It was last year when Tanushree Dutta spoke about the #MeToo movement and the sexual harassment that she faced at the hands of Nana Patekar, on the sets of the film Horn Ok Pleassss. Thanks to her, a lot of other women spoke up about their sexual harassment stories. The movement gained momentum in India and women’s safety became an important topic of discussion in every field of work. Recently, TV actress Tinaa Dattaa, known for her role in the TV serial Uttaran, has spoken up about the sexual misconduct she faced during the shooting of her on-going serial Daayan.
Tinaa has accused her co-actor Mohit Malhotra of sexually misbehaving with her during the shoot. While talking to Spotboye, she said, “He would say that his character demands that he should keep his hand here and there. There was a big showdown on the set. It happened at Klick Nixon Studios when we were shooting for a hospital scene. Some media people were also there and they saw this. Of course, I made it loud and clear. I have done rape scenes, romantic scenes and intimate scenes before in my career, but never faced something like this with anyone before. He is so annoying. He is so frustrated.”
“It was going on since a long time. I went public only after it became so much that I couldn’t take it anymore. Nobody gives excuses like him that ‘woh scene mein bahek gaya tha’. He can’t say he got carried away. He was obviously doing it deliberately,” the actress added.
