Actress and model Tanushree Dutta’s allegations of sexual harassment on veteran actor Nana Patekar has once again led to the discussion of how safe our work environments for women in India especially in a film industry like Bollywood is.
After Tanushree opened up again on the incident that took place 10 years back, some celebs have come out in her support while others have started calling this as a publicity stunt on the part of the actress. Now finally, Tanushree’s sister Ishita Dutta Sheth, who is also an actress, has broken her silence on this entire episode.
In an interview with Bollywoodlife, Ishita said that whatever happened was wrong not because it involves her sister, in general, it should not have happened with anyone for that matter. She also expressed her disappointment that very few people have come out in support of her family.
She went on to add that her entire family was terrified and scared after the incident and they will never forget what happened with her sister back then on the sets of ‘Horn OK Pleassss’.
Ishita also shared how her sister supported her decision to enter this industry saying that one bad incident should not stop her from doing what she wants to do. And thankfully she has personally never faced such situation in her career so far. Ishita also stated that she is proud of her sister for setting an example and will always support her.
Ishita has worked in films like ‘Drishyam’, ‘Firangi’ and is currently working in television shows. She is married to actor Vatsal Sheth of ‘Taarzan: The Wonder Car’ fame.
