A case that took place 10 years ago has gained all the attention now in 2018. Yes, we are talking about Tanushree and Nana Patekar controversy.
Tanushree had put allegations against veteran actor Nana Patekar for harassing her sexually. The incident took place on the sets of the movie, ‘Horn OK Pleassss’. The case caught limelight when the actress started interviewing for the same in the media. In spite of many allegations the actors who were accused did not respond. After a few days of allegations, a video from the sets of the picture has surfaced on the internet which clearly shows the attacks that took place on the car of the actress while she was in the car with her parents.
After the actress spoke about all that she faced, many actors from Bollywood have come in support of the actress. But now after many days of the allegations, Nana Patekar and Vivek Agnihotri have sent the legal notice to the actress.
The actress has recently talked about what she has been facing, she 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 Agnihotris 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..."
