#BollywoodExposed: About Nana's volatile behavior, Renuka writes open-letter, supports Tanushree
Tanushree Dutta's revelations could possibly kick-start Bollywood's #MeToo campaign if more survivors and stars speak up. Notably, some stars have lent support to Tanushree. Priyanka Chopra, Twinkle Khanna, Anurag Kashyap, and Farhan Akhtar have hailed her bravery. Now, the recent addition to the list is Renuka Shahane. The actress didn't just support Tanushree but also slammed Nana for the incident in a strong-worded letter.
Renuka supports Tanushree's story and ordeal
Renuka, who is known to voice her opinions fearlessly, slammed Nana for his volatile temper and revealed that many people have faced his wrath before. In her well-argued post on Facebook, Renuka asserted that she agreed with Tanushree's story. Tanushree had accused Nana of sexual harassment and alleged that he wanted to film an intimate scene with her during 'Horn Ok Pleassss' shooting.
Renuka put across strong questions, and yes she is right
In her post, Renuka questioned the makers and choreographers about why the steps of the song were not changed after Tanushree expressed her discomfort She also took a dig at the old notion 'ye meri beti jaisi hai' and wrote that had Tanushree been the daughter of someone on the set, would she still have to bear all this?
Renuka also slammed political party for intimidating Tanushree
Further, she also lashed out at the political party which allegedly threatened Tanushree post her allegations and intimidated her to apologize for hurting the "pride of Maharashtra". Talking about the same, Renuka termed it as a huge overreaction and wrote, "Isn't the pride of Maharashtra enshrined in respecting women and making it safer for women to live life? Talk about ironies!"
The scars have still not healed, said Renuka
Renuka criticized the patriarchal society while discussing the aftermath of Tanushree's allegations and said that it was the male ego that won. She pointed out that none of the men who were accused or witnessed the incident faced a difficult time. "The only person who was traumatized was Tanushree. The scars have still not healed. Please do the math," she added.
Renuka's open letter voices every woman's thoughts
Amongst others, Tanushree gets support from Kangana too
Meanwhile, Kangana Ranaut too lauded Tanushree for her courage for speaking against sexual harassment. She said this debate will bring a lot of awareness among people. "It's her and the accused's fundamental right to speak about their experience of the same situation," Kangana told Pinkvilla.
Tanushree-Nana's controversy to take a legal turn
Nana's lawyer has claimed to send a legal notice to Tanushree for defaming the veteran actor. To this, Tanushree replied that she was putting together a team of lawyers to defend her interests. "Instead of making empty threats to intimidate me into silence, send me a legal notice and then you will see what I will do with it," she added.Share this timeline
