Bollywood actress accuses Nana Patekar of sexual harassment

Adjust Comment Print

The actress speaking in a TV channel slammed one of the most respected and renowned actors of Bollywood, Nana Patekar. Dutta also claimed that Patekar called people working for the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, who intimidated her and damaged her auto. He said, "Tanushree is saying that Nathni Utaro [song] was a solo dance that she rehearsed for".

Following the report of Tanushree Dutta questioning the impact of #Metoo movement in Bollywood, alleging that Nana Patekar had sexually harassed her on the sets of Horn "Ok" Pleassss, Ganesh Acharya stated that Nana Patekar was a "very sweet person" who could "never do that".

Tanushree had also claimed that it was due to her that Ganesh was enrolled as a choreographer for the film but Ganesh refuted that and said that the director and producer were his friends and because of his friendship, he got the film. When Tanushree's parents reached the sets to pick her up, her auto was attacked and the windshield was broken.

The actress was of the belief that the #MeToo movement was not likely to reach India until people acknowledged what had happened to her on a film set 10 years ago. Tanushree said that though she spoke about it then as well, no one came forward in her support.

Trump Pursues Trade Deals in Asia, Europe Amid Frostiness With China
The US started negotiations with South Korea a year ago , following Mr Trump's criticism of the 2012 deal as a "one-way street". President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in have signed the first major agreement of Trump's trade agenda.

Adding further about the incidents from the sets of Horn "Ok" Pleassss, Tanushree added, "Post the incident on the sets of Horn OK Please, Nana Patekar called up this political party who has a reputation of lynching and causing damages on the sets. This I hope encourages people", Dutta said. "There were around 400 people on the set that day".

In a recent time, many actresses have discussed about such incidents openly, exposing the dark side of industry but Tanushree Datta accusing the ace actor has surely taken everyone by shock. #NanaPatekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya and a man (who I later found was the producer) were having a conversation, while 50-odd dancers sat waiting. The actor also blamed him for beating and molesting women and female actors.

Meanwhile, two other Bollywood stars were asked about the controversy. According to his quotes that he has given to the media recently, Sarang has claimed that Tanushree Dutta misjudged everything including Nana's encouragement. Aamir Khan said something similar - that without knowing the veracity of the issue he could not comment.
