In September this year, Tanushree Dutta again spoke about the incident of sexual harassment she had to face on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2008. The actress revealed that Nana Patekar had harassed her when she refused to do an intimate dance number with him and choreographer Ganesh Acharya was involved in it too. When the actress had talked about it 10 years ago, she received no support from the people and the film industry. However, this time the actress received enormous support from the common people as well as from the film industry.

While many people applauded the actress for her bravery and for giving the courage to other women in India to name out their sexual predators, there were also people who trolled her, disbelieved her and made fun of her. Nana and Ganesh both dismissed her story from the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss and Rakhi Sawant accused Tanushree of rape charges. As reported by DNA, Tanushree Dutta's team has shared a long statement given by the actress where she talks about the #MeToo movement and gave it back to those who call the stories fake and to those women seeking attention.

Tanushree Dutta wrote, 

"The Horn OK Pleassss harassment incident and the mob attack there had sent me spiralling into a deep state of depression in 2008. Although I went on to finish my other projects with a smile on my face, deep inside I wanted to die. The harassment, manipulation, threats, the horrible things spoken about me and the humiliation I had to endure was too much for my sensitive soul to bear. After putting years of hard work to be treated this way was and still is shattering. The attitude of these kind of people and my constant upstream struggle in the face of such frequent negativity that I have received made me want to give up often. Few years later Jiah and Pratyusha committed suicide. I somehow lived.

This time after I spoke again inspiring many to share their #metoo stories and exorcise their demons out, the same kind of toxic stuff was thrown at me by many especially Ganesh Acharya and Rakhi Sawant who levelled all manner of derogatory accusations on me."
