Tanushree Dutta's fight against Nana Patekar and Vivek
Agnihotri is growing bigger and bigger by the day. Now, the actress, who claims
to have been sexually harassed by Nana during the shoot of Horn 'Ok' Pleassss
in 2008 and asked to take off her clothes and dance during the shoot of
Chocolate by Vivek, has received legal notices from both. However, the story
doesn't end there, as Tanushree opens up saying that yesterday two men tried to
get into her home.

In a statement released by her PR team, Tanushree said,
“I have been slapped with two legal notices today.One from Nana Patekar and
another from Vivek Agnihotri.This is the price you pay for speaking out against
harassment, humiliation and injustice in India. Both Nana's and Vivek
Agnihotri's teams are on a smear campaign against me by constructing outright
lies and misinformation on social media platforms and other public
platforms.Their supporters are coming ahead and weaving damming allegations
against me even shouting at the top of their voices at press conferences.Today
while I was at home and the police personnel posted outside my home were on a
lunch break two unnamed suspicious individuals tried getting into our home
uninvited but were stopped just in time by security personnel in the
building. Later the police came back from their break and secured the premises
again.Violent threats are being issued against me by the MNS party.I'm being
threatened to be dragged into the court and legal system of India which we all
know can keep a woman and her supporters as well as media silent on the
pretext of "matter subjudice" but can also further be used to harass
her and drain her out financially. "Tareek pe Tareek pe tareek" and
the dawn of justice never arrives and her whole life goes waste awaiting
justice while witnesses are intimidated,discredited or simply drained of
their will to stand up. False witnesses supporting perpetrators conjured up to
further weaken her case. Court cases can run for decades without a hope for a
conclusion. At the end an empty shell remains, broken hopes, a life wasted,
defeated.This is the age old saga of survivors in our nation. I walked away
once from the same environment that was created for me 10 years ago. Found God,
found my healing, found my peace and a new life in United States of America.
And now I stand to lose this new life too if I allow myself to get embroiled in
the court system of India. And you wanted to know why the me too movement
hasn't happened in India.This is why."
