The sexual abuse allegations on actor Nana Patekar were laughed off at by him. Superstars like Big B and Aamir Khan who usually voice their opinions on matters like women safety and gender equality also chose to remain silent on this issue.
However, Tanushree has not been left alone in her tiff with Nana Patekar. Actors including Radhika Apte, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Richa Chadha, Swara Bhaskar, and Twinkle Khanna support Tanushree which can be seen in their tweets.
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

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.

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

The case against actor Nana Patekar was that he harassed actor Tanushree Dutta in the year 2008 on the sets of the film ‘Horn OK Please’. Janice was the first witness to come forward and support her.
