After Bollywood actor Tanushree Dutta recently opened up about being harassed by Nana Patekar on the sets of 2008 film Horn Ok Pleassss, the actor has found support in many celebrities from the film fraternity. Swara Bhasker, Richa Chadha, Raveena Tandon, Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Farhan Akhtar, Siddharth, Vir Das, Anurag Kashyap and Varun Grover among others have backed Tanushree. Joining them is Freida Pinto who was last seen in Love Sonia.

Taking a break from her regular posts, Freida on Wednesday posted a photo on her Instagram account which read, “I Believe Tanushree Dutta”. Along with it, she wrote, “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!”

She continued, “I dont 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 sounds 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.”

Appreciating the courage of the Ashiq Banaya Aapne actor, Frieda added, “I add my voice to the other voices coming out in support of Tanushrees 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 Tanushrees case- speaks up AGAIN) 10 years later, it doesnt 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,” wrote the 33-year-old actor.

Urging more people to come out in support of Tanushree, Frieda winded up her post with the words, “India – Stand Up, Speak Up. Dont 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 womans 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.”
