Tanushree Dutta is a resident as well as a green card holder of the United States of America as of September 2018. In 2013 in an interview, Dutta said that she hit depression after being traumatized on the sets of “Horn OK” in 2008. This situation made her take a break and try recuperation using eastern spirituality. Initially, Tanushree stayed at an ashram for one and a half years but that did not help her situation. After that, she went to Ladakh where she learns some Buddhist meditation related breathing techniques. These techniques eventually brought back her out of depression.

The former Miss India said that she also learned some lessons from this experience and added “there is no enlightenment, nirvana, moksha in the ashrams… it’s all bullshit! Husbands abandoning wives, children leaving parents… this is not spirituality. You can seek spirituality by being with your family and doing your job…Someone who says he’s a guru – is he really enlightened? He hobnobs with politicians and celebrities instead. Despite a hundred self-proclaimed gurus, why do we have the maximum rapes and brutality here[India]”. Finally, she converted to Christianity.
Career / Awards & Achievements :-
Tanushree Dutta was firstly featured in Harry Anand’s pop music video titled “Saiyan Dil Mein Ana Rein” before competing in “Femina Miss India” pageant. Later on, in the year of 2014, she won the title of “Femina Miss India” and consequently represented India among 133 other countries at the pageant called “Miss Universe 2004” which was held in Quito, Equador. Dutta stood the 8th position and defeated the actress Gal Gadot who is known as “wonder woman (2017) who couldn’t make to the top 15 to that competition.
Tanushree Dutta made her acting debut in the year of 2005 by portraying the role “Sneha” in the Bollywood film called “Ashique Banaya Apne”. And was highly appreciated by the audience and was successful in the box office. She also was seen in the movie titled “chocolate” later that same year.
On 26 September 2018, after having been out of the Bollywood spotlight for so many years, she gave an interview to Zoom TV in which she accused Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of the film titled “Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss” in 2009. This declaration would be seen as the catalyst of the “Me Too” movement in India, similar to one which was happened in the U.S. a year earlier with Harvey Weinstein, in which more and more women from the entertainment industry would publicly announce high-profile individuals who had sexually harassed them.
Tanushree Dutta had first made the allegations against the actor Nana Patekar in 2008, filing a complaint with the Cine & TV Artists Association (CINTAA) but no action was taken as the case was considered a criminal case. The allegation was repeated in the year of 2013 in an interview, and again hugely ignored. It was not until her September 2018 statements that the CINTAA apologized to Tanushree, admitting that the “chief grievance of sexual harassment wasn’t even addressed[in 2008]” but added that since the case was more than three years old, they could not reopen that.
Janice Sequeira, a journalist, backed her allegations, claiming to be an eyewitness of the incident happened then. She also alleged that filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri had told her to remove her clothes and dance with the actor Irrfan Khan to act on the sets of the film called “Chocolate” (2005). She added, Khan and Sunil Shetty stood up for her during this episode. Agnihotri refuted all allegations and shared that it is an attempt to get publicity by former Miss India and to malign his image in a legal notice sent to her. The assistant director of Chocolate, Satyajit Gazmer, also dismissed Tanushree’s claims.
In another interview, Tanushree said, “He [Patekar] called the MNS party to bash up my car. He was behind every single thing and was supported by choreographer Ganesh Acharya.” In a video from 2008, which went viral on the internet, goons were seen thrashing Dutta’s car. A journalist named Pawan Bharadwaj was seen thrashing the car’s windshield with his camera, who later clarified that he attacked her car because he had a fight with Dutta’s team prior to the incident.
A defamation case was filed against Tanushree Dutta for her comments about the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena. Dutta was also served with two legal notices from Patekar and Agnihotri. Subsequently, on 6 October, she filed an FIR at Oshiwara police station against Patekar; director of Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss, Rakesh Sarang; choreographer Acharya and producer Sami Siddiqui.
On 13 October 2018, Ms. Dutta’s advocate Nitin Satpute submitted an application at the Oshiwara police station in Mumbai mentioning that actor Nana Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya, producer Samee Siddiqui, and director Rakesh Sarang be made to undergo narco-analysis, brain mapping, and lie detector tests.
Apart from all that, Tanushree went to us and took a sabbatical after the failure of her movie titled “ apartment” in the year of 2010. She also took a short course in New York Academy.
After one point she came back to India after having bitter experience in us and totally depended on her father financially.
