Nana Patekar has found himself in the eye of a storm after Tanushree Dutta went ahead and accused him of sexual harassment. If you are not in the know, the actress who is back from the US has spoken at length about how Nana misbehaved with her on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss. She said that he dismissed the choreographers and was insistent on doing an intimate dance move with her. She refused and was later harassed by some political goons on behest of the actor. Of course, the veteran has rubbished her claims and has also sent her a legal notice demanding an apology but his infamous temperament is coming in his way. The same that co-veteran Dimple Kapadia had once termed 'Obnoxious.'
In fact, after further digging we have unearthed another interview where he had opened up about the allegations of him being difficult and interfering. When quizzed about the same, he had told DNA exclusively, "In the past, my help has been misconstrued as interference. If you're doing it right and I still insist on imposing my view/style, that's interference. But if I see a camera position is wrong and will ruin the scene, then I tell the director. The other day after Sharad Pawar's felicitation programme, when I went over to Raj Thackeray's for a chat, he too said, "So many big banners want to work with you, but they're afraid." How can I be responsible for people's perception of me? If someone does something wrong, I unhesitatingly point it out. Even if they're really well-known big names. They've acted stupid at that time and I'm forced to point it out. "
Not just that, he had also opened up about how doing slapstick comedy films is not something he looks down upon. That and whoever he has been asked to shake a leg with. "It doesn't make any difference if it's Bindu or Sunny Leone. At that time, I just imagine I'm with the world's most beautiful woman and perform. I never judge people and allow that to colour my equation with them. If Sunny's done porn films, that's her lookout. Who am I to say anything?"
It doesn't end at that. He was also asked if he is touch with his Manisha Koirala--who he was once seeing--and Deepti Naval--who he was also linked with--he had said, "They're both in a good, comfortable space and happy. Why would I do anything to disturb or hurt them? Of course, if I meet them, I won't avoid or ignore them.For people, these may be just affairs, but at the end of the day, they gave me some really special and happy moments."
