Here’s how Aamir and Amitabh reacted on Tanushree-Nana Patekar controversy
Today, the most awaited trailer of Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ was unveiled by its makers. The trailer launch event of the film was grand and spectacular. The entire ensemble cast of the film graced the launch event that took place in Wadala, Mumbai.
At the trailer launch event, both Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan were asked about their opinion on the on-going Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar controversy. For the uninitiated, Tanushree has alleged that Nana Patekar, producer Sami Siddiqui, director Rakesh Sarang and choreographer Ganesh Acharya misbehaved with her while working on ‘Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss’ film, ten years back.
Commenting on the controversy, Aamir said, “I think without knowing the veracity of something or the details of something, I don’t think I can comment, it’s not right for me. But I would like to say that whenever something like this does happen, it’s really sad, now if this has happened or not is for people to investigate. I don’t think we can comment on it.”
Whereas Amitabh Bachchan simply refused to comment on the issue saying, “Naa toh mera naam Tanushree hai aur naa hee Nana Patekar, kaise uttar do aapko iss sawal ka.”(Neither my name is Tanushree nor I am Nana Patekar, how can I answer your question?)
Actress Tanushree had also said that when this incident took place, no one from the industry had come forward to help her or support her. We wonder if we will ever witness a ‘#MeToo’ movement in Bollywood.
