Actress Tanushree Dutta’s recent allegations against Nana Patekar claiming that he sexually harassed her on the sets of Horn ‘Ok’ Pleasss, a decade ago, have been finding supporters aplenty. The actress has spoken about the incident in the past as well, but this time, post the #MeToo wave in the West, Indian audiences and celebs are sitting up and listening and even offering support to the lady.
While the voices in support are only getting louder, there is a section of Bollywood who are playing it safe by choosing not to comment on the situation and legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan happens to be one of them. At the trailer launch of Thugs of Hindostan, when he was quizzed about the entire controversy, he replied, “Neither am I Tanushree, nor am I Nana Patekar, so how can I comment on this?”
