The Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar controversy is not gonna stop as Tanushree is unfolding many secrets that were inside the closet for a decade. She had accused Nana Patekar of harassing her and intimidating her on sets of ‘Horn Ok Pleasss’ (2008). The actress also took the name of choreographer Ganesh Acharya, producer Sami Siddiqui, director Rakesh Sarang who didn’t stand by the actress. Yesterday, during the trailer launch of ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan’s reacted to the controversy. When Salman Khan was asked to comment on it, he said, “I am not aware of this. Let me know and understand what is happening. I have been here and I am sure that the legal team will handle that. We will see what is going on. I am not aware of it.”
Meanwhile, Bollywood celebs like Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Parineeti Chopra, Swara Bhasker, Richa Chadha have come out in support of Tanushree. Farhan Akhtar tweeted, “Her courage should be admired, not her intention questioned.” This was Farhan’s reply to a thread on Twitter posted by journalist Janice Sequeira. Priyanka retweeted Farhan Akhtar’s post and said, “Agreed..the world needs to #BelieveSurviviors.” Twinkle Khanna too tweeted, “Please read this thread before judging or shaming #TanushreeDutta a working environment without harassment and intimidation is a fundamental right and by speaking up this brave woman helps pave the way towards that very goal for all of us!”
Here are the tweets.
This thread is very telling. @janiceseq85 was there at the time of the incident being debated today. Even when #TanushreeDutta had career concerns to keep quiet 10 years ago she did not & her story hasn’t changed now. Her courage should be admired, not her intention questioned. https://t.co/Ola3MNdmtS

In an interaction with Mirror Now, Nana Patekar said, “What can I say why she is saying it? How do I know why she is saying this? What does she mean by sexual harassment? There were 50-100 people on the set with me.” He even said that he might take legal action against the actress.
