#MeToo effect: Tata Sons terminate their contract with Suhel Seth
The ongoing #MeToo movement in India has led to the downfall of a number of eminent personalities. This movement was initiated by actress Tanushree Dutta who had accused actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment. Her act soon had many others opening up with their #MeToo stories.
Eminent celebrities like Nana Patekar, Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl and many others (who have been facing accusations of sexual harassment) have been asked to step back from the projects that they have been handling. Suhel Seth (who has been accused of the same by six women including model Diandra Soares, filmmaker Natashja Rathore, and writer Ira Trivedi) too has been terminated from his contract by India’s largest conglomerate Tata Sons.
Tata Sons had a contract with Suhel Seth’s strategic brand marketing consultancy Counselage. They have decided to end their contract with him due to allegations of sexual harassment against him.
As reported by a spokesperson from Tata Sons to NDTV, the firm has decided to prematurely end the contract by giving a month’s notice. Seth worked with the PR team of the Tata Group when the Ratan Tata and Cyrus Mistry boardroom battle had broken out.
Suhel had been accused by filmmaker Natashja Rathore who posted a number of WhatsApp messages recapping the alleged incident that happened at Seth’s home in Gurgaon. Journalist Mandakini Gahlot revealed how Suhel kissed her during one of the events in Goa. Former ‘Bigg Boss‘ contestant Diandra Soares too had revealed that during one of the after parties of a fashion week, Suhel shoved his tongue down her mouth. She immediately bit his tongue with all her might.
