Tanushree Dutta controversy: Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor lend their support

After making a shocking revelation about her harassment case and accusing Nana Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya and others for harassment case, actress Tanushree Dutta brought the entire industry to a standstill. Where on one hand, few are supporting the actress in her choice, there are others who are denying it upfront. But it looks like many celebrities are standing tall with her and bringing the light to the incident. The incident became even more solid after it was verified by a senior journalist.

Soon the stars started coming out and talking about the incident which happened on the sets of Horn Ok Please in 2008. In an interview with, Tanushree opened up on how the goons were called on the sets and she was threatened and even her car was vandalized. She went on in lengths to talk about the indecent behaviour by Nana Patekar and Ganesh Acharya and how they both conspired to put in an intimate step with Nana into her solo song.

When we got in touch with Kangana Ranaut, who is known to be no-filters attached, the actress shared EXCLUSIVELY with Pinkvilla, “I am not here to pass judgement. That’s neither my place nor my intention. I appreciate her courage to speak about alleged harassment that has been caused to her. It’s her and the accused’s fundamental right to speak about their experience of the same situation. Such dialogue is very healthy and it will bring about a lot of awareness. Unfortunately, the way most Indian men are raised by their mothers; they even lack basic etiquettes like lifting the lid before peeing.”

“Raja beta needs to be told the meaning of ‘NO’ as well. It’s in the interest of society that the Raja betas are told what their parents fail to tell them. They must know that the fundamental human rights are the same for men and women. Trust me, it will be news to some of them. The kind of rape, harassment and teasing news reports we hear every other day, I wonder if some of these zombies out there qualify to be a human. We need to talk about it and we all must share our stories. It will also bring a sense of shame and fear in them as they will know that a girl can stand for herself at any point in time. Our life stories have no expiry date,” Kangana continued.

Well, while Nana Patekar denied all the allegations placed against him, Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan said that they don’t know anything about it, stars like Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Twinkle Khanna, Richa Chadha and Swara Bhasker came out in support of the former actress, take a look at the tweets here:
