Actor alleges sexual harassment; gets support and silence

Tanushree Dutta had claimed that everyone in the industry was aware of Nana Patekar’s misbehaviour with many women

Salman Khan was also asked about it at an event and his reply was on similar lines.

Bollywood actor, director and producer Farhan Akhtar was amongst the first ones in Bollywood to come out in support of Tanushree.

After Farhan's tweet, several other members of the film industry found their voice. However, their recent actions have caused serious damage to their popularity with many even calling them real-life villains.

Actor Nana Patekar has made a decision to send a legal notice to Tanushree Dutta following her allegations that the he sexually harassed her on the sets of a film in 2008.

In a thread she described what happened.

Tanushree has alleged that Nana asked choreographer Ganesh Acharya to include new dance steps in the song so that he could touch her inappropriately.

Taking to Twitter earlier this Friday morning Twinkle Khanna actor turned author tweeted about that before judging or shaming Tanushree Dutta a working environment without harassment and intimidation is a fundamental right and by speaking up this fearless woman helps pave the way towards that very goal for all of the superstars.

Modric said: "He's my friend, I was not bothered by his absence, I won the prize but Mohamed (Salah ) and Cristiano are great". Stay with us for all the updates .

Amid all this, Tanushree seems to be far from done as she has now revealed details of a rather unpleasant experience she faced on the sets of her debut film "Chocolate: Deep Dark Secrets" in 2005.

She narrates that her co-actor in the movie, actor Irrfan Khan, was shooting a solo scene and it was a close-up of the actor. It was not even my shot. I am not sure if I saw Nana go in her vanity van.

Actor Kunal Kapoor said, "Whether it's a man or a woman, just because someone is good at their work or charitable, doesn't mean they aren't capable of harassment".

We are absolutely horrified to know that this actually happened. He always tells me that "Every time you promise me, but you don't come there". He had to look at me and give some expressions. Mujhe acting aati hai (I know how to act).' Suneil Shetty also spoke up. He was also there, he heard it and he got offended by it. "I am still hopeful that people will do the right thing", she added. "So when we filed the police report, they filed a counter complaint and because of the counter FIR, my dad, hair dresser and spot boy had to go through so much harassment over the next couple of years", she recounted.

Mumbai: Tanushree Dutta has reacted to Nana Patekar laughing off her allegations of his misbehaviour against her in 2008 and described his response as a "fear and intimidation tactic".

"We are in the process of sending a legal notice to Tanushree Dutta, as she has made false allegations and has spoken untruths. We will send the notice later today which will be basically a notice seeking apology for her statements".
