With Nana Patekar‘s NGO suing Tanushree Dutta for defamation, the actress, considered a pioneer of the Metu movement in India, pushed herself into a corner financially and emotionally.

Tanushree Dutta told Rediff, “It is very difficult for me emotionally, psychologically and financially.”

Tanushree, isn’t it ironic that you were sued for defamation the day Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison for a sexual offense?

It is ironic that I am fighting for another level of chaos in India, not only for the prevention of my personal loss but also to be full of legal threats to speak out against oppression and corruption.

It must be really hard on you.

It has been very difficult for me emotionally, psychologically and financially these 12 years since the violence on the set of Horn Ok Please in 2008.

I had been in a state of severe depression for many years because of the level of cunning cleverness, public humiliation and threats I had to endure.

Are you getting any support from the Hindi film fraternity?

No. Instead of getting justice and working in Bollywood, my primary source of income, I have been pushed into legal troubles by these people while everyone else watches the drama.

I will remember it and report it.

I feel that I have been abandoned by many people and I will return the favor when I come back to power. And I will do it.

What impact will this defamation have on the MeToo movement in the Indian entertainment industry?

What worries me most is that it can affect the next generation of women, girls, and boys, who are being taught about feminism, human rights, and empowerment.

I maintain my earlier conviction that when it comes to human rights, women’s safety, and anti-corruption, India still has a long way to go to capture America.

In India, many bad people call the shots and very few good people lend a helping hand.
