Former actress Tanushree Dutta has created a stir after she has alleged veteran actor Nana Patekar on account of sexual harassment. She recalled the incident that happened on the sets 2009 film ‘Horn Ok Please’, Tanushree says that she raised her voice at that time also but no one bothered to do anything. In an interview with Zoom, she says: "Everyone knows about Nana Patekar that he has always been disrespectful towards women. People in the industry know about his background... that he has beaten actresses, he has molested them, his behaviour with women has always been crude but no publication has printed anything about it."
She also claimed that the #Metoo movement would never reach India as no one really stands for the cause. She added that though people spoke about the controversy, nobody took action and the case was brushed off as if nothing had happened.
She also targeted A-list stars Akshay Kumar and Rajnikant to keep working with Nana even when they knew about the case. She said: "Akshay Kumar has made few films with Nana Patekar in last eight years and Rajinikanth also recently worked with him (in Kaala)... If such big stars will keep working with these culprits then there's no hope for any movement to happen. Everyone has gossiped about this but they've never spoken. People with this kind of character speak like this against the kind of character that I have because they say she does glamourous roles so must be glamorous and all. Behind the back, they are so dirty. When you are in the industry you hear so many stories about these actors. But these things never take surface because they are PR packaged very well. They will give some money to some poor farmers. How much they do and how much they don't know, no one knows. But all this is just for show."
Tanushree Dutta debuted in 2005 film Aashiq Banaya Aapne and then she went on to star in films like Dhol, Good Boy, Bad Boy and Apartment, which was her last onscreen appearance.
