The Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar controversy is on the full swing and thus, many of the actor and actresses in the industry have come out in Tanushree’s support. The ‘Ashique Banaya Aapne’ actress accused Nana Patekar of sexual misconduct on the sets of ‘Horn OK Pleassss’. She had shared the incident on 2008 when all of this happened but because of circumstances, she not much was talked about then. Now, the actress is talking about it and celebrities like Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Twinkle Khanna shared that they believe Tanushree.
Taking this forward, Raveena Tandon has come out with everything that goes inside the industry openly. The actress talked about the hypocrisy in the film industry. She took to her Twitter page and defined harassment in the broadest form and what all goes on in the film industry when star wives and girlfriends have to go through. She wrote about how actors destroy an actress' career after they get married and the wife becomes a silent spectator and nothing more.
Raveena Tandon tweeted, "What defines harassment in a workplace? The fact that many industry wives/girlfriends are silent observers or instigators, when actor husbands destroy the actresses careers after the chase and flirtation is over, have them replaced with other potential targets?".
She also posted a long blog where she wrote about such harassments in detail which read, "So who decides what is the truth? In the 1990s this was so prevalent, a married actor would have a discreet affair with the young heroine he was working with and expected the girl to show no emotion or sign of involvement. And God forbid if in a weak moment she does show, all hell would break loose!"
The actress went on saying all the horror stories and experiences which Bollywood actresses has to face, "The industry was and maybe is still a hero oriented where terms and conditions are dictated by super star male actors. But the slight shift is there for all to see. Much before my generation, in the 70’s some heroines were driven to paranoia and ultimately declare schizophrenics and written off. A gorgeous model actress was found dead after being labelled that and another beauty queen/model/actress was beaten up black and blue by a hero husband and his wife! She lost an eye and her career.”
She said, “In 90’s (my generation) the girls fought back but silently. If they spoke, either they were labelled pathological liars or as the macho heroes would show their bravado by threatening in the next glossy headline as how they would smash the girls face or bash her the next time they saw her or she spoke about them – whereas the girls would quietly pick up the pieces of their hearts and careers and try to let their work speak."
