Tanushree Dutta recently relived her 10 year old case. She has accused Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her in the past. After 10 years, the issue has now become debatable.

The Tanushree Dutta- Nana Patekar controversy has indeed come across as a storm before the industry, with everyone having their own person to side with, thereby creating a divide. The actress has accused Vivek Agnihotri, co-star Nana Patekar and choreographer Ganesh Acharya of sexually abusing her. The said incident dates back to 2008, and while Tanushree did speak up then, her speaking now comes across as meaningless to many. However, she has received support from many despite having taken this measure to come out in the open.

Post the statement, multiple celebrities including the likes of Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Twinkle Khanna, Parineeti Chopra, Ranveena Tondon among many others have come out in her support. And now, siding with her is actress Freida Pinto, who not only came out in her support but also had a message to give out as to how it doesn’t matter that a person is coming out after long but what matters is that after the harassment the person does speak about. It doesn’t change that it did happen after all. We see no reason why, she doesn’t deserve all the support either.

She stated in her post, “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.”

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.

A post shared by Freida Pinto (@freidapinto) on

Recently, a video from back in 2008 has been doing the rounds where men are seen vandalizing her car. Though it is still not clear if the video of from the sets of Horn Ok Please because a journalist was also seen hitting her car with his camera, and trying to puncture it so as to not let her make a move.

For now, many have come out in her support while some have their own ideologies to believe upon. Until then, more power to Tanushree.

Majority of people live in the shadows of fear instilled and propagated by the an elite fraternity of cowards. Men who need to harass, intimidate and bully women into submission cover their inherent weak character with a sense of false bravado.

Ah, this is how you respond. Take note, khans, kapoors and bacchan!
