New Delhi: The explosive interview of Tanushree Dutta and her allegations against senior actor Nana Patekar has set the debate open about harassment at workplace and how women still feel 'unsafe' in such circumstances.
Tanushree opened a can of worms when revealing a horrid experience while she was shooting for 'Horn Ok Please' in 2009. The actress alleged that senior actor Nana Patekar harassed her during the filming of a dance number for this movie.
Some of Bollywood's A-listers such as Sonam Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar etc came out in Tanushree's support and lauded her for speaking about the incident in open.
Actress Daisy Shah, who was present on the film sets has been quoted as saying by News18.com, “I was just an assistant choreographer who knew nothing about what all was happening. I have nothing to say about it. My job over there was only to teach steps. I wasn’t the part of the internal conversation of what was happening and not happening. I was just like a random person who was shooting on that film.”
Adding more, she said, “I wasn’t only concentrating on one artiste; there were 30 other dancers on set. I wasn’t even in the position where I could even speak or I had to even notice anything because I was so busy with my own work. My all sympathies are with Tanushree but I swear I know nothing about it.”
Meanwhile, the former beauty queen also accused dance choreographer Ganesh Acharya of teaming up against her. She further alleged that she and her family were attacked after she refused to perform the intimate step.
