Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar Controversy

Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar Controversy

Nana had outrightly denied the allegations and it was being reported that he will hold a press conference to present his side of the story. The text message, sent out late on Sunday, read, "Just wanted to inform that there's no press conference tomorrow".

The Me Too movement in India was sparked off after Bollywood actor Tanushree Dutta's shocking confession that veteran actor Nana Patekar allegedly sexually harassed her on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2008.

Despite his announcement, some media personnel gathered outside his residence. Back then, in several interviews she had said that Nana Patekar made her so uncomfortable while shooting for a special number, that she eventually had to opt out of the film.

Refusing to answer questions, Patekar said his lawyer has advised him to not speak to television channels, reported ABP News.

Pakistan handed a debut to allrounder Bilal Asif , while Mohammad Hafeez returned to the Test side after a two-year absence. Off-spinner Nathan Lyon was quick to make an impact with the new ball but was denied the wicket of Sohail by the DRS.

Dutta said she had also received "violent threats" from the fringe, far-right nationalist group Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and has been hounded by a "smear campaign" on social media since reiterating her claims against the pair. At a time when #MeToo debate was heating up after Tanushree's allegations, Nana was busy shooting for Housefull 4 in Rajasthan.

Dutta's complaint, filed in Oshiwara police station in Mumbai, also names choreographer Ganesh Acharya, producer Sameer Siddiqui and director Rakesh Sarang.

Apart from Nana Patekar, film industry members Vikas Bahl, Kailash Kher and Rajat Kapoor have also been accused of harassment and misconduct. A CINTAA official told news agency PTI that they will, in fact, reinvestigate if Ms Dutta wants them to and that they will also hear out Nana Patekar, Ms Dutta's alleged harasser, in the interest of a "fair and unbiased" inquiry.
