Everyone knew, said nothing: Tanushree Dutta accuses Nana Patekar of sexual harassment

Tanushree Dutta Names Nana Patekar As Alleged Harasser 10 Years Ago Says'Everyone Knew Did Nothing

The actress accused veteran Bollywood star Nana Patekar saying that during the filming of her 2008 film Horn Ok Please, she was pushed and intimidated by Nana Patekar on the sets. She said that even though the insiders have been in the know of his alleged inappropriate behaviour, they refuse to speak up or acknowledge it. I was told the producers had called them to set. But it was a duet song as far as I remember. Now, she's saying #MeToo in the hope of shedding light on what the film industry brushes under the carpet. "There is no scope for a better work environment if A-listers do not boycott actors like Nana Patekar", she added. She says that she had been to the sets as a reporter on behalf of Aaj Tak to collect some behind the scenes stories and had encountered a visibly upset Tanushree, tensed choreographer and director in a heated up talk and halted shooting. According to Zoom TV, Dutta revealed that even though the industry insiders allegedly knew about Nana Patekar's reportedly indecent behaviour with women, no one spoke about it.

She adds that the director and producer did not heed to her complaints. Acharya rubbished Dutta's allegations that Nana misbehaved with her and said that whatever Tanushree alleges, never happened. In the film industry, everybody knows that he is rude to women and has also beaten them on the sets. My daughter will not do an intimate step with this man (Nana Patekar) because he has bad intentions. That he beats and assaults them is known to all but because of his PR nobody raises voice against him and everything is washed away in stream of gossips.

She opened up about an incident on the set of Horn "Ok" Pleassss in 2008.

She added, "Akshay Kumar has made few films with Nana Patekar in last eight years and Rajinikanth also recently worked with him (in Kaala)".

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 auto".

Speaking about the #MeToo movement, she said, "The Me Too movement will never arrive in India because of the industry's hypocrisy".

"If such big stars continue to work with these people, what hope is there for any movement to happen", she asked. "They will cast all the other actors in the films but the lead actress will be recommended by the lead actor".
