Ever since Tanushree Dutta alleged that Nana Patekar had sexually harassed her on the sets of a film ‘Horn OK Pleasss’ in 2008, many celebrities have extended their support to the actress, while some have chosen to keep their distance. She had talked about the incident a decade back, but it wasn’t given much importance then. After a media channel talked to Tanushree about her ordeal, it resurfaced and now celebrities are reacting to it. At the trailer launch of his upcoming film Thugs of Hindostan, Amitabh Bachchan was asked about the ongoing controversy.
He responded saying that since he was neither Tanushree nor Nana, he would be unable to remark on it. Tanushree has expressed her disappointment at the veteran actor’s response. Tanushree said, “I am hurt, as these are people who do movies on social causes. They play roles in films and the audience applauds. But when it comes to standing up and doing something about what is happening in front of you, there are these evasive statements that don’t make sense.”
At the trailer launch, Bachchan’s co-star Aamir Khan was also asked about his views regarding the controversy to which he had said that without being aware of the truth of a situation, it would not be correct on his part to comment on the same.
