It is a time of revolution in the Hindi film industry. When she levelled sexual harassment allegations against Nana Patekar, Tanushree Dutta started a very important debate - one that is only gaining momentum as we speak. While many are rooting for the actress and lauding her for being brave, yet others are calling it a mere publicity gimmick. There has been an eye-witnesses’ account supporting Dutta’s story, but there is also another eye-witness denying her allegations. Sattyajit Gazmer, who was an Assistant Director of Tanushree's film, Chocolate, has slammed Tanushree for levelling charges against film director, Vivek Agnihotri.
For those not in the know, Tanushree had also accused Vivek Agnihotri, who directed Chocolate, of misbehaviour. The actress, in an interview, had revealed that while shooting for a song in the above mentioned movie, she was told by the director to remove her clothes. However, Gazmer, who was a chief witness on the spot, has a different story to narrate. The assistant director says, “In the interview, Tanushree and the media has made it sound as if she was asked to strip, which is absolutely false.”
While narrating the incident, Gazmer reveals that the actress was never asked to remove her clothes. Instead she was just asked to get rid of the bathrobe that she was wearing only to get an over-the-shoulder shot.
Since Gazmer’s father was getting operated while all this happened, he could only present his account now. In a Facebook post, he has provided a detailed account of what happened that day, Not just that, he has also spoken about how Tanushree got the project and what happened post that shot. Here’s what his post says:
Gazmer has also challenged that he is ready to reiterate the story in front of Tanushree and the cameras. The man has slammed the media as well. While, this doesn’t really have a direct connect to Tanushree and Nana’s controversy, do you think this will affect the credibility of those concerned? Let us know your views in the comments below...
