In Sex Harassment Case, Tanushree Dutta Files FIR Against Nana Patekar

"No one from the federation will work with that person, howsoever he or she is powerful", Ashoke Pandit, FWICE chief advisor, said.

In March 2008, Dutta had signed a contract with producer Samee Siddiqui's Sunrise Pictures Pvt Ltd to appear in an item song in his film "Horn Ok Pleassss", which was directed by Rakesh Sarang and starred Patekar. "When he was touching me indecently and unnecessary I felt very uncomfortable because of his behaviour, I felt he has outraged my modesty", the letter read.

Dutta had also claimed that she had complained to the song's choreographer Ganesh Acharya, but she was forced to do scenes which were intimate and included Patekar touching her inappropriately.

Dutta had sought the Commission's intervention after claiming that Patekar allegedly misbehaved with her on the sets of a film in 2008. When he was asked earlier about the ongoing Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar controversy, he had said that he could not react to the controversy since he was neither Nana nor Tanushree Dutta. She called her parents and wanted to go home.

The MSCW will also be writing to production houses in Mumbai to ensure compliance with the requirement by law of setting up of internal complaints committee to deal with issues of sexual harassment. She claimed that the men violently attacked her auto "as they were very angry at me for refusing to do a dance step with Patekar and complaining about his behavior".

"After the incident, I was in tremendous shock, I suffered psychological trauma, was unable to take up work, suffered huge monetary losses running in crores and therefore I made a decision to take action through the film industry by lodging a written complaint with the Cine and TV Artistes Association".

"'She must have been on her periods'". Police sources said Dutta, along with two female witnesses, a hair-dresser and a make-up artist. Recently, Dutta received an apology from CINTAA for not taking timely action after she filed a complaint. So, we will give them time to respond.
