Tanushree Dutta’s claims regarding Nana Patekar, took the media by storm. However, it was only limited to news. A lot of people were upset with the fact that none of the Bollywood celebrities came forward to stand with Tanushree Dutta.
A few days ago, Tanushree Dutta came forward again, after 10 years to reveal that Nana Patekar had not only sexually harassed her but intimidated her by sending a political party’s goons to scare her and her family when she reacted.
Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Twinkle Khanna and a few more used their social media pages to voice their opinions and shared that they #BelieveTanushree.
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

Priyanka Chopra shared the same thoughts as Farhan and showed equal support for survivors by saying #BelieveSurvivors
Sonam Kapoor stated:
Twinkle Khanna who is never afraid to coin her thoughts also had a say in this matter:
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! https://t.co/f8Nj9YWRvE

Kangana Ranaut also showed support for Tanushree Dutta by lauding her courage for speaking out. The Queen actress has been quoted saying, “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.”
