Tanushree Dutta is the torchbearer of the MeToo movement in India, and she has spoken freely about her plight and the injustice she has faced. Recently, the actress shared her thoughts on life after initiating the moment in a new interview, revealing that attempts had been made to kill her.
Speaking to Connect FM Canada, Tanushree shared an incident from Ujjain, stating that her car stops had been tampered with on a few occasions. “I had an accident and it was a very bad accident. I just broke some bones. It set me back a few months and it took me time to heal from those injuries because there was a lot of blood loss.” Dutta further added that a maid assigned to help her had in fact been “planted” against her enemies. “There was a maidservant, who, in my words, was planted in my house, and I gradually became ill. But now she feels, ‘I suspect something has mixed in my water.’

Earlier in July, the actress Dutta posted a photo on Instagram along with a statement about being harassed. She shared her photo on her Instagram and wrote a long note. “If anything ever happens to me, please let me know that #metoo accused Nana Patekar, his lawyers and associates and his Bollywood mafia friends are responsible! Note they all have the same criminal defense attorney).”
For the inexperienced, Tanushree claimed that Nana Patekar sexually harassed her while they were filming a song from Horn Ok Pleasss (2008). The matter was renewed in 2018 after the actress also filed a complaint with CINTAA that year. Nana is said to have been given a clean slate by the police in 2019 after she contested the allegations. The actress, who has often spoken out about the difficulties she has faced in the field over the years, was one of the first public figures to lead the MeToo movement in the Indian entertainment sector.
