Bhubaneswar: After expressing her resentment over the poster of upcoming Odia movie Mr Kanheiya’, sprinter Dutee Chand has reportedly faced the wrath of actor Tatwa Prakash Satapathy, popularly known as Papu Pom Pom.
An audio of Papu Pom Pom, who is in lead role in the movie scheduled to release on September 1, giving defamatory remarks on the athlete is doing the round the social media.
In the audio, Papu Pom Pom was giving objectionable comments against the sprinter over her same sex relationship and her ‘bitter’ relationship with family members.
“Dutee Chand should better not talk about women’s dignity. She should mind her own business and handle the controversies surrounding her same sex relationship. She is going against the culture of the state. Dutee should not talk about women’s self-respect when she is complaining about her own mother and sister in public,” the actor said in the audio.
In response, Dutee Chand said, “ I am deeply hurt by Papu Bhai’s comments on my personal life. I had just opposed the concept of the poster which depicts that women are slaves to men. I did not take anyone’s name and urged the production house to remove it. But the actor took it personally and got vindictive.”
“..It is my personal choice whom should I marry. When I have not commented anything on the actor’s personal life, he should not be interfering in my private matter. He commented about my financial background also. What I am today is because of my hardwork and dedication,”she added.
Dutee further alleged that a few persons are calling her up on behalf of the actor for the last four to five days and threatening her of dire consequence. The athlete said she will file a defamation suit against the comedian soon.
“They call me up introducing themselves as fans of the actor and abuse me in filthy language. I can not even use the words in public. I am going to take up the the matter with police”she warned.
Earlier today, the Bhubaneswar Mahila Police served a notice to film producer Sitaram Agarwal following a complaint lodged by social activist Linkan Subudhi on August 18.
