Freida Pinto supports Tanushree with a strong message

3rd October 2018

Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar's brawl is catching up fire. Every single celeb was asked to take sides in whatever event they were spotted. While many came forward to support Tanushree actresses like Sonam Kapoor, Daisy Shah and Twinkle Khanna raised their voice for the 'Aashiq Banaya Aapne' actress. But it would be too early to come to a certain conclusion until we don't hear the accused in the matter which is Nana. As of now, Hollywood actress Freida Pinto came forward to support Tanushree as she posted a picture of the font that says "I Believe Tanushree" and captioned it with a long elaborated message that indicates her support to the actress.

Her post read "Today, I interrupt my feed for a bit from all the fashion week poses to stand by what I truly Believe. I Believe Tanushree Dutta! I don't need to know her personally, neither have been present on that horrendous day she got bullied, abused both sexually and psychologically, intimidated and shut down in order to corroborate her story. However, I do know what Truth, Hurt and Abuse sound like. The same way millions of people in the world know that Dr. Christine Blasey- Ford is NOT a Liar or an attention seeking, tantrum throwing overgrown child.

I add my voice to the other voices coming out in support of Tanushree's bravery because God knows this is not going to be easy for you, Tanushree. But what you have done is monumental and important and it has to shake the very core of a nation and an ideology that for too long has gotten away with heinous crimes against women and where the ugliness of misogyny has dominated the rights and suppressed any voice that has dared to speak up.

Also, even if someone speaks up ( and in Tanushree's case- speaks up AGAIN) 10 years later, it doesn't dilute or nullify a factual, verified, double verified truth. Her story is not a carton of milk that expires after a few days, ready to be discarded. So trolls : please do what you do best but it is not going to change the Truth.

India - Stand Up, Speak Up. Don't look to just your superstars to speak up. Be your own role models and follow the voice of your conscience. Follow the truth and stand by a woman's right to be her own wind keeper. You may just end up setting an example for many others who probably need your grit and courage to speak up. I SUPPORT TANUSHREE DUTTA." she concluded.
