Another eyewitness has spoken on the Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar controversy
Tanushree Dutt-Nana Patekar‘s controversy has stirred the entire Bollywood industry. Many Bollywood stalwarts including Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor, Twinkle Khanna, Parineeti Chopra, Swara Bhasker and Anurag Kashyap among others stood up to support Tanushree. Also, a couple of days back two eyewitnesses – a journalist named Janice Sequeira and an assistant director named Shyni Shetty took to Twitter to reveal some unknown details about the incident. Now, Daisy Shah has come up to share her account.
Daisy Shah, who was the assistant choreographer to Ganesh Acharya in the movie ‘Horn Ok Pleassss’, spoke at length about the entire incident that occurred in 2008. Recalling the incident, the ‘Race 3’ actress told Bollywood Hungama, “My job was to give Tanushree the steps, make her learn them and then help her execute them. Now what Tanushree has said that she and I had a great rapport. Yes, because we rehearsed for 3-4 days before shooting the song. For the first two days on the sets, everything went very swiftly and on the third day something happened which I am not aware of. But Tanushree, being a woman, has come out and she has said that this is what she has gone through. So I totally sympathize with her.”
“We had 60-70 dancers. The assistant choreographer’s job is to set up the entire shot. So in the midst of that, something might have gone wrong with her, that she went and locked herself in the vanity van for almost 3-4 hours. And then the media was called and then the entire “hoo-haa” happened and Tanushree had a really hard time,” added Daisy.
When Daisy was asked if Tanushree is doing all these for publicity, she further said, “Why would anybody want to talk about sexual harassment that the person has gone through and that too after a decade. There must be a lava inside her that burst out after ten years and why not? I mean she has gone through so much and she should definitely speak up. Because if women like her come out, there are a lot of other women who can actually get that courage from people like Tanushree.”
