Her shocking revelations has created a buzz on social media and has divided the internet into two parts. While, the majority of the Bollywood celebrities were keeping mum on the controversy, on the other hand, a few celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Richa Chaddha, Farhan Akhtar and many more have took stand for the actress on social media.
When asked about the controversy to Nana Patekar, he rubbished all the allegations made on him and said that his lawyer will send legal notice to her.
However, Tanushree Dutta in a recent interview opened up and revealed that she has not received any legal notice from their side. She said :
“Given the recent developments I am putting together a team of lawyers and advocates to defend my interests.Also contrary to claims made by Nana’s lawyer I have not received any legal notice.So bluffmaster gogo needs to step up his game a bit here.Instead of making empty threats to intimidate me into silence, send me a legal notice and then you will see what I will do with it!!”
She also opened up how people are questioning her and supporting Nana Patekar, in-spite of having all the witnesses and evidences in her support, she said :
“Another very important issue that this current scenario raises is how when a victim speaks up there are morally bankrupt and corrupt lawyers and advocates who come forward to defend serial harassers and offenders for their two seconds of fame.Despite witnesses coming forward and all evidence in my support im being subjected to criminal intimidation and harassment by Nana’s helper.I am sure this guy has many skeletons in his closet too as birds of a feather always flock together.”
She added :
“This is the story of countless millions in our country who are still waiting justice because they got dragged into a web of legal mumbo jumbo and were silenced into submission.They make a mockery of not only our judiciary but also our esteemed constitution by trying to disrupt a persons freedom of speech by such threats. “
She also requested that serious actons should be taken against the lawyer of Nana Patekar and him :
“This lawyer along with his client should both be questioned and taken to task. I have a humble request to the bar association of India to call out and take action against him and other such people who help perpetrators further harass their victims and witnesses in the name of law.”
