THIS Journalist Revealed The Entire TRUTH Of Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar Controversy

After accusing Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of Horn OK Please in 2008, Tanushree Dutta dropped yet another bomb by saying that film-maker Vivek Agnihotri asked her to strip and dance on the sets of Chocolate in 2005 and demanded her to give cues to the other actors.

Responding to Tanushree's claim that Patekar does charity work as a cover for his alleged "terrible behavior", the veteran actor said, "People can say whatever they want to say, I will keep doing my work".

Aamir said it would not be right for him to comment, but "whenever something like this does happen it is really a sad thing". Bollywood Hungama quoted Tanushree Dutta that her follow actresses, her contemporaries and claimed that they pushed her to do plastic surgery like boob enhancement, among other things. As per the allegations made by her, Vivek Agnihotri told her, "Kapde utaar ke naach uske saamne' (Remove your clothes and dance in front of him)".

Her husband Akshay Kumar is shooting with Nana for "Housefull 4" now, but Twinkle Khanna still 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 courageous woman helps pave the way towards that very goal for all of us!" We were on set and we were all watching the rehearsals and at one point, I could clearly see that Tanushree was uncomfortable about a certain step or a way a certain step was being rehearsed.

She added further: "A lot of people are asking me how do you know if Tanushree was uncomfortable?"

Sequeira said: "The chat I had with Dutta hours after the incident was identical to the account she's come out with now. So believe them, respect them", she wrote. "Her courage should be admired, not her intention questioned".

Director Anurag Kashyap also cited Janice's tweets as confirmation of Tanushree's allegations.

Although they achieved their stardom through cinema, they've become icons to crores of people across the global for taking up humanitarian causes affecting society in real life.

Priyanka replied to Farhan's tweet, "Agreed.the world needs to #BelieveSurviviors".

Asked about the issue that was trending on social media and was the subject of many discussions all over, Bollywood stars Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan evaded a direct answer. "I'm not aware of this, my dear". To be alone, questioned. I have been here and I am sure that the legal team will handle that. "Suniel scolded that guy".

She tweeted, "It hurts to be #TanushreeDutta rn".

On her part, the former beauty queen has said her voice was suppressed back then by Nana's powerful position.

She said she had seen how the actress was visibly upset about something on the sets while Nana, choreographer Ganesh Acharya and the producer huddled around.

After the Bollywood broke their silence in support of the artist, many took to twitter and appreciate the courageous and audacious move to support naming and shaming of wrong-doer.
