Tanushree feels both of them are being opportunistic and clever. Priyanka, retweeted Farhan Akhtar’s tweet, which itself was a retweet of a journalist’s thread which narrated the incident that happened on the sets (the said journalist was an eye-witness). Priyanka’s tweet hinted that survivors stories should be believed. But Tanushree isn’t too kicked about the Quantico star’s support.
According to Tanushree, Priyanka Chopra has just sent out a customary tweet without naming her just be on the right side of the debate and not to anger anybody.
“I have a name,” Tanushree Dutta said. “Well, it’s amazing. She (Priyanka) has finally decided to join the bandwagon. It’s probably a smart thing to do at this point in time. But I just want people to know that I am not going to be reduced to a survivor. I have a name, I have a story and I have this truth that I am trying to get out because it’s not for me but for people who will come forward in the generations to come,” Tanushree Dutta added in a televised interview.
She also spoke about Twinkle Khanna whose husband is working with Nana Patekar. Twinkle was one of the stars who tweeted that Tanushree’s story should be heard and believed and that it was essential for actors to get a safe working environment during work. Tanushree appreciated Twinkle’s support towards her but pointed out that her husband, Akshay Kumar, was still working with Nana in Sajid Khan’s Housefull 4.
