Actress Tanushree Dutta’s allegations against Nana Patekar led to the beginning of #MeToo movement in Bollywood. Soon after she came forward with her #MeToo story, several women came forward to put name and shame their offenders.

When several stories of sexual misconduct against Sajid Khan surfaced, he was sacked as the director of ‘Housefull 4′. Soon after Sajid, Nana Patekar stepped out of the film stating that he doesn’t want the makers of the film to face any inconvenience because of him. Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao too distanced themselves from ‘Mogul’ as its director Subhash Kapoor too was accused of sexual harassment.

Now responding to Nana’s ouster from the film, Tanushree told DNA, “Let’s say I am not celebrating, yet because there is so much more that needs to be done. I am glad that somebody like Akshay finally decided to put his foot down and has chosen to not work with people such as these. I am also happy that Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao and a couple of other production houses are taking a stand, but I would not want this to be a one-time thing. Right now, the situation is hot, so let’s disassociate and at a later date collaborate again. So, I am just seeing where this is going before I can raise a toast.”

However, she agreed that with powerful people taking concrete steps against the offenders, it is a very encouraging thing. Also, the actress wants more and more people to come forward and share their stories so that the movement doesn’t fizzle out.
