BOLLYWOOD: After the shocking revelations made by former actress Tanushree Dutta against veteran actor Nana Patekar, several Bollywood celebrities like Farhan Akhtar, Swara Bhasker, Priyanka Chopra, Twinkle Khanna and Richa Chadha have come out in her support.
While some have come out in support of her there are celebs who have questioned the hypocrisy in the industry. The latest actress to join the bandwagon is Raveena Tandon as she shares her thoughts on harassment in the industry.
Talking to Twitter she wrote, “What defines harassment in a workplace? The fact that many industry wives/girlfriends are silent observers or instigators, when actor husbands destroy the actresses careers after the chase and flirtation is over, have them replaced with other potential targets?”
Furthermore, she shared a long post on her personal blog wherein she elaborates on this topic. Her blog reads, “So who decides what is the truth? In the 1990s this was so prevalent, a married actor would have a discreet affair with the young heroine he was working with and expected the girl to show no emotion or sign of involvement. And God forbid if in a weak moment she does show, all hell would break loose!
She would lose her films with the co-star, not be spoken to by the hero and his camp – get removed from whatever movies she would have with him and “his people-“. And then would follow a spate of threatening interviews with her under pressure to keep quiet and watch her life and reputation being torn to bits, while the hero would tarnish her name and reputation and in some interviews proving his machismo image even threaten to ” break the girls face ” if she spoke about him.
