As per media reports, Tanushree Dutta will soon be bringing forth stories of sexual harassment in Bollywood on screen with her upcoming short film, Inspiration.
The film will be released online on 8th March on the occasion of International Women’s Day, says an Indian newspaper article.
The report quoted her as saying:
“It deals with the issue of willful exploitation of young newcomers in showbiz or any other field where they don’t have mentors or guidance.”
Explaining further if it will talk of a true episode, she simply said: “It is a new format where reality meets fiction.”
Talking about how the project came about, she said that she was approached by an online content platform, which has also produced the film.
She plays the guardian angel, who inspires girls to make the right decision.
She claims that she wrote the dialogues, inspired by her own insight and understanding on the matter.
It may be recalled that last year Tanushree started the #MeToo movement when she called out Nana Patekar for sexual harassment on the set of her 2009 film, Horn OK Pleassss.
The aftermath was that a number Bollywood biggies like Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl, Rajat Kapoor, Chetan Bhagat, Rajkumar Hirani, Alok Nath, Anu Malik and Kailash Kher were accused of sexual misconduct.
Meanwhile, Tanushree was invited as a guest speaker to Harvard Business School. The special session was curated by journalist Pankaj Pachauri.
