will to stand up..False witnesses supporting perpetrators conjured up to furthur weaken her case.Court cases can run for decades without a hope for a conclusion.At the end an empty shell remains,broken hopes,A life wasted,defeated.This is the age old saga of survivors in our nation.”
Tanushree added that these are the reasons why women will not come out and tell their stories in India: “I walked away once from the same environment that was created for me 10 years ago..Found God ,found my healing,found my peace and a new life in United States of America. And now I stand to lose this new life too if I allow myself to get embroiled in the court system of India. And you wanted to know why the me too movement hasn’t happened in India…This is why…”
