Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar controversy are doing rounds on the internet. Many eye-witnesses have come forward and took a stand for the actress. A lot of videos have come out from 2008 that shows how the actress’s car was attacked when she was leaving the shoot. Some stars have come forward in the support of the actress while some big names from Bollywood have decided to stay mum.
Ayushmann Khurrana who has been doing movies on a lot of social issues spoke on this controversy and shared his thoughts to a leading daily.
Talking about the shaming and trolling that Tanushree is going through for coming forward about the assault that she went through, Ayushamann said,
“I think people who are trolling her should be blocked and banned from Twitter. They should show some empathy. At the same time, an equal opportunity should be given to both the sides to justify themselves. It doesn’t matter whether she’s taken time (to speak about it) or not. Whatever was wrong was wrong and there’s no time limit to it. Whether you want to come out in the open, it’s your prerogative. Let’s just be fair to both the sides, that’s more important.”
The powerful people in the industry choose to stay silent every time something like this happens. Isn’t it important for the powerful men in the industry to take a stand on such issues?
Ayushmann talking about this said, “I don’t know. Sometimes you just want to be apolitical. It’s a tricky situation.”
People generally try to not comment on such issues. They want to be on the safe side. Ayushmann while talking to a leading daily said,
“It’s high time everyone spoke about it. In this day and age, you should definitely do so as in urban cities, we talk about pay parity and gender equality. Rural India, however, is still lagging behind.”
