Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta, who had led the Me Too campaign in India, is back to doing what she loves the most. You will soon see her in a Hindi film along with actor Karan Singh Grover (KSG). More details about the new project are not handy, as the shoot may start sometime in the rains this year. Tanushree has reportedly signed on the dotted lines. Randeep Hooda might complete the cast.
Tanushree, famous for early 2000 films like Aashiq Banaya Aapne (2005), Bhagam Bhag (2006) and Dhol (2007), had quit B-town a decade ago and moved to the United States of America. Her last outing was the horror film Apartment in 2010.
She had returned home last year and in an interview, she levelled severe sexual misconduct allegations against senior film actor Nana Patekar. She claimed that he had misbehaved with her during the song shoot of their film Horn Ok Pleassss in 2009). This had led to the Me Too movement in Bollywood.
Tanushree preferred Bollywood arclights over an IT job in the US. Ever since the media was abuzz about her return to the silver screen, she had claimed to have been in touch with several filmmakers both in Mumbai and down south. A green card holder, Tanushree has undergone a total body transformation. She now looks like a million bucks.
Tanushree's younger sister Ishita Dutta is also a film face. She had started as a TV actress and has also done the film Drishyam (2015) with Ajay Devgn.
If Tanushree's new project does fructify (considering the whole industry is under a COVID-19 cloud), it will also mark the film return of erstwhile small screen superstar Karan Singh Grover. His cine journey had been under a cloud with three of his films getting stuck (two have not seen the light of day, and the third was directly streamed to OTT).
KSG has again tasted success with his OTT release, the ZEE5 show Qubool Hai 2.0. He had begun his film career opposite Bollywood actress and wife Bipasha Basu in Alone (2015). He later smelt box office success with Hate Story 3 the same year.
