So, Nana Patekar says that he will now file a case against you...
What case? Criminal or civil? Does he even have a case? I lost to reputation and career which can be evaluated to several crores. What about compensating me with that? These are just tactics used by Nana to intimidate a victim. With this, he is basically threatening me into silence.10 years ago, this might have worked on me. Lekin aaj, I refuse to take this ploy to shut me up. I have said that he is a bully. Isn't he corroborating my description of his?
Last time, you filed an FIR. I mean, in 2008...
And I ended up exhausting himself. The society, at large, slut-shamed me. But trust me, times have changed. People will come forward and stand by me.
And indeed, it has happened. We spoke to Tanushree late last night and since this morning, we have had Priyanka Chopra, Swara Bhaskar, Sonam, Twinkle Khanna, Farhan Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap and Siddharth (of Rang De Basanti).
I believe #TanushreeDatta and @janiceseq85 recollection of the account. Janice is my friend, and she is anything but an exaggerator or a liar. And it’s upto us to stand together. https://t.co/sF3mS5o1P8— Sonam K Ahuja (@sonamakapoor) September 28, 2018
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— Twinkle Khanna (@mrsfunnybones) September 28, 2018
If my previous tweet sounds vague let me clarify it. This should stop the questioning of intention of Tanushree Datta because there is a witness account of what happened and @janiceseq85 is as credible as the come .— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) September 28, 2018
This should stop the speculation .. about the intention of the survivor https://t.co/1R9Zs12DIM— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) September 28, 2018
We must stop asking 'what did you about it then' and start asking 'what can we do about it now'. It's now or never.— Hansal Mehta (@mehtahansal) September 28, 2018
I am aware of a journalist who has been working on a piece about sexual harassment in Bollywood since nearly a year. Is his publication stopping the investigative piece from being published or is the journalist afraid that he will lose his access to stars because of his findings?— Hansal Mehta (@mehtahansal) September 28, 2018
If a women speaks out about abuse, you listen. Even if it's on her deathbed 50 years after the incident,you listen. If you ask why she didn't speak earlier or you rush to dismiss her, the problem is with you. There will be investigation; but first, listen. Period. #TanushreeDutta— Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) September 28, 2018
Reporting abuse is traumatic. To be analyzed in public for it is torture. To have some bastard suggest the woman is doing it for attention is inhuman. You always give the victim benefit of the doubt. Enough with shaming! Innocent men will overcome any accusation! #TanushreeDutta— Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) September 28, 2018
Whether it's a man or a woman, just because someone is good at their work or charitable, doesn't mean they aren't capable of harrasement!!— kunal kapoor (@kapoorkkunal) September 28, 2018
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— Farhan Akhtar (@FarOutAkhtar) September 27, 2018
It hurts to be #TanushreeDutta rn. To be alone, questioned. No woman wants publicity that opens the floodgates of trolling and insensitivity.What happened to her on set was intimidation.Her only fault was she didn’t back down-takes a special courage to be #TanushreeDutta.— TheRichaChadha (@RichaChadha) September 27, 2018
Rakesh Sarang has said that you knew beforehand that the song which you complaining about was going to be duet song...
Let them blabber like fools. Their voices are so weak now that nobody is buying their bullsh** anymore. They are simply showing their true colours for the world to see. They are exposing themselves- and how!. They have only a bag of lies to say. Their words cannot be taken as gospel truth and my words should not be taken as claims.
Sarang has even said that 'you should move ahead'...
That's what they want- so that they can continue with their atrocities.
Sarang has said on the lines, that 'If a man wants to flirt, he would do it in his cabin and not on the set with many people around'...
God, this was not flirting. This was harassment (pauses).
Dunno what will be the outcome this time, but same outcome nahin hoga.
What makes you feel that way?
God is telling me that I have conversations with Him and I strongly feel that I can fight this battle even alone today. I am emboldened, I feel the nation is with me. And, even otherwise, I am stronger than before. I am not scared. I refuse to take any fear inside me. I am a different Tanushree now. I am older and wiser.
