Mumbai: Actor Tanushree Dutta has been making headlines after levelling sexual harassment allegations against Nana Patekar on the sets on the movie Horn Ok Please in 2008. 

Her admission has the film industry and media as well as fans divided over the issue of sexual harassment at the workplace and the right way to deal with it. Bollywood biggies such as Sonam Kapoor, Aamir Khan, Farhan Akhtar and others have voiced their support for the actor. 

But it seems the flurry of activities induced by her admission have shocked Dutta as she released a statement about taking a break from her 'movement'. Here is what it said:

My throat is swollen, voice down and I'm unwell because of the exhaustion of the last few days.
the last 8 years that I've been on the spiritual path regardless of which part of the world I am, I mostly prefer to live in solitude, silence, prayer and meditation and have gotten used to that peaceful lifestyle.
only come out and interact socially and even speak only when the need is for work or other social commitments. But last few days I've had to go all out talking and interacting with press up to 16 hours a day for the sake of this movement and it has drained me out a bit.
I'm resting to regain some strength while some other developments take place in the background. I will be back in a few days and join the fight again. This is not just a news story anymore my friends. This is a war that I have been called to partake in for not only my sake but for the sake for countless millions.
It is my dharma; my duty as a human being

Meanwhile, The Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) has also come out to extend “support and solidarity” to Tanushree Dutta for “coming out fearlessly about the harassment endured at the workplace." Tanushree hasn't received any legal notice from Nana Patekar yet. She told news agency ANI, "I haven't received any notice from Nata Patekar. These threats are put so that others like me would be scared to come forward. Anyone with a similar experience shouldn't worry about these kinds of intimidation tactics. The whole nation will support them."
