Dutta also named producer Sami Siddiqui, choreographer Ganesh Acharya and director Rakesh Sarang in her accusation.Now the Bollywood is completely divided like never before over the issue. While a section starts have supported her, the other section raised their finger on her why she was so late in her accusation.
However, there are some others who do not believe what Tanushree has to say, have dismissed her story, mocked her, and have even called it a publicity stunt. Now, after a sting operation by Times Now, some tapes have been released by the channel, with the producer of the 2008 film Horn Ok Pleasss, Samee Siddiqui, the film 's director Rakesh Sarang, the Cine amp; TV Artists Association (CINTAA) member Raza Murad and former FTII chairperson Gajendra Chauhan, mocking Tanushree and making sexist comments amounting to victim shaming.
Actress Sapna Pabbi, best known for starring in the very popular web series The Trip, recently revealed her own trauma while on set in an Instagram post titled 'I believe in Tanushree Dutta.' Ms Pabbi's story is singular because she points a finger not only at the men who behaved poorly but also the women who she says either colluded or failed to speak for her. Ms Pabbi's post, in which she writes particularly of a full day filming in an underwired bikini, calls out "the way some of these women have remained absent during such traumatic and difficult situations and were merely witnessing if not taking advantage themselves." Sapna Pabbi echoes a tweet posted by Raveena Tandon in response to the allegations of harassment made by Tanushree Dutta against Nana Patekar that are now consuming the film industry.
