Ever since, Tanushree Dutta came out with the allegations of harassment against veteran actor Nana Patekar, which had happened on the sets of the film ‘Horn Ok Pleassss’ in 2008, the last one month has been a little hectic for the actress, hasn’t it? After Tanushree’s revelations, the whole movement against sexual harassment gathered momentum and in a way, India’s #MeToo movement was launched.

Now, if reports are to believed, the ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’ actress will be taking a break from social media amid all the controversies as she wants to recuperate totally. A source who is very close to Tanushree told Asian Age, “She has bitten off more than she can chew. Constant media interactions and attacks by the likes of Rakhi Sawant have depleted her energy. She has taken off to a health spa near Pune hoping to catch her breath. She is totally off the internet and her phone. She wants to spend her time deciding her future course of action.”

Tanushree Dutta has been targetted by various groups and trolls for her actions and has been subjected to victim shaming. The former Miss India has filed an FIR against Nana Patekar and others who harassed her. Post her allegations, Nana voluntarily left the ‘Housefull 4′ project. Tanushree was also belittled by Rakhi Sawant in a press conference, where she mocked her and said that Tanushree is a lesbian and had raped her.

So, taking a break from the social media could count as a blessing in disguise for Tanushree as you can only control the controllable.
