Tanushree Dutta Slams Nana Patekar & Raj Thackeray's MNS

Balayya’s Heroine Shocking Allegations on Actor! Nana Patekar accused of having ‘a history of assaulting women’

The latest to come out was actress Tanushree Dutta, who made the shocking revelation that she was harassed by veteran actor Nana Patekar about 10-years-ago. She further said that during the shoot of Horn Ok Please in 2008, she was not just pushed but also intimidated by Nana Patekar on the sets. "He asked, 'Deti hai kya?' (Does she put out?) This is the attitude in Bollywood and the film industry in India". I was told the producers had called them to set. I know Nana Patekar wanted to do was an intimate sequence with me.

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

A recent interview in which Tanushree has stated that the #MeToo movement will never arrive in India because of the industry's hypocrisy, has refreshed discussion about her unsavoury experience and allegations.

In a video interview with Zoom, Tanushree has also claimed that everyone in the film industry is aware of Nana Patekar's history of assaulting women but no-one ever speaks about it.

"I complained to the producer and the director about him pulling me and teaching me dance steps". She told the publication that she had brought up allegations of sexual harassment in the industry way before Hollywood took on the issue past year through the Me Too movement, but no one had paid heed to her. Tanushree has been speaking a lot about how Bollywood is dominated by these senior actors who oppress and harass newcomers, especially women in the industry. He has beaten few actresses on the sets and also molested them. Nana is yet to react on this but 10 years ago he had dismissed the allegations and said that no one has said these things about him in past so Tanushree's complaint is not valid at all. She says that actors like Rajnikant and Khiladi Kumar to be sensitive enough not to work with him.

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. If such big stars will keep working with these culprits then there's no hope for any movement to happen", she was quoted as saying.

"These film actors in our country know the technology of how to package and present themselves so they come across as saintly and people don't know what is happening behind their back". We can not expect change until what happened to me in 2008 is acknowledged, she had said.
