    About ten years ago while shooting an item song(google it's meaning ) Nana had apparently groped Tanushree while Nana maintains that he was merely doing what choreographer had told him. They had big fight on set and in his vanity van . She accused both Nana and choreographer of harassing her and was promptly kicked out of song(she wasn't Heroine of the movie, she was in it just for that song).
    Now after ten years(she had left film industry) she accused Nana for sexual harassment in light of #MeToo movement and it opened whole new investigation.
    Bollywood has split in two sides supporting both. Some say her complaint is genuine while some say it is publicity stunt by washed up actress who don't get work anymore.
    Personally I was on Nana's side as I have actually met him and he has kind of saintly image considering all the work he has done for poor farmers but apparently Tanushree has eye witnesses and I no longer know what to believe.
    This incident had started series of accusation against some very high profile people in Bollywood, politics and other places. It is gonna be interesting to see what happens in next week. We might even see Minister of BJP getting arrested next week.

    I don't think anyone ever makes a #metoo statement for publicity.
    Its not like they want to get death threats or have it suggested that they're a slut or that they deserve to be assaulted if they've ever had a sex life. Plus the celebrity is usually either too minor to survive that controversy or bad press. Or big enough not to need a political publicity stunt.

    Well bear in mind witnesses usually have no proof other than claiming that what one person claims is true. In the ends its claims.

    One eye witness that has come forward was spot boy on that set.
    He didn't actually see Nana groping Tanushree. He however witnessed them having a huge fight over it while everybody on set was telling her not to antagonize Nana, Choreographer and Director of the movie if she wants her job.
    Some people who were present on set says that it probably comes to intentions. What Tanushree thought was inappropriate groping was probably just dance steps done by Nana who had no malicious intent.
    Well case is court now. Next week will have more detailed story.

    And yet witness testimony is one of the major causes for convictions. No one makes a witness testimony just randomly. This is the real deal and when whatever allegation got confirmed by third parties its not really looking good for the perp.

    General aspect. Havent read this particular case

    Yes I know, I just dont agree with it. Personally I would never convict on testimony, not just for sex crimes, but any crimes.

    Unless the testimonies had additional evidence, like independent testimonies knowing details that would be impossible to know, I know they have not talked to each other and I know those details to be true for a fact.

    But if it were just a matter of credibility of word vs credibility of word, nope, I could never convict on it and would hold out.

    But is it like that? Word vs Word rarely leads anywhere, sure. But Word vs Word and a third party supporting one of them is another case.

    Does that third party has anything other than his word to support the original claim which had no proof other than his word?

    What else than their word are they supposed to have? One of the reasons so many people install dash-cams in their cars is because in cases of unclear accidents on the road, one drivers word on its own is often pit against the words of 2 words from the other side. And while only the opposing driver has to explain himself to clear the question of guilt, its the second person in the car who confirms that story - leaving the other side at an disadvantage due to not having such a witness testimony.
