Legal process not dependent on me : Tanushree Dutta

India’s MeToo movement caught momentum after Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta told the world of an eight-year-old incident when actor Nana Patekar allegedly sexually harassed her on a film set.

After sparking the movement, which gave a lot of victims to call out their predators, the 34-year-old actress is all set to leave the country and go back to the US.

In an interview with the Mid-Day, the actress revealed that she would leave for New Jersey next year.

“My future lies there. I will head out early next year. When I came down to Mumbai, I thought I would go back after a month, but it’s been five months,” Tanushree said.

Speaking of the ongoing MeToo movement, the Bhagam Bhag actress said, “I do not look at it as now hot, now cold. Such things are a revolution. What matters is its impact in the future. It has created an atmosphere where sexual predators are aware that they cannot get away with misbehaviour. It came as a surprise when women began calling out the sexual predators. I am aware that #MeToo cannot be front page news every day.”

“I have been living with it for a decade without redressal. The legal process is not dependent on me being around. If I have to be around to push the case, what is the point of the legal system and law enforcers?” she added.

Dutta had filed an FIR against Patekar in Mumbai’s Oshiwara police station, accusing him of behaving inappropriately on the set of Horn Ok Pleasss while shooting a song in 2008.

Dutta has also accused choreographer Ganesh Acharya, film director Rakesh Sarang and producer Samee Siddique of being a silent spectator to everything that happened on the set.The Statesman.
