Ganesh Acharya This is not the first time that the choreographer has faced harassment charges. A female choreographer has accused National Award-winning choreographer Ganesh Acharya of depriving her of work. During the MeToo movement in India, Tanushree Dutta had also lashed out at Ganesh Acharya. She has filed a complaint against Ganesh at the Amboli police station in Mumbai and Maharashtra State Commission for Woman. In her complaint, the 33-year-old choreographer also mentioned she was asked to give a commission from her income to Ganesh Acharya, who is also the general secretary of Indian Film & Television Choreographers Association. He has to his credit many other hit Bollywood songs in movies like Simmba, Zero, Padmaavat, Sanju and Judwaa 2. The choreographer added that she was also ‘forced to watch adult videos’.
