Earlier this year, Tanushree Dutta had said that she was being harassed, but that she had not committed suicide.

Trying to get back into the industry.

She wrote on social media that ‘I am trying to restart my career and people are also interested in working with me. But these Bollywood mafias are not getting it, they are advising people not to work with me. I am getting offers for films as well as web projects. Some even signed but saw that none of them materialized. Suddenly, the producer or director goes into silent mode, or the sponsor disappears.
