Following the court ruling about #MeToo case filed against Nana Patekar by Tanushree Dutta, she issued a statement about how she isn’t surprised by the ruling but hopes that things will change;
‘A corrupt police force and legal system gave a clean chit to an even more corrupt person, Nana Patekar who has been accused in the past of bullying, intimidation and harassment by several women in the film Industry. Our witnesses have been silenced by intimidation and fake witnesses have been put forth to weaken the case.
What was the rush to file a B summary report when all of my witnesses have not even recorded their statements yet?? I'm neither shocked nor surprised being a woman in India this is something we all have got used to.
I mean if rape accused Alok Nath got a clean chit and returned to movies then surely it was not going to be difficult for harassment accused Nana Patekar to get himself or shall we say buy himself a clean chit to continue to bully hapless young women.
But the proof is often in the pudding and a gentle reminder to the Indian public to watch the video of my car being mercilessly attacked and broken while me and my family tried to escape from these monsters on Horn ok Pleasss set 10 years ago. After this if you still decide to watch their movies and support then it's your bad karma.
You are corrupt people with no justice but God’s justice will rain on you someday hopefully and will avenge for all the humiliation, insult, harassment, judgement and trauma I have had to endure in the last 10+ years because of this attitude. That is my hope finally for a life without hope is like a candle without fire.
I pray that I never have to deal with this kind of toxicity ever again in life. I’m tired of fighting alone against oppressors, bullies and a corrupt system. I have better things to do in life with my talent and skill set and I need to focus on those but please don’t take this example to mean that you will not be heard when you speak up!!
Continue to expose these creeps through social media and other platforms so that in future people would think twice before troubling an innocent young girl. I still believe btw that I will get justice and victory will be mine!! How? only time will tell.’
