Priyanka had quoted Farhan Akhtar statement in her tweet, saying that the world ought to believe the survivors of such harassment. Tanushree Dutta, in an interview with Zoom, responded to Priyanka's referring to her as a "survivor" and said, "Well, it's amazing. She (Priyanka) has finally decided to join the bandwagon. It's probably a smart thing to do at this point of time. But I just want people to know that I am not going to be reduced to a survivor. I have a name, I have a story and I have this truth that I am trying to get out because it's not for me but for people who will come forward in the generations to come."
