Tanushree Dutta makes SHOCKING revelations about Nana Patekar takes potshots at Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth

In an interview with Zoom TV, Tanushree Dutta alleged that in 2009, Nana Patekar had behaved indecently with her on the sets of his film "Horn Ok Pleassss". Amitabh Bachchan outright refused to comment on the matter; Aamir Khan offered a diplomatic response; choreographer Ganesh Acharya, who worked on the 2008 film in question, defended Nana Patekar by telling News18, "I can confirm that nothing this sort of happened". The former Miss India took up the incident that happened 10 years ago and bared it all. Change can only happen when we are actively involved bringing about the change and that is what I have been doing and not because I wanted to be smarter and somebody who starts movements. Despite the fact that members of the media were present on set, no one stood by her and the actress was left to fend for herself.

Tanushree had wondered why established stars such as Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth continue to work with Patekar despite his well-known history of inappropriate behaviour towards women. And now, the actress has come out to claim that Nana Patekar had tried misbehaving with her during the dance and had tried to grab her and push her.

"I could see Tanushree on set, visibly upset about something".

He will not play again in 2018 after signing a 5-year, $137 million deal with the 49ers during the offseason. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will need season-ending surgery on his injured left knee.

During the interview, she also alleged that the actor had the tacit support of the film's makers. "Just because I was new to the film industry, whether or not it was required, let's do an intimate scene with her", she added. "When I was called for rehearsal I was told that Nana ji was also there in the song". Elaborating on the incident she experienced with him on the sets of Horn OK Please, 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".

Accused of sexual harassment by actress Tanushree Dutta, Nana Patekar remains defiant. "Whether this has happened, that is for people to investigate it". I want them to suffer the consequences of their actions.

Meanwhile, two other Bollywood stars were asked about the controversy. "What do you mean sexual harassment? He got the job because of me and he made a decision to back stab me, of course he will support him (Nana Patekar) as he was equally complicit in the harassment". Indian actors such as Radhika Apte, Richa Chadda, Swara Bhasker and Konkona SenSharma have spoken about it, without revealing names.
