Saying that he believed her, he tweeted, “This thread is very telling. @janiceseq85 was there at the time of the incident being debated today. Even when #TanushreeDutta had career concerns to keep quiet 10 years ago she did not & her story hasn’t changed now. Her courage should be admired, not her intention questioned.”
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Farhan was last seen in 2017 film Lucknow Central, which failed to perform well at the box office. He will next star in Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink, which shall mark Priyanka Chopra’s return to Bollywood after three years.
