    Right after Tanushree Dutta came out in the open leveling allegations against Nana Patekar that he sexually harassed her on the sets of Horn OK Please in 2008, several other actors, comedians, musicians and writers have been accused of sexual harassment and rape. In the wake of all the multiple cases, the Producers Guild of India released a statement by saying that it will extend the support to the #MeToo movement in India by calling out and reporting sexual harassment whenever it occurs in the industry.
