‘Feminist’ Anushka Sharma to produce web series based on rape accused Tarun Tejpal’s novel

Anushka Sharma had in an interview in 2015 spoken staunchly about the Hindi film industry's double standards and sexism.

Actress-producer Anushka Sharma will reportedly be rolling out a web series for Amazon’s online streaming platform under her production banner, Clean Slate Company, which will be based on journalist-author Tarun Tejpal’s book, The Story of My Assassins. According to reports, shooting for the show is currently on in Delhi.

Ironically, Anushka who claims to be a ‘feminist’ and an ‘idealist’ is set to produce a web series which is based on Tarun Tejpal’s novel who was the former editor-in-chief of Tehelka magazine and was accused by his colleague of molesting her. In November 2013, he stepped down as editor for six months after a female colleague accused him of sexual assault. He was arrested on November 30th, 2013 and is currently on bail since July 1st, 2014.

Anushka is, in fact, the same ‘idealist’ who had, in a media address in October last year, post the success of her movie ‘Sui Dhaaga: Made in India’ schooled co-actor Varun Dhawan on questioning the timing for the discussion of the Tanushree Dutta sexual harassment case, whereby Dutta had alleged of being sexually harassed by her co-actor Nana Patekar at her workplace. Varun had said that the fact we are discussing the issue after 10 years from when it happened is quite sad. He said, “The biggest thing is that it happened in 2008 and we are talking about it in 2018, that’s I think not a good sign for anyone”.

However, Anushka interrupted him immediately and mentioned that it doesn’t matter when are we discussing the issue, the fact that the problem exists is important and not the time. She said, “Don’t question those things that why is it happening so late.. it is not right! If Justice is not served, it can happen anytime”, she asserted.

Moreover, Anushka Sharma had in an interview with Anupama Chopra in 2015 spoken staunchly about the Hindi film industry’s double standards and sexism. For all her strong opinions, calling out such double-standards and hypocrisy, Anushka said that she is often referred to as an ‘activist’. She was then too lauded for her womanism.

However, for a woman who had once come across as a ‘feminist’ and an ‘idealist’, as she chose to call herself, and as the so-called ‘activist’ for standing up for victims like Tanushree Dutta, has now gone ahead to endorse a rape accused by producing a web series based on his novel reeks of nothing but hypocrisy.
