Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar Controversy

  • 02 Oct 2018

Bollywood has been buzzing with controversy ever since Tanushree Dutta recollected and spoke on her past allegations in 2008 against Nana Patekar, which was also the reason behind her quitting the industry. The topic came back in the spotlight when the actress, in a recent interview, revealed why she has chosen to quit the industry and why she feels the #MeToo movement would never hit India. 

Tanushree called out Nana Patekar for sexually harassing her 10 years ago on the set of her film ‘Horn Ok Pleasss’. She also took names like Ganesh Acharya, Vivek Agnihotri, producer Sami Siddiqui. She claimed Nana insisted on shooting an intimate song sequence in the film, even though it was not mentioned in her contract. Her refusal didn’t go easy on Nana, which led him to call up mobs to heckle her on the sets. On these allegations, Acharya replied saying that he cannot confirm to Tanushree being harassed by a mob as claimed by her.

Breaking his silence on the matter, Nana Patekar refuted all the allegations against him and have given the following statement to the media: 

“I am shooting in Jaisalmer and as soon as I am back in Mumbai on the 7th or 8th of October, I will hold a press in Mumbai, where you can ask me anything you want," he said. "I want to look into the camera and answer every question. You can ask me whatever you want to know about this. I have no reason to hide."
Following this matter, Bollywood celebrities like Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Parineeti Chopra, Swara Bhasker, Richa Chadha among several others have come out in support of former beauty queen and actress Tanushree Dutta.
