It was like people were hearing me, but were not listening.
Speaking to Zoom TV, Dutta alleged that Patekar would trouble her on the set and asked to be included as part of an "intimate step" in what was supposed to be Dutta's solo dance number.
Recounting the incident and its aftermath, she claimed, "When I tried to escape they called the media, they called some people to mob lynch and attack my vehicle". She complained that no one supported her, including the producer. Talking about Nana, she said that everyone in industry knows about his indecent behaviour towards the actresses, but all are tight-lipped. Else, had her voice been registered back then, Tanushree's story could be the initial of exposing casting couch.
Tanushree Dutta accuses Nana Patekar of harassing her on set
During the same time, in an interview to Zee News, the film's producer Sami Siddiqui had said, "She behaved in a completely unacceptable manner".
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". Our democracy has survived for so many years in Indiaa The credit for that goes to the Congress alone. Using the same vein of thought as Nana, Rakesh said that no one would try to harass a woman in front of hundreds of people. "Will anybody take advantage in front of 400 people?" Reportedly, choreographer Ganesh Acharya was also dragged into this controversy. "When I was called for rehearsal I was told that Nana ji was also there in the song". He said that "something" did happen that day because the "shooting was stalled" because of some "misunderstanding". The actor also blamed him for beating and molesting women and female actors.
Patekar, who had denied the claims at a press conference when Tanushree raised the issue in 2008, remained unreachable despite several attempts to contact him for his version of what had happened.
A decade ago, Bollywood was rocked by allegations of sexual misconduct against veteran actor Nana Patekar. According to his quotes that he has given to the media recently, Sarang has claimed that Tanushree Dutta misjudged everything including Nana's encouragement.
Paul Pogba says exactly what Manchester United fans need to hear
Sanchez was unarguably one of the best players in the Premier League during his spell with the north London based outfit. I think opponents get scared when they see Manchester United constantly attacking.
