NEW DELHI: Well known actor Tanushree Dutta has alleged that “Bollywood mafia and the old political circuit of Maharashtra” for targeting her after she took stand against injustice.
“The Bollywood Mafia, the old political circuit of Maharashtra (which still has influence here) and nefarious anti – national criminal elements together usually operate like this to trouble people (sic),” the former Miss India wrote in a lengthy Instagram post on Tuesday.
Dutta, the 38-year-old alleged she was being targeted in a systematic manner. “The #metoo culprits & the NGO who I exposed” were responsible for her troubles,” she said.
“I’m very sure the #metoo culprits & the NGO who I exposed are behind all this because why else would I be targeted & harassed like this?? Shame on you all…. It’s severe mental, physical & psychological harassment. What kind of place is this where young boys and girls can just be harassed and killed for standing against injustice? (sic)” she added.
Known for films such as “Aashiq Banaya Aapne” and “Chocolate”, Dutta said those who were trying to pull her down won’t succeed.
“I’m not going to commit suicide for sure yeh kaan kholkar sun lo sab log!! Nor am I leaving & going anywhere. I’m here to stay & resurrect my public career to greater heights than ever before!”
She triggered India’s #MeToo Movement in 2018 by revealing a decade-old case of alleged harassment against actor Nana Patekar that started a heated debate across the world.
