After the trailer of Ajay Devgn’s upcoming venture De De Pyaar De was released, the actor and the makers of the film were subjected to an outrage which was triggered by Alok nath’s presence in the film.
The veteran actor Alok stands accused of rape by TV producer Vinta Nanda and is currently out on bail in an ongoing court case. Now, it’s Tanushree Dutta, who was at the forefront of the Bollywood #Metoo movement, has lashed out at Ajay Devgn for working with rape-accused actor Alok Nath.
At the trailer launch event of the film, when producer Luv Ranjan was asked about casting Alok Nath, Ajay had intervened, saying, “This is not the right place to talk about it.” Later, the actor explained, the film was completed before the allegations surfaced against the concerned person.
It seems, this defense has not gone down well with Tanushree. In a scathing statement, she has raised questions as to why did the makers retain Alok Nath in the film?
Further, commenting on Alok Nath continuing to work in the industry despite the ongoing case against him, Dutta asserted that the makers should have re-shot the part of film featuring Alok Nath.
Before the poster and trailer, nobody knew that Alok Nath was in the film so if Ajay Devgn and the makers wanted they could have just quietly told him. She also slammed Ajay‘s response defending Nath’s presence in the film.
The 35-year-old actress added, “Bollywood is full of liars, show-offs and spineless hypocrites.’ “It’s time India wakes up and stops worshiping these morally bankrupt actors, directors, producers and others who clearly put on a facade of being family men just to promote their careers that they build on the tears of women like Vinta and others whom they silence using their muscle power,”
