Tanushree Dutta’s allegations against Nana Patekar: All you need to know
Jump to navigation. Nana Patekar has been given a clean chit by the Oshiwara police in Mumbai, due to lack of evidence to support Tanushree Dutta's allegations of sexual harassment. Tanushree had claimed that Nana touched her inappropriately while shooting for a special song in Rakesh Sarang's Horn Ok Pleassss. However, The Indian Express quotes two eye-witnesses as telling the police that the two were several feet apart. Their statements played a crucial role in the police filing a B-summary report and concluding that Tanushree's complaint seemed "malicious and fake". An actress, who was an assistant to choreographer Ganesh Acharya at the time of the incident on March 26, , said in her statement to the police that Nana was being taught the steps.
Dutta accused Patekar of misbehaving with her verbally and physically while filming a dance number for the film. Acharya has since spoken to News18, in response to Tanushree's statement, but by and large, the news has been met with deafening silence from those most closely involved and implicated. Janice Sequeira has provided her own account of the events from that time:.
Over the last few months, countless celebrities have opened up about their experiences with sexual harassment and assault in entertainment industry. Though many parts of her story are already painfully public, the Aashiq Banaya Aapne actor, in a candid interview with News 18, opened up about being sexually abused and explained how the MeToo movement has made her feel. I was probably one of the first people in the history of this country in the media field to speak up and stand up. Everybody saw what happened but the memory and the popular perception of it is that Tanushree Dutta spoke up against harassment and then she was no more.
