Former Miss India and Bollywood actor Tanushree Dutta has alleged that she was harassed ten years ago by fellow actor Nana Patekar during the shooting of a movie titled Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss. In an interview with Zoom TV , Dutta claimed that the industry knew about the incident, however, they chose to stay mum about it. “Everyone knows about Nana Patekar that he has always been disrespectful towards women. People in the industry know that he has beaten actresses, he has molested them. His behaviour with women has always been crude but no publication has printed anything about it,” she said. Watch the interview here:

Bollywood by and large has kept silent on the issue, but many from the industry such as Rucha Chadha, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra and Twinkle Khanna have expressed their support to Dutta.

Many popular comedians also took a stand on the issue and wondered why Bollywood stars are not speaking out about the issue. Here are some of the many posts supporting Dutta.
