Tanushree Dutta Case: Shakti Kapoor Cracks A Joke When Asked About The Allegations

By now we’re sure you’ve heard Tanushree Dutta's allegations that have been flooding the media for the past week. Dutta alleged that 10 years ago on the sets of Horn Ok Pleasss she was made to feel uncomfortable by co-star Nana Patekar. Nana touched her inappropriately during a dance sequence and when she felt uneasy and left the set with her parents, goons from a political party attacked her car. While she tried to get justice at the time too, did media interviews and filed police cases, nobody listened to her. However, things have changed now.


Bollywood celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Parineeti Chopra, Anurag Kashyap, Farhan Akhtar and many more have spoken up in support of Tanushree. However, there are still people who are doubting her intentions and making a mock of her situation.


In a recent interview, actor Shakti Kapoor was asked about his opinions on the case. He said, "I don’t know anything about this case. This was 10 years back, I was a kid back then."



It has not gone down well with the Twitterati and his past has been dredged up. Many have asked him about the assault allegations that he had had, while others brought up his daughter Shraddha Kapoor and what he would have said had it been her on the receiving end of such behaviour.







There may be some who don't support Tanushree, but the majority are taking her side and lending their support. Love Sonia actor Freida Pinto took to Instagram to share her opinion on the matter. She wrote, "I Believe Tanushree Dutta! I don't need to know her personally, neither have been present on that horrendous day she got bullied, abused both sexually and psychologically, intimidated and shut down in order to corroborate her story. However, I do know what Truth, Hurt and Abuse sounds like. India - Stand Up, Speak Up. Don't look to just your superstars to speak up."

Today, I interrupt my feed for a bit from all the fashion week poses to stand by what I truly Believe. I Believe Tanushree Dutta! I don't need to know her personally, neither have been present on that horrendous day she got bullied, abused both sexually and psychologically, intimidated and shut down inorder to corroborate her story. However, I do know what Truth, Hurt and Abuse sounds like. The same way millions of people in the world know that Dr. Christine Blasey- Ford is NOT a Liar or an attention seeking, tantrum throwing overgrown child. I add my voice to the other voices coming out in support of Tanushree's bravery because God knows this is not going to be easy for you, Tanushree. But what you have done is monumental and important and it has to shake the very core of a nation and an ideology that for too long has gotten away with heinous crimes against women and where the ugliness of misogyny has dominated the rights and suppressed any voice that has dared to speak up. Also, even if someone speaks up ( and in Tanushree's case- speaks up AGAIN) 10 years later, it doesn't dilute or nullify a factual, verified, double verified truth. Her story is not a carton of milk that expires after a few days, ready to be discarded. So trolls : please do what you do best but it is not going to change the Truth. India - Stand Up, Speak Up. Don't look to just your superstars to speak up. Be your own role models and follow the voice of your conscience. Follow the truth and stand by a woman's right to be her own wind keeper. You may just end up setting an example for many others who probably need your grit and courage to speak up. I SUPPORT TANUSHREE DUTTA.

Even Vicky Donor star, Ayushmann Khurrana spoke up and made some pretty valid points. In a conversation with DNA, he said, "They should show some empathy. At the same time, an equal opportunity should be given to both the sides to justify themselves. It doesn’t matter whether she’s taken time (to speak about it) or not. Whatever was wrong was wrong and there’s no time limit to it. Whether you want to come out in the open, it’s your prerogative. Let’s just be fair to both the sides, that’s more important."


We're glad that the Bollywood industry is not shying away from taking a stand this time and hope that Tanushree gets justice.
