Former Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta had recently accused actor Nana Patekar of harassment, while the duo was shooting for a song sequence in the film 'Horn OK Please'. The actress had alleged that Nana Patekar wanted to do intimidate steps with her in a song, which he initially was not supposed to be a part of. Post the incident in 2008, the actress had filed a complaint, but it reached no conclusion. The actress had moved to the United States of America post the incident. Recently, after 10 years, Dutta returned to Mumbai and made headlines after she once again shed light on the past incident. In a recent interview, when she was questioned whether the #MeToo moment will take place in India, she said that it will not happen until she gets justice for what happened to her 10 years ago and went on to narrate the incident.
Recently, in an exclusive conversation with Republic TV, Tanushree Dutta's Advocate, Nitin Satpute opened up about the proceedings of the legal course of action on Tanushree Dutta's complaint against Nana Patekar
"Yesterday we have moved the complaint about lodging a fresh FIR, or we will continue with the whole FIR and we will seek further investigation in that matter. If the police fail to register a case or investigate this matter, then we will file a private complaint before the magistrate seeking action against the police officer who has not recorded her statement properly and register a criminal action against him. Plus, we are moving to the High Court by filing a petition to seek direction and implement the Vishaka Committee for every working place, for the safety purpose of all and avoid sexual harassment at the working place"
Meanwhile, Tanushree Dutta has received two legal notices, one each from Nana Patekar and Vivek Agnihotri. She had accused Vivek Agnihotri of asking her to strip naked on the sets of the film 'Chocolate' in 2005. Dutta has been receiving multiple threats from the political party MNS and Nana Patekar, and is currently under police protection. Nana Patekar and Ganesh Acharya will be holding a press conference on October 8.
