In October last year, Tanushree Dutta shared the incident of sexual harassment by Nana Patekar on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2008. Her bravery and courage to talk about the incident led to the beginning of Me Too movement in India. Because of her courage and bravery, many women mustered up the courage to share their incidents and name the sexual predators in and outside the film industry.
The actress is now returning to the US and told IANS that the entire movement and the initiative should not be dependent on her. Tanushree said, "Nothing should be dependent on me because when things are dependent on the initiative by a single individual, they get bound and don't flourish freely in its own time."  Tanushree further added, "The media is just making a heroine out of an ordinary person's organic journey. I was not the doer but just a conduit and a vessel through which some change or awareness had to come about in society."
When Tanushree had shared her story, many people supported her and some said she is doing it all for attention. However, the actress received a great support from the film industry and so do other women who shared their stories.
After her revelations, Nana Patekar was outed from Akshay Kumar starrer Housefull 4. He was replaced by Rana Daggubati.
Due to the Me Too movement, many popular and big names from the film industry like Sajid Khan, Alok Nath, Kailash Kher, Rajat Kapoor, Anu Malik and others.
