Tanushree Dutta slams Ajay Devgn, calls him spineless hypocrites

Tanushree Dutta, who set the trend of #MeToo movement in India, slammed Ajay Devgn for working with Alok Nath, in his upcoming film ‘De De Pyaar De’. "Tinsel town is full of liars, show-offs and spineless hypocrites. And it seems by a large public consensus that the sign post is pointing currently at Ajay Devgn," said Tanushree. Last year, Ajay Devgn tweeted, "If anyone has wronged even a single woman, neither ADF nor I will stand for it."

"During the #MeToo movement in India, the actor had tweeted and sworn never to work with those accused and now in a surprising and convenient turn of events is working with rape and harassment accused Alok Nath and supporting him to make a comeback to Bollywood," Tanushree Dutta said in her statement, reported IANS.

Last year, producer Vinda Nanda accused Alok Nath of sexual assault. Tanushree Dutta said: "Nobody even knew before the posters and trailers that Alok Nath is in the film, so if Ajay and the makers wanted they could have just quietly replaced him and re-shot his portions (which is barely 10-15 days for character actors in Bollywood), and given Vinta Nanda the respect she deserves as well as several other women who were troubled by this guy, but no."

Ajay Devgn drew the flak for working with the Sanskari Babu in 'De De Pyaar De'. Speaking at the trailer launch of the movie in Mumbai, Ajay Devgn said: "This is not the right place to talk about it. And jinki aap baat kar rahe hai woh film uske pehle complete hui (the film was completed before the allegations surfaced against the concerned person)," reported PTI.
