Tanushree Dutta accuses Nana Patekar of harassing her on set

Tanushree Dutta accuses Nana Patekar of harassing her on set

Not just Nana Patekar but Tanushree Dutta also alleges that many big actors and filmmakers in the industry are like that, however, no one dares to speak about them because of fear of losing their opportunities.

The actress claimed that Patekar wanted to do an intimate scene with her in the song and when she refused to do it the veteran actor allegedly called members of a political party on the set to intimidate her. Tanushree was replaced by Rakhi Sawant after the actress made a decision to opt out. Similarly, she adds, even though everyone would gossip about Patekar's alleged attitude towards women, no publication picked up the story.

After Bollywood actor Tanushree Dutta alleged that Nana Patekar had sexually harassed her and set goons on her and her family in 2008, Nana has responded, denying he committed the alleged acts. Tanushree said that Nana Patekar abused and assaulted her, and 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". But Nana and Tanushree were shooting for the song amidst 400 people and hence he questioned as to how Nana will take advantage of someone in front of so many people.

The Jamshedpur-born actress had won the Miss India-Universe crown in 2004 and went on to make a successful debut in Bollywood with Ashiq Banaya Aapne the next year. She was last seen in the movie called Apartment in 2010.

In its May 30 issue, Outlook had done a cover story, #memum investigating prevalence of the casting couch in the Indian film industry.

Tanushree claims she was "slut shamed", and was called a "heroine who came and did a few item songs and bold kissing scenes". The industry never stood up for me, they never condemned it.

Tanushree also told, in hollywood, "Me too" campaign started only recently but 10 years back itself she open up on such behavior. But these things never take surface because they are PR packaged very well. She was shooting what was supposed to be her solo song (later performed by Rakhi Sawant) when Nana Patekar was on set.
