Tanushree Dutta recently penned an open latter slaming Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Rakul Preet for working with Alok Nath who was accused of rape by Vinita Ninta last year during the #MeToo controversy. In her open letter, Tanushree called the film industry “full of liars, showoffs and spineless hypocrites.”
The actress also slammed Ajay and wrote, “Overrated actors and human beings who have created a clout by clever PR machinery and careful manipulation of public sentiments, old stuffy morons who can’t tell the difference between what’s right and wrong and what is the need of the hour!”
She had even called him “morally bankrupt and a spineless hypocrite”. Now, Ajay has responded to Tanushree’s allegations in an official statement.
Ajay said, “When the entire #MeToo Movement happened, I along with many of my film industry colleagues categorically expressed that I respect every single woman at the work place and I would not stand for any unfairness or atrocity against them. Nothing about my stand has changed.”
“This film was supposed to be an October 2018 release. The shoot of the film got over by last September. The portions with Mr. Alok Nath were canned by August in Manali.
The said portions were shot over 40 days across various sets and an outdoor location with a combination of over 10 actors. By the time the allegations came out (in October 2018) the actors in the film including me had already started work on other films.
