Tanushree Dutta makes SHOCKING revelations about Nana Patekar takes potshots at Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth

The actress made revelations during a video interview with Zoom TV. Ms Dutta says she has spoken about the alleged harassment several times over the last decade and was isolated.

She also alleged that people in Bollywood knew about Nana Patekar's harassment of women actors but stayed mum about it, and big stars like Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth worked with him despite his acts of indecency against women in the film fraternity. Speaking to ANI, Dutta said that Patekar allegedly misbehaved with her and her complaint to the makers went unaddressed.

For those unaware, the incident occurred when Tanushree was shooting for a dance sequence in Horn Ok Pleassss, and her co-star, Nana, began getting too close to her and tried to grab her from behind.

Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta has alleged that she was sexually harassed by the veteran Bollywood actor Nana Patekar.

She named three people on the film set who knew about the incident, including song choreographer Ganesh Acharya, producer Sami Siddiqui and director Rakesh Sarang.

Michelle Guthrie Dumped As ABC Boss
The ABC board has commenced a formal search, both internally and externally, for Ms Guthrie's replacement. Milne conceded Guthrie had done a "pretty good" job turning the ABC towards its digital future.

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".

On Nana Patekar and his reputation, Ganesh said, "He's a very sweet person, he can never do that". Else, had her voice been registered back then, Tanushree's story could be the initial of exposing casting couch. Nine people called me and said "hey, we are with you". The Bollywood beauty also claimed that numerous directors and the actors of the Indian film fraternity are equally obscene but no one dares to point them out because of the fear of losing roles and opportunities.

"I was a cub reporter in 2008, assigned by Aaj Tak and Headlines Today to cover the BTS of a song being shot for this film". #NanaPatekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya and a man (who I later found was the producer) were having a conversation, while 50-odd dancers sat waiting.

Meanwhile, two other Bollywood stars were asked about the controversy. Aamir Khan said something similar - that without knowing the veracity of the issue he could not comment. He said that neither is his name Tanushree nor Nana, so how is he supposed to answer this question. He added that the matter should be investigated.
