She has said that no champion works in Bollywood, sex abuse is a reality here. Under this campaign, some celebrities have disclosed sexual abuse with themselves during some time. Several actresses of Bollywood such as Radhika Apte, Richa Chadha, Swara Bhaskar, and Konkona Sen Sharma have also spoken of facing sexual harassment.


Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta was known for her bold image. She made her debut in Bollywood in 2005 with the film Aashik Baneya Apnay. Apart from this film, he gave intimate scenes in many films, after which he got the status of a bold actress.

Tanushree told in an interview that during the shooting of ‘Horn okay please’ in 2008, an actor mistreated me. "He wanted to make an intimate sequence with me on the set. He caught my hand and pushed me. This actor was not a part of the song but he again tried to do that thing with me. Somehow I saved myself and returned the film’s advance money. On this, he ransacked my car."


Tanushree on the #Metoo Campaign says that these campaigns will not be accepted in India unless the people will take any concrete steps about the sexual abuse incident. Today, they are talking about women empower, who was silent about this incident with me at that time.

Dutta, who debuted in 2005 with Emraan Hashmi, Sonu Sood starred romantic film, also worked in films like DholGood Boy, Bad Boy and Apartment, which was her last onscreen appearance.
