Anushka supports Tanushree, says it takes lot of courage to say these things

Anushka Sharma Varun dhawan

New Delhi, Oct 5: Anushka Sharma is the latest celebrity from Bollywood who spoke in support of Tanushree Dutta over her allegations of sexual harassment against Nana Patekar on the sets of the 2008 film Horn OK Please, saying the details that she has given about her alleged harassment on a movie set are “frightening”.

Sui Dhaaga actress hailed Tanushree for opening up about her harrowing experience in an industry known for its practice of the ‘casting couch’ and said that Dutta should be respected for choosing to come out and speak her truth.

“You should not feel threatened while performing your duties, whatever profession you are in. It takes a lot of courage to come out and say these things knowing the tide that you’re going to be against. That’s the reason why a lot of people don’t speak,” ANI quoted the actress as saying.

Anushka Sharma’s comments resonate with that of her Sui Dhaaga co-star Varun Dhawan, who, speaking at the Jagran Film Festival over the weekend, said he hails Ms Dutta for her courage to be speaking out about an industry, widely seen as male-dominated: “I have been busy with Sui Dhaaga, so I haven’t really heard the whole story, but I think what’s most important at a work place is respect – whether for a woman, man or a child. We want to make our industry a safe place and everyone deserves equal respect. Also if someone is openly talking about the issue, we should hear them out. It takes great courage to talk about it and I applaud that courage.”

Dutta in the recent interview alleged that Patekar misbehaved with her on the sets of the film ‘Horn Ok Please’. She had accused Patekar of harassing her while shooting for a special dance number in the movie, and also accused dance choreographer Ganesh Acharya of teaming up against her.

Tanushree Dutta has also been served a legal notice by Nana Patekar asking for an apology. The actress has also received a legal notice from filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri who, she claims, asked her to strip on the sets of 2005 film Chocolate. “This is the price you pay for speaking out against harassment, humiliation, and injustice in India,” Ms Dutta said of the notices.

Mumbai: In a major development, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday said that it has summoned Bollywood actors Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preeet Singh for questioning in a drug-related case.

A senior NCB official related to the probe told IANS, “Summons have been issued to Deepika, Sara, Shraddha and Rakul for questioning. “Besides four Bollywood actors, the NCB has also summoned fashion designer Simone Khambatta.” However, the official did not share the date when these actors have been called for questioning.

The drug law enforcement agency has also summoned Deepika’s manager Karishma Prakash for questioning. The development comes in the wake of the investigation into a drug-related case linked to the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Sushant was found dead on June 14 at his Bandra flat.

The official said that the actors have been summoned after several alleged chats of them discussing drugs came to the fore during the investigation.

The NCB has registered a case on the request of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) after it found alleged drug chats between Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, house manager Samuel Miranda.

Rhea, Showik, Miranda, Sushant’s personal staff Dipesh Sawant along with 16 other accused have been arrested by the NCB in the case so far.

Sara is the daughter of noted actor Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, while Shradhha is the daughter of veteran actor Shakti Kapoor. Deepika is the daughter of the badminton icon Prakash Padukone and is married to Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh.

The official, however, denied that it has issued any summons to Dia Mirza. Earlier in the day, the NCB continued questioning Sushant’s talent manager Jaya Saha for the third consecutive day.

Besides Saha, the NCB is also questioning Madhu Mantena Varma, a noted producer, who gave blockbusters such as ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Ghajini’.

According to NCB sources, Varma is being confronted with Saha over alleged chats of them discussing drugs. NCB has also questioned Sushant’s former manager Shruti Modi on a number of occassions.

Besides the NCB, the CBI and the ED are also probing the death case of Sushant.
