Tanushree has been speaking a lot about how Bollywood is dominated by these senior actors who oppress and harass newcomers, especially women in the industry. The producers, meanwhile, called the media for publicity. She alleged him of being abusive and rude to women, adding to the statement, she said that he has always been disrespectful towards female actors. She felt uncomfortable to an extent that she had to opt out of the song. Ten years ago, he had expressed surprise at the charges and said, "Tanushree is my daughter's age and I have no clue what made her say such things about me".

Dutta also said that popular actors have worked with Patekar despite knowing about his alleged mistreatment of actresses and named Akshay Kumar and Rajnikanth. But instead of discussing her past films or acting performances, the actor had asked, "Deti hai kya". "So, my question is, 'Who is going to believe these hypocrites?' These are the people who stand up and raise their voice against women empowerment", she had said. "What she didn't expect was the aggression shown by the producers after", she wrote in her tweets. When she arrived on sets, she was told the shooting has been stalled because of Tanushree.

She opened up about an incident on the set of Horn "Ok" Pleassss in 2008. The shocking revelation is also the fact that nobody has ever spoken about it, and it's not just Nana Patekar but also the case with many other actors, as Tanushree claims. "Later, she said, a lewd dance step was introduced on the insistence of #NanaPatekar, so he could touch her inappropriately". Nana Patekar was seen in the Rajinikanth-starrer Kaala recently. "If such big stars will keep working with these culprits then there's no hope for any movement to happen", she was quoted as saying. My approach is like an American in a way, so I am okay with talking about it.

She also added that most actors in Bollywood have an extremely efficient PR management which takes care of the information that goes into the public domain.

Further adding about this culture which prevails in the entire Bollywood, Tanushree quipped, "The entire industry saw what happened but there was not one word of condemnation from anybody".
