The Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar controversy is taking a new turn as the police have got involved. The first case that rolled out the red carpet for the #MeToo movement in India has turned legal with an official FIR registered with the Mumbai police against the actor. We last reported that the cops recorded her statement against the Housefull 4 actor and now, it is reported that Tanushree has listed down Daisy Shah as one of the many witnesses of the case.
Why Daisy? Well, if you’ll don’t remember, let us help you brush off some dust from your memory. Back in 2008, Daisy was on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss. Wait, so was she an actress in the movie as well? Not really. Daisy made her Bollywood debut in 2014, opposite Salman Khan in Jai Ho. Then how is she involved in the case you ask? Well, Daisy was a dancer before she turned into an actress. When Horn Ok Pleassss was being shot, Daisy was assisting Ganesh Acharya.
Pinkvilla reported that Tanushree stated Daisy stood witness to Nana attempting to touch Tanushree during the rehearsals. Daisy had complained to Acharya about it. Instead of taking any action, Ganesh reportedly asked Daisy to keep quiet about it. Since Daisy’s name has been added to the witness list, she will be summoned to answer police queries. Daisy will have to recollect the whole incident and prepare herself to answer some questions.
The #MeToo movement in India is finally setting Bollywood on fire as newer names are popping up and more accusations are made. We hope action is taken against perpetrators and this movement helps the industry to form necessary rules to make it a better place to work in.
