Tanushree Dutta has created a stir after returning to India from the US after many years. She has spoken openly about how Nana Patekar harassed her on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss. Tanushree was roped in for a special item song in the film. It seems Nana Patekar sent away the choreographer and insisted on showing the moves to Tanushree himself. It seems he told the makers that he wanted to do an intimate dance with her. Tanushree had alleged misbehaviour and walked off from the sets. Later, goons from a regional political party harassed her family. The actress on her return has said that the incident left her traumatised and she left the industry.
Actors like Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar, Richa Chaddha, Farhan Akhtar and Priyanka Chopra have come forward in her support. In a media statement, Tanushree has spoken about how no one supported her and Bollywood only looks up when Hollywood initiates a #MeToo movement. Nana Patekar's lawyer Rajendra Shirodkar told India Today that they will "initiate appropriate legal proceedings including filing a complaint for defamation". Farah Khan put up a picture on Instagram of the whole Housefull 4 team going to Jaisalmer for a song shoot. Tanushree's media representative said in a statement, "Tanushree is upset about two things. Farah's Instagram post has appalled her. Being a woman herself, Farah has made her stand very clear by going ahead with Nana for the Housefull shoot."
The statement also says, "A man who is claiming to be Nana Patekar's advocate is calling up people close to Tanushree and media houses alike, threatening to drag Tanushree to court for speaking up. Even after ten years, Nana Patekar is still harassing Tanushree Dutta with legal threats and intimidation tactics while the whole world is watching." Stay tuned to BollywoodLife for more updates!
